Àrsaidh - Roots (2013)

Scottish atmospheric, folk-infused black metal. Epically mournful songs composed of lush, towering walls of guitars, vicious shouts, ethereal backing vocals, and various traditional Scottish folk instruments -- yes, that includes bagpipes. Roots has since been reissued under this project's new moniker, Saor. It's worth mentioning that, somehow, this is a solo project, the man behind it has another project called Fuath, and both released truly phenomenal records this year.

Track listing:
1. Roots
2. Carved in Stone
3. Saorsa
4. A Highland Lament

Stars ignite the sky
Illuminating sacred stones
