“The braying of horns, the fuming of tempers, the clanging of spear and shield. Call all the families of the dwarves to war!”
The Dwarves are very different from all the other races of popular fantasy; and likewise this latest Lonely Mountain Band album is very different from the preceding two albums. Beyond the Western Seas and Second Breakfast were collections of songs primarily based in the rustic roots of acoustic instruments; Halfling celebrations, Elven enchantment, and varied tales from a “minstrel with a wandering horse”. Galenhir, some know him as Galenswerd, is the minstrel I am in Middle-earth. By putting myself in the boots of this roving minstrel, I am able to wander the lands created by Tolkien and his predecessors like William Morris, and bring back songs and tales as gifts you my friends. The Dwarves, being utterly possessive of art and crafting of all sorts, have demanded I change some of the method for their chronicle in the Lonely Mountain Band archives. Dwarven music ranges from the obscene pub shanty to the highest form of orchestral hymns. This minstrel has tried to represent some of all of the conflicting emotions of the Dwarves. In all of it though, I have tried to tell some of the stories of the Dwarves. In a short album like this, one can only briefly touch upon some these epic themes and humourous outbursts.
