The release of Cnoc An Tursa’s debut album is scheduled for February 25th. Members include Bryan on drums, who joined Barshasketh in 2012.
Cnoc An Tursa are a Scottish Metal Band forged in Falkirk 2006 by Alan Buchan an Reni Hill, an ancient Borough whose Motto is: “Better Meddle wi’ the De’il than the Bairns O’ Falkirk”
Cnoc An Tursa create intense, epic ballads combined with the tales of a much neglected art form; old Scottish poetry. Their sound represents a totally unrivaled form of heavy Scottish metal with ravenous melodic undertones and ancient rhythmical lyrics, capturing a sound deeply rooted in ancient heritage; giving a fresh perspective on what Scottish metal has to offer.
The album was recorded at Foel Studios in Wales by acclaimed producer Chris Fielding (Winterfylleth, Napalm Death, Primordial, Electric Wizard) in 2011 then mixed and mastered at Anthropocide studios.
