MRCD7 is a little different than previous ones, in that I have gathered tracks with two distinct moods - dark and moody and light and breezy. So the music of this set is split into the two discs. CD1 - Darkness: My War / CD2 - Light: When You Believe.
Forces Of Dark & Light will be priced at $18 + $5 international shipping and is officially released September 17, with pre-orders shipping by September 10. Pre-orders available now. All artwork is from the super talented Richard Mace. Without further ado, please sample the music of Forces Of Dark & Light -
