CRUACHAN are back with a new album to celebrate their 25th anniversary: “Nine Years Of Blood” will be released on 27th April 2018 via Trollzorn!
The eighth full-length of these pioneers of the Folk Metal genre, which was produced by Michael Richards at Trackmix Studios / Dublin, shows the band in top form and offers 12 varied hymns, all of which emanate unspoiled, pure, ancient warrior spirit.
Thundering Heavy Metal, stormy Black Metal attacks and superbly dosed Folk insertions lift the performance of the charismatic Irishmen to melodic, solemn and awe-inspiring heights!
A first track entitled “The Harp, The Lion, The Dragon and The Sword” is available at this location now: https://youtu.be/HwbAkxSMjHQ
