With a ardour for the world of antiquity, Brynilde has studied the traditional cultures and traditions not solely of the Nords however the Greeks, and Greek philosophy, Buddhism and French Renaissance philosophers like Descartes. All these messages type of converge within the message of the album, which is concerning the distinction of life and discovering magnificence in that distinction. Brynilde sums it up greatest herself:

Impressed by historical symbols, folktales, and alchemic processes, melodies and lyrics began rising from my psyche. My first album, the Sound of the Winter Solar, was born. The inventive expression has been a device to heal and free myself, exorcise some feelings, and feed my soul. My songs discover totally different themes, akin to id, braveness, authenticity, habit, individuation, actuality, and spirituality, with the identical overarching aim of breaking free from the chains of perceptions and emotional triggers.

It nearly appears like a bonus for Brynilde that the album got here out of all this soul-searching, however that’s what makes it so genuine.

In different tracks like “Ungracefulness,” guitars are what ship the music in a extra indie or rock route; heavy, grungy and barely goth with the orchestral preparations, listeners ought to be capable of catch a little bit of Evanesence or perhaps a little bit of Brightman’s Phantom contained therein. But others are lighter and actually depart Brynilde to her personal gadgets along with her piano, akin to one other tune that references antiquity, “Hecate.” It’s truthfully greater than sufficient with Brynilde’s voice alone. It beggars perception that earlier in her profession she felt she had vocal pitching issues.

The observe that greatest sums up Brynilde’s sound, message and objective on The Sound of the Winter Solar might be “Echos de Tonnerre” (fr. “echoes of thunder”).

Paired with nearer “I See Magnificence,” It’s clear that this album was a journey of feelings, struggles and contrasts, however on the finish comes such a good looking reward.

With a mode that’s already so developed, it nonetheless appears that after The Sound of the Winter Solar Brynilde can nonetheless go in any route she desires. She may do a full-on EDM album and be completely lauded, or she may keep in her present area of interest of indie ambient.
