Band - "The Tay"

The River Tay is the longest river in Scotland, flowing about 120 miles from its source on the north slopes of Ben Lui to the North Sea beyond the city of Dundee. I’ve selected four places in the course of the river as the inspiration for the music.There's more information here

Band - "Shapeshifter"

"The Lange Wapper"  or Shapeshifter is a legendary figure from the city of Antwerp. His origins are unknown, but he is an interesting figure. Read more about him and this descriptive tone poem here
