David Arkenstone - The Dragon’s Breath
It is always wonderful to hear a song that can capture two separate and distinct tones. The Dragon’s Breath encapsulates both a deep, otherworldly strength of a dragon and the fragility of a breath. Or, if thought of in another sense, it suggests the tragic aftermath of a dragon’s (fire) breath.
This song comes from David Arkenstone’s first Celtic album “The Celtic Book of Days”, which was released in 1998. He was inspired by J.R. Tolkien, whose influence can certainly be heard in this music. I can’t help but picture scenes from the Hobbit as I listen.
