Drachenfeuer is epic Tolkien ambient / cinematic dungeon synth, founded by Jim Kirkwood and Alexander Wieser back in 2007. Both artists have been writing music since the 80’s from black metal to Gothic, ambient and more… Drachenfeuer have released 2 tracks on both volumes of the mighty “The First Ring” compilation so far (2007 & 2013) and in 2009 they recorded their debut album “Realm of Light”. 7 years it was lost in the vaults, until Dark Age Productions picked it up for a limited edition release. As Jim Kirkwood released 80+ albums since the 80’s under his very own name, Alexander Wieser worked in several projects like Uruk-Hai, Hrossharsgrani, Eismond, Solid Grey, Hrefnesholt, Elisabetha, Manwe. The music of Drachenfeuer is an epic journey through Middle Earth and its creatures. If you have never listened to Uruk-Hai or Jim Kirkwood before, then expect to listen to epic fantasy ambient music, soundscapes that will transport you to a land where dragons breath fire, where warrior legions raise their swords, where the beauty of friendship comes to a dark edge and where mighty forests cover the land in darkness… The album was recorded at W.A.R. studios in Austria and at Sleepy Rabbit Studios in England, mastered by Jim Kirkwood.
