The concept research information shows, that also the lyrical concept is 100% classic Manilla Road.
“THE FROST GIANT’S DAUGHTER” was inspired by the story of the same name written by Robert E. Howard.
“OUT OF THE ASHES” was inspired by Virgil’s “The Aeneid”.
“GATES OF FIRE” was inspired by the heroic stand of King Leonides and his Spartans at the battle of Thermopylae.
The excellent cover artwork was painted by Jowita Kaminska. www.jowita-art.com
