Legend's Ghost is a concept album project by Canadian/American composer/vocalist Cherelle-Renée Childs. Cherelle came up with the idea for Legend's Ghost while singing with the progressive/symphonic metal band Prog-nosys. She was fascinated by the concept albums her bandmates showed her, but was disappointed that few of them had strong female characters. The desire to create a concept album with a central female character, as well as her fascination with the idea of combining classical, metal, and rock elements in the same album led her to develop the storyline for the first Legend's Ghost album. Gatekeepers is a gothic symphonic metal concept album that deals with the question of how and why we create art. Characters' romantic and sexual experiences are used as metaphors for the creative process. It was recorded with guest artists from three different continents and with various musical backgrounds, with each artist adding their unique perspective to the interpretations of their respective roles.
