Geasa are an amazing folky black metal band (leaning more to black metal, though there's obviously some progression) from Ireland.

They're a must hear band for fans of music like Primordial (they even have the same drummer).

The album artwork for their debut was done by famous Spanish artist, Luis Royo.

I'll check them out if you check out my March of Chronos thread . Although, I'll do it later on today because it is 5:30 in the morning where I live, and I'm getting a bit tired.

Where were you born second?

Anyway, Geasa are from the same city as me. I was probably born in the same hospital as them!

Excellent, excellent band. Starside is one of the greatest Irish demos. Apparently theyre back gigging again, they played in Kilkenny last week at the Graveyard Dirt gig.

I CRAWL.......INTO THE SUN!!

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Yeah Phill, they have an excellent gig section there...

Its a great site, a lot more discussion about extreme metal than there is here, mainly war/black/thrash metal, but they love their doom too.

Aye sure theres plenty of that too.. Have you heard Darkest Era? They rely on Primordial-isms a lot, but they are great.

I really dig it. It feels they actually tried writing songs rather than slapping riffs together.
Don't be derivative. Explore...

It was ****ing epic! Too bad nobody really cheered for Tyr even though they kicked major ass, but everyone was really just there for Turisas and Ensiferum. Tyr was amazing though, I shook Heri hands, and took a picture with Terji, and Anna from Eluveite! Twas great, and don't worry, I'm pretty sure they're going to do Paganfest Two!

One of the songs has a strange blues-style riff.. I dont mind blues but it just sounds terrible in Geasa's music. Oh well. Might mean theyl start touring again though.

Bump, as nostalgia is taking me for a long ride tonight.....'Warrior' remains the best song ever written from an Irish metal band.
