“Orog Nuur”, the first single from sophomore album II, is a deceptively simple statement, opening with guitarist Jonsson’s plodding riff that lays the groundwork for magnificent tremolo-picked tribal bridge. It’s during this latter section, more than anywhere on this record, and ironically bookended with the phrase “there is no escape,” that it feels like this whole end-of-the-world thing might actually be kind of fun. It’s triumphant and huge, filled with power and awe and resolution…and it doesn’t last. Jonsson from the band explain:
"This song got its name from a lake in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia. Like nomads in a cosmic desert we were happy to find this portal to another dimension. But we got unexpected company and not even the flames can save us. There is no escape. They breed in fire."
