Cnoc An Tursa (Celtic tinged Black Metal)



from the myspace
"Cnoc An Tursa (Hill of Sorrow) are a Scottish metal Band forged in 2006 in Falkirk, an ancient Borough whose Motto is:
‘Better Meddle wi the Deil than the Bairns O’ Falkirk’.

Intense, symphonic ballads combined with the tales of a much neglected art form, old Scottish poems, creates a totally unrivaled sound of heavy Scottish metal, with ravenous, melodic undertones, and ancient, rhythmical lyrics"

Not your typical black metal but I would say its the genre it falls closest into. I think they are really good, and surprisingly catchy as well, both in melodies and lyrics. They have a few demo tracks out at the moment, that I think were just given away on the myspcae, if you know where to look.

Their debut album is due out soon on Lone Vigil records.

*note: on last.fm and metal archives and a few other sites its written Cnocantursa. One of the free downloads the band gave away had it tagged as that, so thats how I have them in my Itunes. But technically it should be 3 words.

Saw these guys live not long ago, they put on a great show. Really good stuff - symphonic/folky black metal for people who don't usually like symphonic/folky black metal, like me.
One of the better Scottish black metal bands, good to see the scene is on the rise.

The ironic (for want of a better word) thing is, it was originally due before Christmas

Ah, I saw these guys support Wodensthrone and Winterfylleth a while back. Put on a really good show.

A nice reminder for me to check out their stuff.

They have 8 tracks that have been available at some point or other. There was a scottish black metal blog that they were uploaded to, but that's since gone. Check your inbox in about half an hours time
edit: I can't be faffed waiting sitting waiting. I'm going away from the PC but leaving it uploading. So it might be a bit longer than half an hour.

You should hook me up too, Neil.

This stuff reminds me of Sacramentum, but more folky. Therefore, it is great.

So the album just, out already I guess. I'm so used to listening to the demos the more embellished production sounds a little weird to me

Sounds awesome though.

Don't usually get into folky metal, but this is quite good.

Havent listened to the album yet, but I enjoy the demos you gave me, Neil. I will say from the tracks I've heard, the album sounds... good, but the vocals sound too high in the mix. Minor detail though I think it will be fine.

Also most folksy metal is dull or just metal/rock dressed up with folk trappings. But it's good when it's just subtle/well integrated for more than just aesthetics and catchiness. Say, like Moonsorrow, this band, Wodensthrone, etc.
