Isenordal Streams Acoustic EP "Lughnasadh MMXVII"

Seattle dark funeral doom/neofolk collective Isendoral recently issued a limited-edition demo entitled "Lughnasadh MMXVII." Consisting of two consuming tracks, "Lughnasadh MMXVII" is a lamenting, all-acoustic offering that finds the band at their most poignant. Today, the band is streaming the release in full, which you can enjoy in the player below.

" Isendoral's acoustic music explores sonic and emotional terrain similarly intense to that of the metal ensemble, but re-examined through a different lens," issues the band of their latest offering. "Here we find the tradition and instrumentation of folk combined with the darkness of black and doom metal, structured and performed with the precision of chamber music. Isendoral will continue to write, play, and tour their more familiar metal music, but is excited to have the chance to begin to do the same with their folk music as well. To release both metal and folk recordings allows the band to further explore the raw, vulnerable territory in which we are interested."

"Lughnasadh MMXVII," named for the Gaelic festival marking the beginning of the harvest, is a sample of the music that this stripped-down, acoustic version of the band debuted earlier this year at Thirst For Light IV in southern Washington. Isendoral will be releasing a full length acoustic offering soon, and sharing much more music -- both folk and metal -- in the future.
