Reliving Ireland’s tales and myths is intertwined with the story of Irish heavy metal.
Sirocco, from Co. Cork, are a band that know how to do it with skill and class.Their new album, ‘Lambay’, tells the stories of the Viking invasions to Ireland – and it does it with some seriously epic heavy metal.
What impresses me most about this album is the restraint. Everything on here has been thought about and crafted.
The band have offered this stream of the new album for you all to hear, hoping that you can buy either the digital or hard copy of their new work. These streaming tracks fade out a bit early at the ends. Naturally, the real thing carries on in full epic metal glory.
Of all these tracks I reckon ‘Maelsuthain’ is the best. It sums up much of what’s great about their song writing. Memorable, stirring and swaying – it’s evocative of olden times.
Give Sirocco your support. Pick up either the digital download or the hard copy. No matter which, you’re bagging a quality Irish metal release that will sustain you through the autumn and winter of 2012 brilliantly. And, no doubt, beyond!
