The Skirl of the Tyne

Summer 2023

The Skirl of the Tyne

The North Tyne rises from Deadwater Fell near the Scottish Border and the South Tyne rises on Alston Moor in Cumbria. They finally merge at Warden Rock to form the River Tyne. Along the banks of this historic river whispered legends of mighty giants, witchcraft, curses and even the mythical Wild Hunt. In more modern times, great machines burrowed deep into the ground to extract the high grade coal to fuel great northern industry and to feed the south with winter fuel.
As the years passed, the cranes fell silent on the docks and the machines ceased digging in the dark places, but the songs and the legends live on in the poems and songs of the north.

Tinanmuðe (Single)

5th July 2023

Tinanmuðe, the second single from the upcoming album,  The Skirl of the Tyne

Tinanmuðe (Tynemouth) is the end of the River Tyne as it joins the North Sea. Pen Bal Crag stands custodian over the mouth of the river and has seen Roman and Viking invaders plus witnessed the rise of industry, wars and collapse of the local economy.

Tynemouth Priory was founded early in the 7th century, perhaps by Edwin of Northumbria. In 651 Oswin, king of Deira was murdered by the soldiers of King Oswiu of Bernicia, and subsequently his body was brought to Tynemouth for burial. He became St Oswin and his burial place became a shrine visited by pilgrims. He was the first of the three kings buried at Tynemouth.

In 792 Osred II, who had been king of Northumbria from 789 to 790 and then deposed, was murdered. He also was buried at Tynemouth Priory. Osred was the second of the three kings buried at Tynemouth. The third king to be buried at Tynemouth was Malcolm III, king of Scotland, who was killed at the Battle of Alnwick in 1093. This is the same Malcolm who appears in Shakespeare's Macbeth.

Herlaþing (Single)

13th February 2023

Herlaþing, the first single from the upcoming album,  The Skirl of the Tyne.

The title, Herlaþing is the Old English name for The Wild Hunt which is present in the folklore of various northern European cultures. Wild Hunts are led by a mythological figure escorted by a ghostly group of hunters engaged in a pursuit. The leader of the hunt is often a named figure such as Odin in Norse legends, Woden in Anglo Saxon legends, but could also be a historical or legendary figure like Theodoric the Great, the Danish king Valdemar Atterdag, the Welsh mythological king Gwyn ap Nudd, or even biblical figures such the Devil.

In Dinenthal's native Northumbria, the local legend speaks of the Wild Hunt appearing Haltwhistle and over Hadrian’s Wall. The single cover features the iconic Sycamore Gap of Hadrian’s Wall.

Equinoctial Gales of the Firth of Lorne

1st May 2022

The West Coast of Scotland, specifically the part of Western Argyll that few have seen and visited is a place of raw and powerful natural beauty. Rich with legends of great and powerful Celtic goddesses, Scandinavian conquests, kings, queens, princes and princesses. A land where the sea meets the sky, the sky meets the land, and time drifts as the great tides roar between islands of splintered rocks. It that kind of place that once it enters your soul, it stays with you throughout eternity. I have seen it, I have breathed its iodine laced air while feeling the sting of the Atlantic rain. I have navigated through the howling masses of water that constitute the tides. I have walked upon the shores of islands that are rarely visited by others. I have dived to the intoxicating depths where nitrogen narcosis affects the mind in terrifying ways that only a few have witnessed. I watched as the giver of life, our sun descended over the mountains of the distant islands, thus setting the sky afire. I stayed, scrying the sickle-shaped welt of our galaxy and Luna’s iridescent glow over the timeless seas. This place isn’t just in my soul, this place is my soul. It was my earliest memory, and it will likely remain until my final memories pass.
