Darkest Era - Gods & Origins 7"

Celtic metal band  DARKEST ERA are set to release a new vinyl 7" entitled Gods and Origins November 20 on Cruz Del Sur Music. Recorded between the studio session for Severance and Spring 2015,Gods and Origins is an insightful representation of the group's decade-long existence.

Gods and Origins will be released  in a Limited Edition (150) Swamp Green and Regular Black vinyl. Pre-orders will be available Oct 31 through Cruz Del Sur Music and the band's website.

The EP features new song "Elohim" and a re-recording of an early gem called "An Dagda Awakens" (renamed "An Dagda" for the 7").

Guitarist Ade Mulgrew had this to say about the re-recording of "An Dagda Awakens:"

"Since it's almost 10 years since myself and Sarah started playing guitar together, we decided to revisit one of the first songs we wrote, 'An Dagda Awakens'.  Written with the fiery energy (and perhaps naivety) of teenage metalheads making their first steps on their journey, we have breathed smoke and ashes into this old song and brought it screaming into the darkness."

Track Listing:

Side A: An Dagda
Side B: Elohim
 

"Darkest Era is the most unique and adventurous metal band come out of Ireland since Primordial." - Dead Rhetoric
 

BIO
DARKEST ERA has developed a fresh Celtic Metal sound by fusing the twin guitar driven old school heavy metal styles of Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden with a signature dark and melancholic atmosphere.

The band's journey began in 2005 around the nucleus of teenage school friends Ade Mulgrew, Sarah Wieghell and vocalist Krum. The group recorded a demo under the name 'Nemesis' while still at school in mid 2006. A collection of raw, epic and twin guitar driven songs, it began to bring the young band to the attention of the European metal underground.
The group's fledgling sound continued to evolve quickly and in 2007 'Darkest Era' was born. The new name was felt to be more in keeping with the darker and more epic sound that the band's music had began to take on.

Two EP's and European festival appearances preceded the release of debut album The Last Caress of Light on Metal Blade records in early 2011 to a strong reaction from fans and press across Europe and North America.  It was included in a number that year's best album lists and was seen to stand out for its epic power and emotional honesty.  UK and European tours followed with bands during 2012 and 2013 helping to establish the band's unique dark, epic heavy metal sound.

In 2014 the band's eagerly awaited second album Severance was released via Cruz Del Sur Records. Showcasing a newfound darkness and aggression, the critical reaction surpassed that of their debut. The album again captured accolades from fans and press across Europe and the US, and claimed the 'Album of the Year' title on a number of online publications.
