Fun fact: when I first began planning out and writing songs for The Quest, I thought it would be my first non-metal album and simply have Celtic and Fantasy instruments, sounds, and orchestrations.
But as I continued to write, I quickly found that it was not going to be that album. I didn’t want to force The Quest into any specific box and let it be what it was meant to be.
But that has not deterred me from wanting to create a purely fantasy styled non-metal album!
Other ideas on my mind...
- A Christmas or Winter album (think gothic monks, snow, mountains, and forest creatures...?)
- Another heavier album, like Kings & Queens
