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"
Metal Mole Reviews
NONE came into my life right when i needed them and gave me exactly what i needed. Incredibly powerful and awe inspiring, with a palpable wall of emotion that showers over you and through you with every listen. Amazing work of art. Someone put their whole entire soul into this album and it shines through in a brilliant display over the course of every track. With this album in your headphones you can get through anything life throws at you. 10/10 Jeremiah Friel
This band is incredibly refreshing, and innovative in a genre that has become rather stale. Grima transports you to the snow covered wilderness of Russia, and leaves you to fend for yourself. It's not your everyday, run-of-the-mill atmospheric black metal. It's truly something more. Their use of various instruments you seldom hear applied to black metal speaks to their level of creativity. 10/10 album! aliciakay47
