This album is a huge step up for the band. It is heavier and more progressive, but by no means Estate has lost their calling card – the lyrical and romantic melodism.
“Mirrorland”s very diverse but the songs keep the same vibe and are filled with obscure and mysterious atmosphere.
The album has such strong tunes as “Mirrorland”, “Lady Wind”, “The Ghoul” and a dark medium tempo horror story “Springtime”, plus traditional power metal ballads like “Winter Kingdom” and “Silvery Skies”. There is a special three-act opus that is called “Storm of the Age”. It was written under the influence of works of an American writer, Glen Cook, a founder of the dark fantasy genre.
The recordings began in August 2015 and lasted till May 2017 at the band’s own studio. Mixing and mastering is done by band’s guitarist Peter Filevsky.
First single is “Winter Kingdom” to which an amazing fantasy video has been created.
Currenly a European tour is being booked.
The cover artwork , as well as the one to the first album, is done by a famous artist Leo Hao. Leo is known for his works for such bands as Blind Guardian, Primal Fear, Rage, Iced Earth and many others.
Fawn Reginald is there as a constant mascot.
