Staff review by

Damn lately the chance was not really on the side of Cruachan. When they finally found the way to sign with a good label to release their long awaited album, "The Morrigan's Call", this label found the way to disappear (and by the way, this is one more time a proof that the music market is not so good nowadays). Later and after some delay, the German label AFM records decided to release the album so now, be happy fans of Celtic music, our favorite Irish Metal combo is back and you'll finnaly be able to find their new album.

Rating: 8 'The Morrigan's Call' follows in the same way that 'Pagan' did, yet this time there seems to be more emphasis on the aggression of the vocals, and also the heaviness of the guitars. Folk instrumentation in the form of violins and other Gallic styles are still obvious, but less use of these means that musically there is a lot more accessibility. This isn't exactly a good thing in the opinion of every Folk Metal fanatic, but for me it fits just right. Perhaps a few too many pre-2 minute interludes, but otherwise this album is a beast.
