MetalGate Records just released the second studio album from Czech Republic folk metal band Cruadalach, titled "Rebel Against Me."
“The main goal was absolute authenticity. I am very much aware that if we played a harder folk-rock with Czech lyrics about Celtic gods, it would have some commercial potential, but, pardon the expression, fuck that,” says band vocalist Jan Vrobel in an interview for the February issue of Spark Magazine, meaning that the second Cruadalach album can surprise one with serious and contemporary themes that are utterly devoid of any genre cliché.
The “Rebel Against Me” album was ceremonially christened by Milan Trachta, veteran of the Czech hardcore punk scene and vocalist of the band Hanba, in the Prague-based Jamm Club, where the Tribe also revealed a new music video for the song "Life-Worshipping Bastards." The video is now available online and can be seen below. More...

Only a handful of days away from the actual event itself, the Heidenwahn Festival has officially been canceled. The fest was to take place on March 9th and featured bands such as Draugr, Cruadalach, Minas Morgul, Heimdalls Wacht, and more.
Cruadalach has posted the following message online about the cancellation being caused by accusations of National Socialist bands appearing on the bill:
"We have very bad news for you and Austrian metal scene. Their 'rightful fighters' from Antifa striked again, have (probably randomly) accused 4 bands from Heidenwahn Festival´s line up from being NS, contacted club owners and media and reached their dirty goal: Heidenwahn had to be cancelled less then 14 days prior the event itself.
"We are very sorry for those poor people who can not find better time spending (pray for them to discover world of computer games, where they could not really insult anyone). They unfortunately have found their ideal victims, who they can insult without punishment. No way to defend yourself, no idea who is behind these actions.
"We wish the Heidenwahn organizers all the best and hope that the situation in Austria will go better by time."
