Beithíoch: New album news and preview track

ghosts-of-a-world-long-forgotten-cover-full-size

News from Irish Black Metal act Beithíoch:

 

“The new Beithíoch album will be titled Ghosts of a World Long Forgotten. Musically, the album is darker and more straight-forwardly black metal than last year’s release, Conquest – integrating more melodic leads and ambient parts into shorter songs, but a more cohesive overall experience.

To whet your appetite, listen here to the title track from the new album.”

 

Beithíoch – Aisling Dhorcha re-released on CD

Beithíoch in conjunction with record label Aurora Australis has re-released the 2008 debut album Aisling Dhorcha. A monument of Irish black metal, Aisling Dhorcha also marked the first time a metal album was written entirely in the Irish language.

Stream and purchase the album here.

Cryosyncopy : New album Culmination 3 out now

Crtyosyncopy - Culmination 3: The Dark Path

Cryosyncopy is back with a new album to round out the year for HI ARC TOW. Culmination 3: The Dark Path takes the electro-industrial/ambient style of Culmination 1 & 2 further into the realms of neoclassical, literary inspired music.

Imbued with a foreboding, gothic horror sensibility throughout, Culmination 3 should appeal to lovers of metal/electronic crossover works such as Beherit’s Electric Doom Synthesis or Summoning.

The album can be streamed in its entirety below or downloaded for free from HI ARC TOW here.

Beithíoch : New album Conquest out now

conquest-cd-booklet3 small

 

Here it is at last: the new Beithíoch album Conquest. Available to stream in full for free as well as purchase in both CD and digital formats from beithioch.bandcamp.com

Conquest draws on historical stories of massacre, battle and rebellion – combining the muscle of early Amorphis with the compositional sensibilities of Burzum in an album exploring the savagery inherent to human nature.

Beithíoch hails from the northwest of Ireland with a name that translates from Irish as ‘Beast’. Shrouded in deliberate obscurity, Beithíoch has developed from the ambient black metal sound of debut album Aisling Dhorcha into a black/death/doom metal crossover emphasising atmosphere, power and a sense of musical journey.

Beithíoch – Conquest : released late October via HI ARC TOW

Later this month HI ARC TOW will be releasing the new Beithíoch album Conquest as a limited run of CDs and digital stream/download.

Hailing from the northwest of Ireland with a name that translates from Irish as ‘Beast’, Beithíoch has developed from the ambient black metal sound of 2008 debut Aisling Dhorcha into an idiosyncratic black/doom/death metal hybrid – combining the power of early Amorphis with the compositional sensibilities of Burzum.

Check back here for more info soon.

Beithíoch releases new track + new album details

Irish black/death metallers Beithíoch have released details of their upcoming album, to be titled Conquest.

Expect an even mix of atmosphere and power; death, black and doom metal rolled into one package (with a few ambient tracks thrown in for good measure). Overall, think somewhere between the first two Burzum albums and Amorphis’ The Karelian Isthmus.

This will be by far the strongest Beithíoch release yet. In all aspects, another level of quality has been carefully worked towards, beyond what any previous material from this project managed.

Taken from Beithíoch.com

Alongside this news, Beithíoch have released the track The Fury of the Sea as a preview of what’s to come.
