Leylines is the prequel to 'The Legend of Serundal:(A Trilogy).
The Celtic lands are alive with energy, oozing with echoes and secrets of the past, a path 'carved out by the wind.'
Centuries before, a scholar monk obsessed with learning finds a strange text. Night after night he pours over the strange language trying to decode the mysterious symbols. After many moons of searching he cracks open the code. What he sees no man should see. It is apocalyptic; a revelation. He wants to stop his research but he is totally engrossed in his discovery. He sees a beautiful lady meeting with her lover in a secret garden. He sees a relationship turning to tragedy and a heart full of bitterness. He sees a grotesque supernatural presence permeating the land and a chain of bright immortal beings surrounding their kingdom to defend it from the invaders. In his final vision he sees a boy child being crowned king and handed a very beautiful sword.. He craves to learn more but the text fights back, spontaneously combusts and is destroyed.Is the secret of the Legend of Serundal gone forever?
Where do you come from? When you walk through a hallowed place do you sense that you have been there before? Why do leylines converge on sacred ground? To produce this album Serundal has gone back to the future.They have taken what is pure and unique about the music of other centuries and made a potion. In the mix, light mesmerising vocals and harmonies are ingeniously blended with a powerfully raw and edgy sound produced by 21st century instruments. Every track in this album is driven by an unseen energy.
Listen in a darkened room. The colours and images are amazing. Are you sure you haven’t been here before?
