The second release by Avalon Rising features a vibrant collection of progressive Celtic, Pagan, and original rock songs ranging from fiery dance tunes to atmospheric ballads, with a mystical presence evocative of Otherwhere and Otherwhen. This cosmic collection features scintillating instrumental solos by Kristoph Klover (electric guitar), Cat Taylor (electric violin), and Margaret Davis (flute and harp), capably backed by the powerful rhythm section of Mark Ungar, Kevin Fanning, and Scott Irwin. Lead singers Klover and Davis deliver dynamic vocal treatments of these timeless traditionals and fresh originals.
