Winter's Gate is a concept album made up of one epic 40 minute song. The album is built around a short story, Winter's Gate (Talven portti in Finnish), written by vocalist & bassist Niilo Sevänen, recipient of numerous Finnish awards and nominations.
The compelling short story is about a group of Vikings who set out to find a fabled island west of Ireland, despite the treacherous winter drawing near. This version includes the album in cd format, English version of the Winter's Gate short story + the album lyrics.
