Scáth Na Déithe Release New LP The Dirge of Endless Mourning

The stories of old Ireland have suffered throughout their long lives. Often misrepresented or misunderstood, the truth often lies not far beneath the murk that hides it.

“The Dirge of Endless Mourning” explores this relationship between the shallow, often twisted portrayal of Irish folklore and the true inspiration behind the tales through figures such as Biddy Early, a wise woman and healer, continually denounced and ostracized by the local clergy as an associate of evil. The forlorn and sorrowful Bean Sídhe, a cursed soul doomed to mourn eternally, widely regarded as a figured to be feared, not pitied. An Cailleach Béara, forgotten by time and people, a once great deity reduced to squalor and despair.

We live in the shadow of these tales, may they come tearing through the pages.

Scáth Na Déithe are, Cathal Hughes also of Aeternum Vale and Nautilus.
The man is a serious talent and has outdone himself here with this release. It’s an excellent black metal release and will be without doubt one of the best releases in this genre this year!
