The band explains: “The Moon and Magic” is the link between “Reader of the Runes – Divination” and the next chapters of the story to come. The song was written with the rest of the Divination material and was recorded during the sessions of the album but we wanted to have a bridge-song to be released between the first and the second album. It has been the last song written for the album with this specific idea in mind. The mood of both the music and the lyrics is kind of “calm-before-the storm”, a scene that catches the silence before everything reaches its climax. Plunge yourself into the Moon and Magic and read the Lines that no one reads…”
With the impressive history of ELVENKING in mind, you can’t really deny it: The Folk Power Metal Band is one of the most important and unique bands on the scene, which has consistently followed its path and established itself in Europe among the bands that produce powerful metal music with folk and pagan Unite influences.
In 2019 the band released their tenth masterpiece: “Reader Of The Runes – Divination”. The concept album is an exciting journey into a mystical world of runes, magic and ancient powers far from the tangible. But it’s not just the overwhelming concept that makes “Reader Of The Runes – Divination” the most epic album that ELVENKING has ever recorded. Musically it is also an album that brings a breath of fresh air to the sound of the Italians and at the same time remains inimitably true to the sound of the band.
