The second album from English Celtic pagan folk metal band, The Wolves of Avalon, is a smouldering echo from a time when there was no England, Scotland or Wales, only the forest clad isles of Britain. A pagan land of tribal conflict and woad painted warriors, now lost in the corrosive passing of time.
The album deals with one of the great British war leaders, Boudicca, a queen who stood against the might of Rome shortly after the great Druid sanctuary of, Ynys Môn, was ruthlessly destroyed and the very heart of druid culture wiped from the face of the Earth. Continuing the bands atmospheric use of Flute, Mandolin and violins, the band have introduced Cello and Accordion to enrich the olden age atmospheres further.
Lyrically, Metatron's embodiment of classic verse brings to life flesh tearing slaughter and clamouring battle carnage, interwoven with coarse narratives and a collision of guest vocalists, including Thurios from Drudkh/ Astrofaes, Varggoth [Nokturnal Mortum], Alyona 'Aeterna' [Russia], Hildr Valkyrie, bleeding vociferous angst into the music's organic soul. The bands engine room, Steve Clark, percussion and major song smith. Guitarist, J. Marinos, hold the multi faceted audio experience together in a typically British sound.
