We are very happy to announce the release of our second album ‘The Ravages of Time’ due for release June 23rd 2017
‘The Ravages of Time’ continues to develop the sound Selene established on their debut release, showcasing the angelic soprano voice of Shonagh Lyons along with epic orchestration and heavy riffs, while also taking it in a more mature direction that is sure to satisfy fans of bands such as Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Kamelot and Serenity.
Band founder and main songwriter John Connor had the following to say about the album ‘Ravages of Time is a much more ambitious release than the first album I think. Stylistically we have gone to more extremes than before, with the album as a whole being faster and heavier than previous releases and leaning more on our Power Metal roots, but on the other side of the scale, there are songs such as ‘This Life’ which is much softer and emotionally driven than any previous songs. We spent a year non-stop working on this release and I don’t think it will disappoint”
This release will be followed by a show in Voodoo, Dublin with Folk Metal legends Cruachan on July 15th with details of an album launch show to follow.
Album pre-orders are now live on bandcamp for both standard and special editions of the album, both of which give the two current singles, Ashes and Burning Bridges as an instant download.
