Some would call "Serundal" a Soft Progressive Rock band while others might call them a Medieval Celtic Folk band...but one thing is for sure, there is no denying how great "Serundal"s music is. Have a listen to "The Foreshadowing". Great music is something we can all relate to in our lives....added to the Best of 2014 Soft Rock & Folk + the main Progressive Rock Playlist for the years 2000 to 2015.

Product Reviews for Dark Days White Knights
5 stars 5 out of 5 stars
Stunning arrangements beautiful vocals/lyrics
I was introduced to Serundal when a friend bought me 'Leylines' for Christmas and I have been hooked ever since. I love Celtic music anyway, but sometimes struggle to find original music with vocals as most traditional tends to be instrumental, or 'drinking songs'. In my opinion Serundal surpasses Clannad for their range of themes, lyrical ability and truly haunting vocals. There is something truly magical about them and every album is different. For those who love Arthurian legend, storytelling and who love to be taken away into a forgotten lost world, this album does it all. Mystical, magical and mind-blowing.

Lady of the Isles (Semi-finalist in the 2009 UK Songwriting Contest)
A beautiful crusading lover's ballad ... lilting, cantillating and monastic-like vocals calling back and forth gives this a mediaeval and romantic feeling that whisks one away on a magical, mystical journey, back to a place in legendary times where a grieving damsel awaits the return of her lover from a distant campaign ... a celtic gem ... poignant songwriting, arrangement and production. added to station 10/19/2008 5:33:18 AM
