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
When you enter the blue hell, you are frozen, unable to get out. That ability that this album has to catch you and not let you go is what I applaud the most about this band. One more life experience, but an ordinary experience, an atmospheric and depressing journey, difficult to forget. Frank Román
DSBM at its finest. Oddly calming despite the emotional bleakness of it all; it reminds me of Coldworld’s “Melancholie2” in this respect, though it’s a somewhat harsher and bleaker album than that one. The third track, in particular, is a masterpiece. verdantglade
Such a beautiful and melodic album, heaps of melody and blackgazing elements all around. If you listen closely, you can hear how the guitar melodies and ambiance set the tone for the album and as the album gets into its stride, its so so so great. Piper Haqim
