YOU PEOPLE ARE THE BEST!
Dave Morrissey & Dave Boylan
Celtic Legacy's second album, recorded between June and October 2003 received stellar reviews worldwide since its release.
Again, totally self financed and produced, this album brought Celtic Legacy to the attention of a new wave of fans. The tracks written for this album were a step up from the band's first release and has heightened expectations for a third album (to be released some time in 2006).
In the years between the two albums, Legacy changed members several times and on one occasion the singer even changed gender!! The remaining founder members had, however, been very active on the songwriting front and were convinced they had an album's worth of material that would eclipse what had been recorded on the debut. The line-up that emerged to record the album had great potential and the harder edged material on Resurrection was more suited to the newer members than the first one had been.
When the album was released the reviews that followed surprised the band in their unanimous praise of 'Resurrection'. Every review gave it a stellar write up, and on one U.S. webzine it was voted as the readers album of 2003. Many reviewers admitted to being blown away or taken completely by surprise. The reviews are still coming in 2 years after its release.
The two tracks that are always singled out for attention from this album are 'Resurrection' itself, and 'Emania - Shadows Of Moonlight', both epic tracks. The classic opener, 'Live By The Sword' and celtic belter 'Children Of The Sky' became firm favourites, and the emotive ballad 'When A Stranger Comes' closed the album in fine style.
However, once again history repeated itself less than a year after Resurrection was released when the line-up that recorded it split. Undaunted, the original founder members pressed on with their songwriting for a third album which should see the light of day toward the end of 2006 and it should follow on directly from where Resurrection left off. Recording is due to commence during Summer 2006. See the Celtic Legacy website for updates.
All sales of this album will include a free bonus promotional CD with a specially re-recorded instrumental version of Celtic Legacy.
