A song about Aes Sídhe, the Irish term for a supernatural race in Irish mythology and Scottish mythology.

The Aes Sídhe are generally described as stunningly beautiful, though they can also be terrible and hideous.

I wanted the irish history vibe to come out through the Celtic influences in the first parts in the song but at the same time giving a feeling of passion and rich history and mysticism as well.

ENJOY! \m/


Sounds like a Celtic Folk song or something straight from the Lord of The Rings movies. The trills were really impressive, as was the soloing - a lot of feeling/emotion in there. That keyboard solo was awesome too.

Very sexy indeed.

DanJohansen responds:

Thanks for the awesome review Xenogeno! Heard your music many times, awesome stuff!
Yeah I made a track specifically taken from Celtic history :D Nice catch!

More melodic metal! The beginning was beautifully done, and then it transitioned into a beautiful mesh of harmony and straight metal. The use of synths in this song were a very welcome addition, and only added to the song's greatness. The transitions are very well done, as far as I can hear with my ONE EAR STILL BEING A DICK... *ahem* Sorry about that.

ANYWAY, I daresay this is on the level of "Edge of the Sword", which I know was made after this, but I still get the same vibe! Yet another to add to my fight music list! Well done, well done!

DanJohansen responds:

The tunes are def in the same vein! Kind of like brother tunes haha, glad you dig this one as well man! :D Rock on!

As always, you are a God among mortals. I think I'm gonna marathon your entire back catalog to motivate myself to get back into recording. 5/5 would fap to again.

DanJohansen responds:

Hey long time no see Lebansker! Where have you been shit! :D
Glad you dig the tune brother, and welcome back!

Love the piece! So tight and flowing.
The keys sounded awesome, especially in a metal song.
Keep up the riffing!

DanJohansen responds:

Thanks for an awesome and spirited review man, appreciate it like hell \m/ Glad you enjoyed the tune and rock on!

Lore themed song are the best, and those 8bit like sounds start at 2:00 are perfectly assembled. Man, this here are a great and an astonishingly awesome song. 5/5

DanJohansen responds:
