Ruadh – The Rock Of The Clyde
One-man atmospheric black metal project, Ruadh, return with their sophomore album entitled ‘The Rock of the Clyde’ There will be six tracks of epic, Scottish, atmospheric black metal with folk elements throughout. ‘The Rock of the Clyde’ is an evolution from their debut album ‘Sovereign’. It has a much more melodic feel yet has more visceral elements too. Tom Perrett, hailing from Rutherglen (also known as the red glen) in the central belt of Scotland looks to forge a sound akin to the classics he has always enjoyed such as Bathory, Burzum, Windir and Emperor. Ruadh’s sound will also appeal to fans of newer atmospheric black metal bands such as Saor, Winterfylleth and Panopticon. ‘The Rock of the Clyde’ contains six tracks that are massive in both scope and scale, taking you through the Iron Ages in Scotland. It also explores the history and mythology of the people of Scotland, conveying both sorrow and uplifting, almost heroic tones.
