As you've all been such a patient bunch this month, here's another treasure from the Castle archives for you to savour.

This unique VCD set was a surprise gift from Hugin in 2010 and has been much played since it's unexpected arrival. Disc 1 contains a video shot for the 'Beneath The Moon, Beneath The Sun' track that featured on the "A Dark Force Shines Golden" split release (see post of 25 November 2009), whilst the second disc features the same track plus the video for 'Enter Mordor', a song from the "Lothlorien" album (see post of 22 January 2010). Interestingly, the 'Beneath...' track also features as one of the bonus tracks on the "Lothlorien" album, so there's something of a concordance there.

Equally themed, both videos are shot in the deep woods and feature Hugin in various guises in amongst the trees. The 'Enter Mordor' video will be familiar to readers of Honour and Darkness from the self-same titled VCD that was reviewed back on 20 March 2010 and is the same colour video. The 'Beneath...' track is shot in atmospheric black and white, and features a lengthy tramp through what could only be Mirkwood, complete with a ghostly white figure flitting through the trees at opportune moments...

Once again, Nazgul is deeply honoured to have such a friend as Hugin who has gone out of his way to present these two videos in such a stylish package as this, with ominous grey thunderclouds on the front cover and a signed, numbered rear cover overlaying an image of the man himself. Marvellous!
