FUIL NA SEANCHOILLE "Fuil Na Seanchoille" CD
Tour de Garde
An over 40 minute journey through the demo years of Irish raw black metal entity Fuil Na Seanchoille (“Blood of The Old Forest” in Gaelic), this CD collects the long out-of-print “Bitter Dusk of Futures Past”  and “Demo MMVIII” (2008) cassettes, subsequently reissued on vinyl by Me Saco En Ojo in 2012. Remastered for Tour de Garde in 2019 by Jack Control at Enormous Door, these early emanations demonstrate a range of influences from Von, Beherit and Ulver to Darkthrone and pre "Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice." Deathspell Omega. Inspired by the history of Ireland from 12th Century B.C. until 1580 A.D., shamanic rage collides with hulking evil, channelled through a cavernous assault of primitive darkness. By turns darkly ambient and doom-laden, the sound veers from threateningly wild chaos to menacingly measured assault. Timeless black metal in the old-school tradition.
