When we reviewed their second album, Myths And Muses , we described it as “Mesmerizing and completely arresting world-folk — performed with zeal and passion

Now they have released a lyric video for “Helen Of Troy”, their first of a series of videos from their upcoming album “The Serpent’s Kiss”.

Vocalist Maggie-Beth Sands said this of the track: “This song is based on the Greek legend. Helen, daughter of Leda, Queen of the Spartans, was seduced and taken to the city of Troy by its Prince Paris. Menelaus, the Spartan King, took his fleet of a thousand ships to Troy to rescue her, and thus embarked on the Trojan War. He and his troops eventually entered the city hidden in the Trojan horse, rescued Helen and took her back to Sparta.
