The Holly King | EP by DATA_WOLF
The music for The Holly King was inspired by the folklore tale of The Oak King and The Holly King – and the battle between the two on the Winter Solstice.
The Holly King is seen by some Neopagans as a forebear of the Father Christmas legend or fact, depending upon your beliefs.
During the warm, sunny days of Midsummer the Oak King is at the height of his strength. The Holly King regains his power at the Autumn equinox, then his strength peaks during Midwinter at which point the Oak King is reborn, regaining power at the Spring equinox, perpetuating the succession.
