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.

Dark electro-industral project Cryosyncopy returns with a new album for 2013.

Produced by Síol Na Gréine, Culmination syncretises all of Cryosyncopy’s work to date in an album that combines the expansive cinematic feel of their dark ambient tracks and the grimy technological misanthropy of their more beat-centric work.
