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.
