Rime by A Hero From A Thousand Paces
[Music by Adam Cook]
["Nought is given 'neath the sun
Nought is had that is not won"
- Swedish Hymn
Rime was written specifically as the instrumental ending to this album.
Possibly, it is the most focused song A Hill to Die Upon has ever written.
Rime is very concentrated on feeling and emotion rather than speed and aggression.
Groove rather than speed.
The complete lack of blasting and the use of more epic sections focusing on the guitar progressions, we feel, gives this song a greatness that sets it apart and is perfect to end the album.
The title was given to follow a cold theme for this album -- in association with the Rime giants of Jutonheim in Horse mythology.
Rime is our giant.]
