The Sluagh Return

The Sluagh is a progressive symphonic death metal band from Ireland formed with their current members in 2019. The name is derived from mythological creatures, the ‘Sluagh na marbh’, in Gaelic folklore. Said to be composed of the souls of the dead, usually this army would appear similar to a flock of birds before a person was taken from them.

Following the release of their debut album, Enivid Creatures and previous single, ‘I bhFolach’, masked Irish technical melodic-death force, The Sluagh issue the single ‘128’ with classically scored B-side, ‘128 (EC2)’. 
Speaking of the single the band commented: “Kicking the door in at 240bpm, our new single ’128’, taken from Enivid Creatures 1, is composed with a mix of vulgarity and finesse. With choirs, blast-beats, tech guitar riffs and guttural vocals, the track was written with the intention of dragging the listener on their face for over five minutes of aural brutality.

“Alongside sweeping guitar solos and contrasting orchestral melodies ‘128’ is a broad, full landscape of sound that opens the Enivid Creatures album with a fast, and very heavy punch.

“Being two sides of the same coin, ‘128’ from the Enivid Creatures 2 album shines a light on the melodic face of the project. Showcasing the choirs and orchestral arrangements that sit behind the weight of the band’s performance. ‘128 EC2’ shows a great contrast in the elements that contribute to the band’s sound.”
