GAOTH is a new one-man Atmospheric/Post Black Metal project from Ireland, which birthed itself onto the scene with the debut full length release ‘Dying Season’s Glory’ in July 2016.
The music encompasses a meld of traditional Atmospheric Black Metal with vast & blistering ambiences to create ethereal, transcendental & timeless atmospheres, intertwined with brief moments of earthy ‘reflection’ or contemplation. This soundscape is largely informed & inspired by the Seasons, Mountains, Forests, Soil & Lakes of Ireland.
The name GAOTH derives from Old Irish ‘gáeth’, from Proto-Celtic ‘gaito’, from Proto-Indo-European ’ghai’,’ghei’,’ghi’, meaning WIND, DRIVE or STORM. It is these very elements & the vast inherent lineage contained therein that forms the body & soul of GAOTH.
As part of our underground series this CD is limited to 500 copies.
