ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The latest offering from The Dolmen, one of the real rising stars of the ever popular British Celtic Rock scene, is something to be truly savored. This band, a no-nonsense, gig-hardened group of piratical rebel-rousers from the wild green hills of Dorset, have never had to struggle to be different, they simply are.

Their music is many things all at once, mystical, thoughtful, raw and energised, the quintessential band for all seasons. Fresh from their global success as the writers of the anthem for the New Seven Wonders of the World the largest Global Vote in the history of mankind, this band ooze individuality and promise from every pore.

Formed back in the early 1990s by front-man Tony (Taloch) Jameson, they have become firm festival favourites, their albums always reflecting the power of their now legendary live performances. This album is certainly no different in that respect, though the subject matter is quite unique, packed full as it is of songs that celebrate the rise and fall of the winter sun.

The Dolmen have produced a remarkable album, quite unlike any other, a Yuletide album for the ages. The songs, all original and penned from within the band or its environs are so very instantly memorable, as to easily stand the test of time.

From the opening track ‘Witches Reel’, a rousing song about a genuine witch trial from the 17th century, to the last track, ‘Bringing The Outside In’, a fantastic, lively homage to early 1970s rock God, Marc Bolan, the Winter Solstice album is full of innovative surprises at every turn.

Keeping alive the traditions of the country they love, The Dolmen’s new album is both ground-breaking and solid, seamlessly adding to their growing reputation as one of England’s most inventive and extraordinary musical forces.

If you’ve never heard the music of The Dolmen, end your misery now and enter a world where past and present flow side by side with originality and pure energy.
