Thematically focused upon the most important and powerful totem in the culture of southern Slavs, “Pra Sila – Vukov Totem” is a concept album specifically designed and dedicated to the Wolf as a mythological being.
Reflecting the world of impenetrable places, the symbol of Wolf carries different, often opposed meanings. In mythology regarded as the ancient ancestor of Serbian people, a creature with unusual attributes is believed to possess an obscure divine powers. The meeting of man and wolf is mystically dangerous, yet magnificent at the same time. It is the encounter with demonic being and concurrently the moment when a man meets his native forefather. In the world of wilderness abandoned by man, contradictory and strong, the Wolf represents everything we are not, unknown and terrifying – it is the perfection of a stranger.
With eight individual tracks exploring the metaphysical link between the ancestral prehistoric Wolf and the context of the contemporary age, “Pra Sila – Vukov Totem” is a vast spiritual journey throughout the realms of southern slavic mysticism.
