Dark Moor has uploaded three audio samples from their upcoming album Ancestral Romance scheduled for release in November. The audio samples are of the first three songs off that record and you can listen to them at the band's MySpace page.

The theme of Ancestral Romance revolves around Spain's culture and history, as is well established in pieces like "Oh Wretched me! ", based on the "Life is a Dream" by Calderon de la Barca , "Tilt at Windmills" based on Don Quixote, "Mio Cid " inspired by the legend of the Spanish hero El Cid, "Alaric de Marnac", an adaptation of Paul Naschy's latest book of the same title, "Love from Stone" which tells of the legend of the lovers of Teruel, "Gadir" inspired by the first city founded in Europe: Cádiz, or "Ritual Fire Dance", adaptation of "Danza del Fuego" by Manuel de Falla, Spanish composer.

All lyrics have been written by the Spanish poet Francisco José García, the band's usual collaborator. The album also features Dark Moor's first song in Spanish, "La Canción del Pirata", where the band has put music to the famous poem by Espronceda.

You can find all album details again here.

These are not bad. I hope the rest of the album will be as good as these samples look like.

Yes... their best album is "The Gates Of Oblivion", awesome.

Amazing as always, and I like the fact that the production is a lot more fat than on autumnal.

Can't wait. Autumnal was such an amazing album!

I'm curious about that new La Canción del Pirata version, being so used to that Tierra Santa adaptation.
