It is a rather cool site, especially the first two pages.  Check it
out.  I went further, and found this list of tracks from their CD, which
is entitled *Hecate*:

1.  Three Witches [3:26]
2.  A Dagger of the Mind [2:21]
3.  Toil and Trouble [4:24]
4.  A Pageant of Eight Kings [4:14]
5.  Lady Macbeth [2:59]
6.  Ripp'd From the Womb [3:02]
7.  Intermission [1:07]
8.  Enter the Ghost [1:38]
9.  The Sleep of Death [1:26]
10. A Politic Worm [2:09]
11. Poor Yorrick [3:03]
12. The Death of Ophelia [5:42]
13. The Poison'd Cup [5:06]
14. Epilogue - A Midsummer Night's Dream [2:02] <<

I am intrigued.  Not intrigued enough to spend actual money on their CD
with only this much information.  But enough to inquire if anyone on the
list has listened to these guys.  Are they really using Shakespearean
material in the lyrics?  Are they any good?

Cheers,
Karen
