During the composition process, the band crossed a line further by playing at Motocultor 2015. Thanks to a well-acclaimed artistic performance and a good feedback from press, Drakwald had the opportunity to play with Ensiferum as main support during their French tour in late 2015.
At the same time, the band raised more than €5,000 through a successful crowdfunding campaign in order to produce his 2nd album: « Riven Earth ». Drakwald developed a strong lyrical concept about a dystopia where humanity returns to their pagan roots after the collapse of the whole society due to environmental issues; showing that paganism is nothing more than a communion with nature in all these ways. Released on May, 7th, 2016 through Dooweet Agency alongside a music video to promote it, the album is critically acclaimed by European medias.
In 2017, Drakwald played his first gigs in Belgium & Germany to promote Riven Earth until HellFest 2018 where the band played in front of 10,000 people.
