“Siege… – Samhain 2014″… more surprise announcements!

via Irish Metal Archive...

Well now! The good folks over at Bad Reputation are really pulling out all the stops with two rather surprising and very unexpected additions to the upcoming metal pilgrimage to LimROCK city!

On top of the eight killer acts previously announced to date. They have just landed a couple of rather unexpected bombshells. Firstly! Legendary Limerick Death Metallers, and IMA favourites, THE SWARM will be re-uniting for a one-off performance and their first on about seven years. You can check out both of the bands releases right here on the Irish Metal Archive… "Bruise The Flesh To Black" and "Six Acts Of Atrocity".

Also announced just last night…!!!

The mighty MAEL MÓRDHA are set to return to the fray. The departure of founding member Roibéard Ó Bogail earlier this year left a rather big question mark over the bands future. But the three remaining members made the decision to carry on and are now set to make their first live appearance with their new vocalist at the Samhain 2014 installment of the Siege. No official announcement has been made yet as to who this new recruit is. But Dave Murphy has ensured me that an official reveal will be made very soon. So stay posted for more on that when the time comes.

Latest ‘Siege…’ announcements

via Irish Metal Archive...

Dublin based Black/Death Metal outfit MALTHUSIAN. who have made quite an impression on the local Underground Scene. Not surprising really considering that all of the bands members have been and are currently in some of the countries best metal acts. MOURNING BELOVETH, DECAYOR, WRECK OF THE HESPERUS, ABADDON INCARNATE, SODB, ALTAR OF PLAGUES, ON PAIN OF DEATH… and more!

Psychedelic Doom from the foot of the Dublin mountains and the brain-child of Sie Carroll who self-recorded the debut 'Demo 2012′. A full gigging line-up has been assembled with Sie being joined by former UTOPIAN RUINS and PETROCHENICAL ACCELERATOR bassist Seán O'Connor and Fearghal Ó Maoil Eoin on drums.

Originally a Death Metal band back in the late 90′s and early 00′s. The band evolved over time into it's current Technical/Progressive style that is literally worlds away from their earlier style.

DÚNMHARÚ – “The Light”

DÚNMHARÚ have been plugging away quietly in the background since for a few years now with the first two albums, 'October' and 'Cursus Come Home', surfacing in early 2012. Very much Black Metal albums the bands development between the two is quite obvious with the first being raw and traditional Black Metal sounding as opposed to the cleaner, more melodic elements being incorporated in the latter. Their next single 'Of Yew Trees' displays an even more drastic departure and is a very subdued and atmospheric track with almost Post Black Metal tones throughout. Yet this only hints at the direction the band were heading in for their next full-length 'Frozen Eden' which was released at the very end of 2013. 

Which leads us to the bands latest effort, and as far as I can tell their only proper physical release, 'The Light'. Without a doubt this is easily the bands best work to date...

The return of CELTIC LEGACY…

Back in 2008, CELTIC LEGACY pretty much just fell apart. They were struggling to survive financially and the bands two founding members had a rather public, and at times rather petty, falling out with Dave Boylan eventually threatening to continue his own 'KELTIC LEGACY' version of the band.

As of 2014...!!! Dave Morrissey has decided to take up the mantle once more and has retained the bands original name and the bands most recent vocalist Ciaran Ennis (MIRRORS OF OBSIDIAN).

The first new music from CELTIC LEGACY since 2008 will be released on August 4 2014. This digital single called 'My People' will be available to buy as a digital download and you can pre-order here.

Bet you didn't see THAT coming just a few days ago eh?
