Album release "II"
Octantrion’s second album, simply titled “II”, was released on October 22, 2021 in France and the rest of the world.
On the cover, the mythical bird of the Vikings. Hugin (from Old Norse huginn meaning “thought” or “spirit”) and Munin (meaning memory) are the two messenger crows who accompany the god Odin and who serve as an intermediary between the world of humans and that of the gods. This is the common thread of this album.
IN THE PRESS
Prog Female Voices
With II, Octantrion offers a dense album, both dark and bright, which will become a classic
Sun Burns Out
Music circulates between eras, uplifts the soul and exudes an intoxicating sense of spirituality
Juke Box Experimental
A Scandinavian utopia played on ancestral instruments, cinematographic music between Vikings, Deliverance and Game of Thrones
Centre Presse Aveyron
This second opus is incredibly rich. Superb
Fascinating! We discover music not so far from post-folk, even jazz. Of that dark, visceral blues energy
Favorite of the week. We really liked the cinematographic aspect of this project
