Hungarian folk metal band Dalriada unveils details of their upcoming studio album “Őszelő”, due out this April. Find more details and listen to the album preview below.
Dalriada evoked the atmosphere of autumn with low-tuned guitars, a bit less folk instruments and more guitar-centric songs on their 10th album, “Őszelő”. This quintessential record of 9+1 new songs contains all familiar elements of Hungary’s most delightful folk metal band; from enormous choirs to epic battle-songs, with lyrics about Hungarian legends, mythology and history. The album is going to be released on the 9th of April, and can now be pre-ordered as Digipak CD and Digipak 2 CD + DVD Limited Edition, coming with their long-awaited first live DVD called “Hazatérés – 15 év Dalriada” (English: Homecoming – 15 Years of Dalriada) which was recorded in October 2019 on their 15th Anniversary Show.
In February, we saw the release of their latest music video, “Betyár-altató”, (Eng.: Outlaw’s Lullaby) an emotional journey of love, adventure, and tragedy into the world of rogues, outlaws and highwaymen of the Great Hungarian Plain of the 19th century, produced and shot by Mihaszna Film. “Betyár-altató” is the third new song to be premiered off the forthcoming album, following the acoustic, special piece “Ezer csillag” (Eng.: A Thousand Stars) last summer, and “Őszi ének” (Eng.: Autumn’s Song) in December. Dalriada was also featured on a Kalapács tribute album in October, performing the song “Sólymok fészke”.
