More information: On recent albums, Von Hertzen Brothers have succeeded skilfully with that balancing act, interspersing their multipart, 10-minute-plus suites with a few snappier, arena-friendly anthems. And, perhaps just as importantly, they’ve retained a thoughtful lyrical substance, whether in the wanderlust themes of 2015’s New Day Rising or 2017’s not-quite-as-simplistic-as-it-sounds War Is Over.
This eighth studio album is perhaps their most thematically focused yet, the title referring to concern over the neglect and wanton destruction of nature, inspired by the Von Hertzens’ rural upbringing.
