The new album from Irish black metallers Beithíoch, is available now – complete and free – from hiarctow.com. “Dúchas” translates roughly to “instinct”, or “that which is native”, and is inspired by the glacier-torn landscape of Ireland’s north.

stylistically this album throws up a few surprises: much of it moves away from the droney, minimalist style of the debut album (and subsequent EP) towards a sound that has more melodic intricacies and more subtleties in the arrangements. At times this album flirts with an old school doom/death sound whilst at other moments hearkens more to early Gorgoroth, Ancient or Immortal. More importantly though, this album is a serious challenge to the staleness and mediocrity of modern metal.
