Cruising in the Caribbean, hanging out at the pool, slurping ridiculous cocktails while literally TONS of metal are shaking the boat!

Well, I guess there’s still a lot more to come." More...
The new video from Hungarian folk metal outfit Dalriada has arrived. Check out a clip for the title track off "Áldás" below.
"Áldás" was released in September of 2015 by Nail Records and Hammer Music. Vocalist / guitarist Ficzek András comments about the new video and Dalriada’s future plans:
“Our new album was released in September and at the same time entered the MAHASZ charts. During that autumn / winter we recorded our new video as well for the title song 'Áldás'. The crew was Mihaszna Film. They also made our previous video, 'A Dudás.'
"You should see this multi-actor video several times to fully understand. Both concept and design are the work of Nagy Viktor who brought nothing less than wonderful professionalism and creativity to the co-operation.
"We are planning a new video, to be shot this spring for the song 'Moldvageddon.' We are going to use mainly snapshots and short video scenes recorded on tour in 2015. This will be a 'backstage' kind of video. More...
