In pre-Christian Ireland, the Óenach were public gatherings brought about by catastrophe, death or reverence of the ancestors. The semi-mythological origins of the Óenach at Tailten refer to ancient rites occurring from the depths of pre-history until the end of the dark ages.
Over three movements, Úir explores significant manifestations which set in motion changes that remain apparent to this day. A retrospective offering of deceit, perception and confrontation.
Óenach Tailten was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Sonorous Studio.
"It is, however, a short 3 act structured piece of just 3 tracks. It is almost perfectly delivered as a taster of their sound. Presented here on a platter of intense and icy drumming and ghostly bass tones mist that simmers in the air like fog. They put the “A” into atmosphere with top marks! I would love to see what they can do with longer time/tracks and given more room on a full length. Compared with the earlier material this is much sharper mixed record while keeping all the right kinds of fuzz and texture, it’s a grand job"

It's hard to find a Doom band I actually like, but I've been supporting Altars of Grief since 2014 and it doesn't disappoint! Riffing + good voice + keyboards giving that symphonic touch is all I need! Noel Soler
