Despotz Records have announced that they have signed a deal with legendary Celtic folk metal act, Cruachan. The band will be working to release some upcoming material for the new year, including their ninth studio album.
The band spoke about the new signing by saying:
We are delighted to have signed with Despotz and look forward to starting the next chapter of Cruachans journey with them. We chose Despotz based on their proven track record and their professionalism. Here’s to 2020! Sláinte!’
Cruachan are now currently aboard 70000 Tons of Metal, where they will be playing a special Irish pub session.
“With their roots in Dublin, Ireland, the folk metal band Cruachan have staggered their melodic Celtic inspired metal all over the world since 1992. The band is pioneers in the folk metal genre and is recognized as one of the founders of their genre, the band has arguably gone the furthest of all in their attempts to expand this still largely unexplored subgenre. With a brutal but yet delicate mix of traditional Celtic music, pure metal and the use of Celtic mythology in their lyrics, the band has built a large and dedicated fanbase all over the world.
We’re happy and proud to finally announce that we’ll be working with Cruachan and their upcoming material that will be released in 2020. The band is true pioneers in the folk metal genre and we’re looking forward to collaborate with joined forces of experience, impact and our genuine passion of metal music to take part in Cruachan’s journey. // Ömer Akay, Despotz Records
The band has released eight albums and will be releasing their ninth album via Despotz Records in 2020.”
