Cnoc An Tursa Stream New Song 'The Yellow Locks Of Charlie'

Cnoc An Tursa

(Metal Hammer) Cnoc An Tursa (Gaelic for 'Hill of the Standing Stone') have released a lyric video for the song The Yellow Locks Of Charlie, which comes from their forthcoming album.

Considering Scotland's own rich, battle-studded history and glorious scenery, you wouldn't expect the tide of 'Heritage black metal' to be confined to the south of Hadrian's Wall. Former labelmates of Winterfylleth, Cnoc An Tursa have been using their Falkirk home as the source of sweeping grandeur associated with the movement for a decade now, and their 2013 debut album, The Giants Of Auld, was a stirring take on symphonic folk and black metal, bringing in strong Gaelic influences but reaching for the epic through sheer muscle and powerful, mid-paced grooves rather than overdoing the bombast.

Now the five-piece are returning to the fray with a new, album The Forty Five, due on February 17 via Apocalyptic Witchcraft and based around the Jacobite Uprising in 1745, waged by Charles Edward Stuart, better known as Bonnie Prince Charlie, to wrest the British throne from George II.

If this news stirs your beating heart, than raise your shield in triumph because we have an exclusive preview in the righteous form of a lyric video to the track The Yellow Locks Of Charlie, based on the traditional battle song by one Henry Scott Riddell. Featuring live footage, roving scans across scene-setting artwork and a questionable choice of font, The Yellow Locks Of Charlie is an eight-minute epic that will have chests swelling, spears thrusting and kilts flapping with foe-frightening intensity. here.
