Shady woods of oak, the silvery stream that cuts through the sunlit meadow; the merry track winding its way down green lanes and passing by a long vanished homestead, where the ghosts of another time still huddle by the glowing hearthside and listen to the tales of their ancestors. Tales of heroes, outlaws and denizens from the Otherside. Since 2002, Dark Forest have drawn inspiration from these elements, channelling the essence and magic of Albion into their music and rekindling the love, joy and strength that can be found in the rich legacy of legend and folklore and the unconquerable and enduring spirit of their homeland. Here begins a journey through time, through reality, and straight into the Heart of the Rose.
