About the album:
Opening Scene: Ddulden is standing at the edge of steep mountain slope. He seems to stare at the highest peak by the other side of the valley he used to know so well. Eyes full of hope, he is about to step into the void riding his handmade flying machine to achieve his lifelong goal: reach the peak and explore what is beyond...
« Ddulden’s Last Flight » is a concept album resuming aspects of progressive music standards. Its role is to musically depict the journey of a hero evolving within an adventure story, based upon the original script from the unfinished eponym movie. As usual, Grorr uses societal issues as a writing material, brought here by Luddism and Neo-Luddism ways of thinking. As well as being a soundtrack telling a coming-of-age chronicle, this opus is also a logbook for the band, who wanted to inject its own story into the journey.
