Of Men And Mer
Maw Of The Rift
Sanctuary Of The Moors

A triumvirate of metal – heavy, black and thrash – combines to devastating effect amidst a backdrop of tales from Neolithic through to Victorian.

Invoked by the sights and soundscapes of the bleak passes and sparsely-trodden paths of the remote moorlands, Arendia draw inspiration from local nature and lore, with all lyrical facts fully researched and verified.  “Of Men And Mer” tells of the olden ice age which occupied these valleys and gorges, “Maw Of The Rift” mourns a local villager who had an occult experience and met a gory end, “1534” tolls a bell revealing a battle that took place during a religious feast.  “Sanctuary Of The Moors” is a voyage in wanderlust, and “Winterhold” relives the times of the first leader of Anglezarke, Analf, who ruled in the area known as Winterhold, now named Winter Hill.
