The Shadow of The Tower (demo excerpt)

This is a demo/excerpt of a work in progress. The current title is "The Shadow of The Tower", and an 8 minute excerpt was streamed at the Northeast Dungeon Siege Festival on April 3rd.

This will be a longer piece, and is planned to be part of a future album slowly being put together inside the time and space allowed within my reality.
