Mael_Mordha-Cluain_Tarbh-Reissue-2008-GRAVEWISH


This is a Reissue I really enjoy posting about. I never could get my hands on this record, because the import costs where way out of a fair amount. I only know their newer piece of art 'Gealtacht Mael Mórdha' from 2007. However, Cluain Tarbh was originally released 2005. Mael Mordha also released a split ep with Primordial, which they eventually could be compared with, albeit Mael Mordha play Celtic Doom/Death instead of Celtic/Folk/Black.
From MetalArchives:
"Cluain Tarbh is about the lead up and aftermath of that most famous of battles
fought at Cluain Tarbh - Clontarf (Meadow of Bulls) on Good Friday 1014 between
the then high king of Éire, Brian Boru and the king of Leinster, Mael Mórdha."

Whitechapel-This_Is_Exile-(Advance)-2008-FNT

Some Deathcore, dunno if this is good, however, the name 'Whitechapel' comes from the English city of Whitechapel, the location of the Jack the Ripper murders. And ye, no more Candlelight for these guys, it's Metalblade now. Oh, and FNT Fixed Track No. 1, so for the whole package, get the Trackfix, too.
