A little more than a year after the acclaimed, massive Frozen Bloom, Olhava is back with a brand new studio album.
Reborn explores yet another side of the relationship between man and nature. In a darker turn, the duo presents a more pessimistic and cautionary reflection on the environment in contrast to their previous albums.
“Reborn is a story about a man who forgot what brought him here. Who neglected a precious, parental, and primordial bond with nature; who unconsciously destroys the one and only home we all share, along with himself. The irreversible damage we do to our environment will see mankind “beheaded”, whilst nature and life itself will thrive eternally.
We’d like to believe though that if we realised the value of that bond and embraced it, we’d be given a glimpse of hope in this fatalistic madness – a chance to be spared.The cover art by MarGoat of an exhausted Mother Nature ritualistically destroying and cleansing herself of humanity using human hands as her very own tools forces us to reflect on our significance. She is about to be Reborn in a new floral form”.
