Auld Ridge (UK) – Consanguineous Hymns of Faith and Famine LP
By command of the Hermetic Order of Ytene, this offering from Auld Ridge is a journey through Europes cold and uncompromising past of bloodshed and treachery.
Lyrically inspired by events such as the Albigensian Crusades, the life of English heretic John Oldcastle, the events of the Nibelungenlied as well as the massacre of the Burgundians under the Huns.
Musically, the album combines the folk elements of Auld Ridge with more traditional and melodic Black Metal passages that truly hold within them the essence of the past and an uncompromising rural ferocity that is hard to describe! A masterfully crafted album from start to finish!
