“Winds of the Sun” is a special EP from Dol Ammad released only in digital form.
The song “Winds of the Sun” is an epic space hymn dedicated to the memory of the great cosmologist Carl Sagan and features the band’s second collaboration with singer DC Cooper (Silent Force, ex-Royal Hunt).
DC Cooper and composer Thanasis Lightbridge had also worked together in the song “Aquatic Majesty” found in Dol Ammad’s second opus “Ocean Dynamics”.
The EP also features the following exclusive tracks:
”Black Winter Day” – A cover version of the classic song by melodic death metal band Amorphis. Thanasis pays a special tribute to this band which influenced his early metal-exploration days.
”Theeta Dominion” – Dol Theeta’s (The second project of Thanasis Lightbridge) special take on a “Thalassa Dominion” Medley.
”Aquatic Majesty (Choral Remix)” – A Choir-only remix of this favourite song from the “Ocean Dynamics” album.
