Queen Cover Out Now!


Just in time for our very first headline UK tour, we’ve decided to release our cover version of legendary Queen’s "The Prophet’s Song" digitally — a befitting tribute (we hope) to the incredible rock music legacy of Britain, and a mighty epic and mysterious tune!

🎶 Check it out on Spotify:
🎶 ...and Apple Music:
Or of course on the music service of your choice.

We can’t wait to play this song, and many others, live for you during our very first UK tour in just a few days!

Come join us!

We’ve had some proper laughs making a rehearsal *space* video for this song! Thanks to a bit of technology you can, for the very first time, see what we see when we’re “in the zone” (and perhaps not entirely sober). Merlin and Ivo kept zapping in and out of reality, though — presumably to the far reaches of alternate universes, on a quest for inspiration for our next album...

The beautiful cover art for the single was created by immensely talented Celtic Botan from Brazil! We shall buy her a Caipirinha or two when we head over there in May. Check out her other work at!



We are beyond excited to announce our first headline tour visiting Ireland, Scotland and England! 
These are some of the most beautiful places in the world, and we feel a special connection to each of them. Ireland is Anna’s second homeland, and Merlin’s year is never complete without his pilgrimage to the highlands and Isles - that’s where they produce our favourite drink too! And of course Britain is home to some of the most important places in rock music history. It is about time that we bring our music over for an extended visit, after the incredible welcome we received at our first show in London last year! 

We are also very much looking forward to sharing the stage with none other than DIAMOND BLACK, the brand new band founded by Ben Christo (Sisters Of Mercy)! Check out their fantastic new single here:“Crushing riffs, mesmerizing electronica & cinematic choruses, telling tales of desire, decadence & devotion” - sounds just about right. These will be some truly magical nights - we can’t wait to rock out with you all!

We're In The Studio

With the start of the new year, we have officially begun recording our very first album at Tommy Vetterli's New Sound Studio. Creativity is flowing, spirits are high, and we could not be happier with the results so far! We cannot wait to share this with you. The album will be out this summer on Nuclear Blast records.

In the meantime, we’ll keep you up to date right here, and on:

New T-Shirt: 'Black Moon'


Yet another beautiful design created by Costin Chioreanu! This time, we asked Costin to listen to the song and let his art be inspired by the lyrics, without any guidance from us. We absolutely love the result!
The front of the shirt features Costin's artwork, and on the back you'll find a lyric excerpt from the song:

"To the end
To the moon
We will be swept away
It's the end"

Available in all sizes from Small to 3X-Large - ships worldwide! Thank you for your support!


We would like to thank all those of you who came to rock out with us in beautiful Russia and on our an awesome, sold-out run with Delain - we had incredible shows in Arkhangelsk, Moscow, Samara, Krasnodar, St. Petersburg, Paris, Pratteln, Bochum, Munich, Utrecht and London!

OUT NOW: The Official Video for Six Days

It‘s the sixth of November. A good day to present you with the video to our song „Six Days“, a dark and abstract story about the last man left on earth. We‘ve always wanted this special song to have a visual representation and we knew immediately that if we ever could realise the project the man for it would be our favourite artist Costin Chioreanu

Without any guidelines he has managed to capture the atmosphere perfectly, the video really shows what was inside Anna’s head when she wrote the lyrics and recorded the first demo in the middle of the night. When we further worked on this song we realised once more that we are not really bound to one style of music and that we have the freedom to expand our horizon even more - that‘s why this song will always have a special meaning to us. We hope you love it as much as we do!
