Artist: Arð Album Title: Untouched By Fire Label: Prophecy Productions Date of Release: 26 April 2024 It seems to me rather serendipitous to be listening to this album and writing my thoughts about it as I sit on a train from East Anglia to Edinburgh, steadily ploughing up the east coast of the UK through  Continue Reading »
