The New Album - Out Now!

Earlier this year we announced that work had begun on the follow up to last year’s “A Day in the Life of a Universal Wanderer”. The album received critically high praise with Prog/Classic Rock Magazine’s Geoff Barton voting it in his  Critic’s Choice list for 2013. 


Now we're delighted to share this page with you which should provide a nice little insight into what our creative process was in creating this album!

“A Forest of Fey” is the first release by the Gandalf's Fist as a four-piece and follows the psychedelic, folk-tinged journey of a young girl trapped in a malevolent woodland and features exciting guest contributions from Troy Donockley (Nightwish), John Mitchell (It Bites/Arena), Dave Oberlé (Gryphon), Clive Nolan (Pendragon/Arena) and Matt Stevens (Instrumental Artist/The Fierce and the Dead).

The bespoke Album art was created by German Artist Thomas Huth and the record is slated for an autumn release. 

A Forest of Fey is now finished and ready to prog your socks off!

The Album is now available to ORDER NOW via our Store - this really helps us out as independent musicians as it means we don't have to source out a label or going through third-party crowd funding websites... so cheers for helping us out! 
For those digitally inclined, you can also get the record on itunes, or any other digital retailer worth it's weight is salt! Nice! 

On this page you'll find a dedicated blog for the album which will provide further insights from everything from guest musicians, album art and even some song samples - why not have a trawl through what we've already posted?
 

A gap in in a hedge, innocent at first, leads down a lane few dare to tread.
Where a land filled with wonder awaits for all those who dare pass unseen.
The creatures that dwell here are fabulous yet familiar…
An Old English Gent; A prim and proper lady; the urchin boy full of fun and mischief
A travelling bunch of misfits who fill the world with sinister fun.
Ensnared for a time without end, a child stumbles into this world that is neither normal nor sane.
Guard yourself from the lands outside, for the world we create is not cruel, nor kind
Welcome one and all to the other side… please watch your head.
