It's time to unveil the artwork of our upcoming debut album, 'This Is The Sound'! The mesmerising cover art was created by Christopher Ruef (SAROS Collective, graphic design) & Manuel Vargas Lépiz (Manvarle, photography). The figure of the cover lures you into our world of stories and eclectic music; it’s a preview of the remaining artwork, where each song has its own visual representation and symbol:
While we're at it, check out the full tracklist of the album - 14 original songs amounting to a full hour of music. As if that’s not enough, the mediabook edition will feature 3 bonus tracks! Each of us three chose a cover song to interpret in our own style: 'The Cold Song’ from Henry Purcell’s “King Arthur” opera, chosen by Anna, Tears for Fears’ 'Mad World’, chosen by Ivo and the epic Queen classic 'The Prophet’s Song’ - One of Merlin's all-time favourites. Also included in the mediabook will be an alternative and limited cover artwork plus an extended 32-page booklet, filled with the our notes on the stories behind our songs.

02. Black Moon
05. Six Days
06. The Hermit
