One-man stoner rock project, Nidhöggs was born out of a desire to express emotions that are far too personal and strong to be shared in a group. Thus, it is alone in his home studio that the artist composes, writes, records and mixes what he feels.
This album was entirely composed in 2 weeks, full of negative emotions. Anger, pain and melancholy try to express themselves in a mix of heavy riffs, uncontrolled screams, improvised guitar solos or strange acoustic melodies.
The recording, as well as the mixing and mastering, are completely amateurish and were done by the artist himself, in his home studio.
So you will have understood, »Persecution« is an attempt at expression well before being the fruit of a search for musical complexity.
The art cover is a simple collage of art from several really cool artists, and tries to represent the persecution of our minds, as well as possible.
