Ireland’s Cruachan have enjoyed a storied career since they took those tentative first steps back in 1992. As frontman and sole original member Keith Fay elaborates; ‘When
I started writing music as a 13-year-old, I had no idea that I was laying the foundations for what would become a brand-new genre, Folk Metal, or that I was planting the seeds
of what would be one of the longest running Irish metal bands in history. There have been many ups and downs over the last thirty years, band members have come and
gone, record deals have come and gone. We've played some of the biggest metal festivals on the planet, travelled to more countries than most Irish bands would ever dream
possible. And it has all led to this - our ninth album, 'The Living and the Dead'.
