about

Congratulations! You have discovered the roots of Gandalf's Fist's music: a retrospective album sampler!

If you want a good idea on what Gandalf's Fist is all about then look no further!

To celebrate our Ten Year anniversary we've put together this compilation to allow everyone to sample our back catalogue for Free! (But Hey - you can leave us a little tip if you like!)

Chronologically. there's one track from every album, including our very first demo from back in 2005!

As an extra treat the first three songs have been remixed, remastered, and in some sections, even re-recorded.... which we've done to thank all our existing fans and supporters out there with some nice fresh versions of our favourite tracks!

Rather than do a traditional "best of", we've picked one song from each record which means something special to us - check out the individual track notes for each song for more details!

Enjoy!

Track Name: The Ballad of Treebeard Transport King (2015 Version)
[Instrumental]
Track Name: The Siren's Kiss (2015 Remix)
You hear her calling
singing out your name
Breath of an angel
driving you insane

Pulling at your heart
singin’ death's sweet song
Temptresses sounds
leading you along

Crushing your sprit
Spinning you a Yarn
You always come back
Just to hear her voice

Echoes on the Wind
to bring You back home
Her sweet voice is Death
Hear the Siren's Song

Wasting all your time
Living on the line
I never thought It'd come to this
Fear the Siren's Kiss

Wasting all your time
Living on the line
I can't believe It's come to this
Fear the Siren's Kiss


Through winds and summer's rain
Spake the song without a name
A shadow in the black
Bring the stormclouds back again

Now echoes on the wind
They bring you back home
Sweet are voices of the Dead
Hear the siren's song

Wasting all your time
Living on the line
I never thought It'd come to this
Fear the Siren's Kiss

Wasting all your time
Living on the line
I can't believe It's come to this
Fear the Siren's Kiss

Wasting all your time
Living on the line
waste away; you waste away
you fear tonight
you fear the siren's kiss
Track Name: The Council of Anderson (2015 Remix)
The silent planet bathes its shores
In moonbeams from the night
As shadow children dream their dreams
To hear their mothers cry
The echo of the solar breeze
Falls soft upon the sands
Walking to the jester’s tune
On this rose across the stars…

The tyrant in his emerald spire
Casts shadows in the night
His fear is brought to waking souls
Who sleep beneath the light
The watchmen of the city wall
Call out the sorcerer’s name
The brave men of the citadel
Fall back against the flame
The council members disappear
To rooms beneath the mire
The courtyard of the cowardly
Hears whispers of the fire
The summoned party pays the price
Death takes them by the hand
He leads them on a merry dance
Across this cursed land…
Track Name: She Dwelt among the Untrodden Ways
She dwelt among the untrodden ways
Beside the springs of Dove,
A Maid whom there were none to praise
And very few to love

A violet by a mossy stone
Half hidden from the eye!
Fair as a star, when only one
Is shining in the sky.

She lived unknown, and few could know
When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
The difference to me!
Track Name: The Gathering of the Clouds
In the darkest hour will you see the light?
In the highest tower will you fear the night?
The clouds gather round me,
A veil that steals the dawn
Breathing shades devour,
As when I was born
Feel electrocution dance accross the sky,
A stay of execution looks you in the eye
Now you're coming with me to a time before,
Where the dark things gather,
As when I was born

My eyes before me, see the gathering of the clouds.
Where distant thunder sounds keep me awake.
Will you come meet me by the gathering of the clouds?
Where the shadow of the sky takes me away...

Feel the morning tremble,
Feel the coming storm,
Now my sight defies me,
As when I was born.

Oh Take me away...
Oh please take me away.

My eyes before me, see the gathering of the clouds.
Where distant thunder sounds keep me awake.
Will you come meet me by the gathering of the clouds?
Where the shadow of the sky takes me away...
Track Name: Stowaway to the Mushroom Planet
Tell no lies, don’t tell the truth
Realise you’re going through
All these lightyears away
Time has lost its grip on you
Now what are you gonna do
As you fall through the maze

Do you fear it all?
Do you fear it all?
Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you?

Life is just a cosmic dream,
Turn around you know you’ve been
Chasing ghosts in the shade
One last breath before you sleep
In the sky you fall beneath
Now you’re slipping away

Do you fear it all?
Do you fear it all?
Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you?

Never-ending space, never-ending time
Never-ending space, all you see is your mind

Do you fear it all?
Do you fear it all?
Do you fear it all as the night surrounds you?
Track Name: Gardens of the Lost
Beyond the lights of border kings
There hangs a gate of mystery
You’ve seen it hanging there before
Locked tight each night with ivy crawl

Listen Child please step inside
The forest gate is open wide
Behind the leaves the trees unfurl
A secret key a hidden door...

An old figure standing in your way
Dressed in smoke, he begs for you to stay
You run, the gate slams, and crumbles into dust
Welcome home… to the gardens of the lost

Don’t leave the path the whispers scream
Don’t leave the path the forest breathes
You thought that you wanted to see inside
But now there's doubts running through your mind

Figures passing through the trees
In jesters rags the poet dreams
The lights that are leading you from the road
Are fires that are taking you far from home

Never-ending Fantasy
You’re running in the night
Living in a fairy-tale
You’re running in the night… again

Wished it once, you wished it twice
You play the game you pay the price
Each step that you take is not your own
Now eyes from the path begin to glow

Alas poor world I knew it well,
Is all bygone to this new hell
A wayward nature plays its cruel game
You feel so lost you feel ashamed

never-ending fantasy
You’re running in the night
Living in a fairy-tale
You’re running in the night
Living in a fairy tale of pain
Running in the night
Fairy-tale of pain
Running in the night
