Darkest Era debuts first single "The Morrigan" on InvisibleOranges.com!
The Morrigan, the first single, and opening track from Darkest Era's Metal Blade debut album, The Last Caress Of Light, is now available for streaming on the metal blog, InvisibleOranges.com. Darkest Era's Ade Mulgrew notes why the song was chosen to be the first song released from the album; "The Morrigan is the opening track to the album. It's an energetic song that grabs you by the scruff of the neck from the first crashing chord and is full of powerful drumming, Thin Lizzy-esque guitar harmonies and an infectious, epic fist in the air chorus! It sets the tone well for the rest of the album." The Morrigan is available for streaming now HERE.
The Last Caress Of Light was recorded at Foel Studios in Wales at the end of August 2010 with producer Chris Fielding. The result are eight tracks of dark, stormy, epic Celtic Metal with which mix the melancholy and atmosphere of Irish Folk with the epic might of heavy metal bands such as Warlord, Iron Maiden and Thin Lizzy. The album stands out from all else as a record of intense emotional power and honesty; holding the listener within a dark heavy metal storm and not letting go until the last chords have rung out.
