1782 about the new song:« Accabadora » is a figure that existed in Sardinia. She was a woman dressed in black who put an end to people’s suffering. The last testimony of her intervention dates back to 1952. She wandered around the village at night in search of open doors, if she found one it meant that inside that house a life was about to extinguish. She had her wooden hammer and with it, gave a strong blow to the back of the head, putting an end to the person’s suffering. She was also called the « Priestess of Death ». This song wants to convey the feeling you could have while waiting for this woman — anxiety, torment and perhaps peace. »
