The Gates Of Aramore

Limb Music
2. June 2023


Austin Dixon, former guitarist and founding member of US power metallers Sonic Prophecy, is fulfilling a lifelong dream with PRYDAIN. He has always been fascinated by the idea of artist projects such as the albums by Avantasia, the Aina rock opera "Days of Rising Doom" or Arjen Lucassen's "Star One". Thanks to the support of Greek multi-talent Bob Katsionis, Austin's compositions were put into practice with great musicians.

"The Gates of Aramore" is an epitome of Epic Power Metal: vibrating guitar duels, virtuoso keyboard parts, awesome vocals, driving grooves, catchy melodies – and a storyline consisting of an ancient kingdom beyond space and time. The album's lyrics are inspired by various books and video games: "Quest of the Fallen" by Fred Saberhagen's "Sword" saga, "Sacred Ashes" by the game "Dragon Age: Origins" and "Blessed & Divine" by the trilogy "The Dragonlance Chronicles" (Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman).

With "The Gates of Aramore", Austin Dixon and his comrades-in-arms have succeeded in creating some work that once again puts Utah on the map of epic power metal, certainly not for the last time...
