Ecotone by Volbeat

Album: Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady LadiesReleased: 2013
  • Vocalist Michael Poulsen explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "If you Google 'Ecotone,' you'll get a really explanation about it," he said. "It's where if you're in the wilderness and you walk around, there will be a certain line where civilization and the wilderness meet exactly. However, there is a difference. You can plant a flower on one side of the line, and it will blossom. Fifteen centimeters away from that line, you won't be able to grow anything, it will die. It's a balance of a center where you almost are at the same place, but the differences are huge. It's where civilization actually meets the wilderness somehow. It's a very interesting subject."

    "I took that and thought, "What if 'Ecotone' was something you had in your own system as a human being?" I made a lyric out of it," Poulsen continued. "It's a sensation area between two environments. It's where two communities meet and integrate. Imagine you're building new technology on one side, and the next second you're attacked by a tiger. It's definitely a cool subject."
