Incident on River Sirion I began writing this song in 2009. While working on it, two years later, in July 2011, news came of the insane massacre on the island of Utoya, Norway. The impact on me was devastating, and this song is my cry of pain. The rhythm is an unusual departure from the usual 4:4 of popular music, being written with 16 beat bars grouped at 3-3-3-3-4. I was looking, in this way, to sustain a high and continuous level of tension. The title comes from Tolkein's Silmarillion, in which the Noldorin elves attack the largely defenceless refugees from Morgoth's invasion of Beleriand.
