IATTON… Chihei Hatakeyama – Requiem For Black Night And Earth Spiders

Earth spiders is a historical Japanese derogatory term for renegade local clans and also the name for a race of spider-like yōkai in Japanese folklore.

The album that this track is part of is inspired by the theory that earth spiders were people conquered by the Yamato Imperial court at the end of the 3rd Century Yayoi Period forced to work in mine and the sorrow they would have felt.
