First official Troll Breeder single. Passage 5 is a song about rites of passage and a rite of passage on its own at the same time.

Breaking conventions to provoke cognitive dissonance is what inspired this song. Heavy inspiration was taken from the uncommon all fifths tuning of the guitar as the main instrument. Tension and harmony, as well as an aggressive part reflect on the different phases of such a rite.

This single being the debut release for Troll Breeder makes it a rite of passage on its own. From interior to exterior, from individual to culture.
The song fits conceptually into themes of the upcoming full length release "Den of Trolls", experimenting with various, progressive forms of metal and combining them with classical and medieval elements.
