It’s always an exciting time when Gandalf’s Fist put their warped minds in unison to try and come up with a new story to tell the world, and lo and behold that time has transpired once again! 

Still buzzing from the success of our last record, “A Forest of Fey”, we’ve delved back into recording a brand new conceptual piece over at Fist HQ, which believe it or not, will signal the release of our sixth full length LP: The Clockwork Fable! 

As with our previous project you can follow the progress here on this page where we’ll be providing studio updates to help whet the appetite of even the most hardened progaphobe!
