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
A truly excellent release from Saor. His most ambitious and best album to date. The folk and non traditional metal instrument use blend very well with the more classic black metal sounds. Outstanding atmosphere. Magical stuff here. 9/10 RJ
