    a din of hacking and gouging

    please help me understand the meaning of underlined words and whole sentence:
    how are we to account for this ceaseless din of hacking and gouging?

    Re: a din of hacking and gouging

    Pirates fighting, or Knights?

    din: a continued loud or tumultuous sound; noisy clamor.
    hacking: To cut or chop with repeated and irregular blows: hacked down the saplings.
    gouging: to dig or force out with or as if with a gouge: to gouge out an eye.


    All the best.
