2018 Hiidenhauta released their second full-length album “1695”.
The album’s theme revolves around the Great Famine of 1695-1697, a great calamity which beset the Finnish area at the time. During the period, approximately every third citizen of Finland (then under the Swedish rule) met their end as a result of starvation or epidemics.
December 2019 saw the beginning of the recording sessions for the third full-length album "Riivin". The album's theme is "The Devil in the Finnish Folklore." The album was released September 2020. Once again, Hiidenhauta is like a story they created: earthy, raw, angry, but also sounding like the endless beauty of nature.
The lyrics of Hiidenhauta are written in Finnish, abiding by the poetic Kalevala meter. History, nature and Finnish folklore are among the prominent themes of the band’s lyrics.
