FUIL NA SEANCHOILLE "The Hunger" 12"LP
Me Saco Un Ojo Records
After years spent in the wilderness following 2011's "Hunger", Ireland's Fuil Na Seanchoille ("Blood of The Old Forest" in Gaelic) unveil a half hour dirge of singular oddness. A unique expression of black metal reminiscent of Blazebirth Hall luminaries Forest and Branikald collides with visionary shamanic folk elements akin to Dead Can Dance, meanwhile referencing the raw hypnotic viciousness of Fuil Na Seanchoille's earlier work. At once transcendental and neanderthal, "The Crossing" is a journey from old to new, from animistic to christian, from native to other ...and from life to death.
