Formed in Co. Waterford in 2003, Sirocco are a blend of thrashy rhythms, beautiful lead guitar melodies, intricate drumming and pounding bass lines, interleaved with plenty of dual guitar harmonies, and old school heavy metal solos. Originally an instrumental band, bass player Ciaran O' Cearuill took on vocal duties in 2007, with his first vocal appearance on the bands second album, The March Through Crimson Frost.

Sirocco have played over 100 shows since their creation, including support spots for MEGADETH, WASP and Exodus, as well as playing many festivals throughout Ireland and Europe. The 4-piece have also toured in over 14 countries including Norway, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Italy and Greece.

Their third album, Lambay is available now, and is a concept album on the Viking invasion of Ireland, with a strong focus on retelling the stories of some of the lesser known characters from the era. 2012 will also see the bands first shows in Belarus, Lithuania, Spain and Malta.
