The third album, “Godheim” was released in 2018, receiving acclaim from both critics and fans. The band’s 4th album, “The Lesser Key” was released on March 31, 2023 and is available to stream or purchase on all major platforms. The band’s focus continues to be connecting with their fans on a deep level by telling stories through music.”

Ghol then launches into a fast paced sequence that acts as a jolt to the heart before returning to the steady deliberation where it began.
