“An all too human heart” is the culmination of a mental fire and ice. The forces of Muspell and Nivl collided into a frenzy of poetic lyrics and hard riffs, willing this song to be a revolt against myself and my own myth. It echoes the works of Aleister Crowley and John Muir, and certain lines of the lyrics were written all the way back in 2005. It’s the most personally challenging and painful song I’ve ever done, because I had to work through so many demons in order to clear the right path for it to take shape and become what it wanted to be. To me this song is like looking into a broken mirror, not knowing if the cracks are in the glass or in yourself. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what about the darkness? – Stein Akslen, Minneriket (2017)
