Gales of Avalon / Press

“For a first effort it's a professional job. The CD comes with a good-looking booklet, photos, notes etc and the full story can be found on-line. The production is great, lots of nuances and subtlety within the arrangements. The fact that the founder, Mark once called Newfoundland (Canada's own Black Island?) home, the cover art and story make sense. Maritime Metal doesn't get any better than this.”

“The production is more than adequate, sometimes the vocals seem a little too low in the mix, that is definitely a minor complaint, though, I have said it before and I will say it again, GALES OF AVALON have everything that it takes to grow into a potential major force given some time and the right marketing, if you like your Black Metal melodic, laced with Death Metal, spiced up with acoustic guitars, some piano, some Viking-like melodies and rhythms, then check out these guys, you might be one of the first of many!”
