The songs of Haunted Mountain were written in mountains: by cold springs in the Serra de Estela of Portugal, on the submerged volcano of Milos in the Cyclades, Valle Oonsernone in the Swiss Alps (where Haunted Mountain's cover photo was taken), and the Santa Monica range where Meek now calls home - all where his new love was born.

Haunted Mountain is about love and... something other.  Something bigger than love, something that doesn't challenge love exactly, but stands in contrast to it.  Love is a consciousness here, interacting with the lovers, greeting them, watching them sometimes, becoming them sometimes.  It extends beyond romance, examining the inexhaustible bond between mother and sun, and asks - is love a form of magic?
