Cruachan Finish Fourth Album

Irish folk metal band Cruachan have completed work on their fourth full-length album, entitled "Pagan".

"Pagan" was recorded and mixed at Radio Na Life Studios in Dublin, Ireland with producer Al Cowen and is the follow-up to last year's "Folk-Lore".

The band recorded a total of 15 songs, of which 13 will end up on the final album and the remaining songs will be used as bonus-material.

Commented band spokesperson Keith Fay (vocals, guitars, keyboards): "The songs on our new album are certainly the best that I have written, they vary from gritty, intense pagan metal, such as on the title track 'Pagan' to mellow, atmospheric ballads such as 'The Gael' which continues the story of 'Death of a Gael'. The sound on the album is very raw when compared to 'FolkLore' or 'The Middle Kingdom', some early reviews have likened the feel of the album to that of 'Tuatha na Gael'."

Cover artwork for "Pagan" was created by John Howe, the leading JRR Tolkien illustrator and the conceptual artist from "The Lord of the Rings" movies.
