Sail Away to Avalon by Ayreon


"Sail Away to Avalon" is the first single by Ayreon, released on 1995, from their album The Final Experiment. The song combines elements of medieval classical music with heavy metal and folk using instruments such as the harpsichord for the rhythm sections. The lyrics reinforce this theme, telling the tale of a grand adventure to "Avalon" to recover the holy grail. The single is a re-recording of Ayreon's demo EP. All songs from the demo, except "the Accusation" were re-recorded for the single EP and the compilation album, Ayreonauts Only (also not including "Sail Away to Avalon").
