“The smoke from the extinguished candles has only just settled from our 10th Birthday celebrations of "The Master and the Monkey" and yet we find ourselves with the 10-Year anniversary of the release of our sophomore album, Road to Darkness, coming up very soon indeed!
It’s fantastic to be able to make this album available again to mark 10 years of its existence! The vinyl release is especially exciting as, from the fantastic artwork to the space-rock thematic, if there was ever one of our records that was 'made' for the Vinyl format, this was it! The fact our previous limited edition Vinyl releases have previously sold out is a great feeling, especially knowing these LPs take little time in becoming rare collector’s items!
Seven years ago we released, what we consider to be, the first real Gandalf's Fist album: Road to Darkness. The album was recorded over the course of a weekend by Dean and Luke and propelled us into micro-stardom!
Using the original multi-track sessions and compositions, the release retains the essence and spirit of the original album but brings the sonic palette up to dare with our intention being it can sit seamlessly alongside our more recent releases. We really think it sounds great!
Road to Darkness is a sinister space-rock re-imagining of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Lyman Frank Baum, chronicling the tale of a young girl transported to the alien world of Io by an evil sorcerer.
Inspired by Gandalf's Fist's love of science fiction and fantasy and influenced by 70's era progressive rock, the sound could be roughly categorized as Arthur C Clarke taking guitar lessons from David Gilmour before jumping into a Delorean to kidnap L Frank Baum.
It's a mix of Classic-Rock style songs, instrumental sections, hard rock riffs, blues solos, narrative passages and harmonious choruses. With the odd smattering of shanty/folk thrown in for good measure!”
