Irish blackened folk metalers Celtachor have revealed the title and artwork for their upcoming second album: Nuada Of The Silver Arm. Recorded in Sept/Oct 2014 at Sun Studios in Dublin with Ola Ersfjord and mastered by Chris Common, it will be their first release on German label Trollzorn. The release will be out on April 24th!
The concept for the second album deals with the Life and Death of the High King Nuada, the arrival of the Tuatha Dé Danann to Ireland and the first and second battles of Magh Tuiread. The artwork was once again painted by the band's drummer Anais Chareyre, it depicts Nuada, the king, and his people staring into the Fires of Teamhair at the creation of the Silver Arm, near his great hall at Tara. In the flame's the faces of Fódhla, Banba and Ériu looking over the creation of the arm. The Kingship returning to Nuada.
The band have been working hard since 2010 melding the influences of black, doom, folk metal into one unified force. Inspired by Irish Mythology and its sagas, Celtachor hope to cover new ground in 2015 and spread their message to Europe and beyond, reciting the ancient tales of Ireland in their own voice and way.
