Boudicca's Last Stand, the second album from The Wolves of Avalon, is a smouldering echo from a time when there was no England, Scotland or Wales, only the forest clad isles of Britain. A Pagan land of tribal conflict and woad painted warriors, now lost in the corrosive passing of time.
The album deals with one of the great British war leaders, Boudicca, a Queen who stood against the might of Rome shortly after the great druid sanctuary of Ynys Môn was ruthlessly destroyed and the very heart of druid culture wiped from the face of the Earth.
Continuing the bands atmospheric use of flute, mandolin and violins, the band have introduced cello and accordion to enrich the olden age atmospheres further.
The music is more polished and has a more atmospheric Folk underbelly that weaves its lamenting melodies around the tragic ending of Boudicca, the main theme for the album.
