 :: Reviews
"Cruachan is a band that needs no introduction. They’re one of the godfathers of the Folk Metal genre that is played with honesty and quality, heart and soul. In my humble opinion, again, my personal modest view, this the best band in Ireland. After releasing the first part of the “blood” trilogy, “Blood on the Black Robe”, an album which I highly appreciated, the Irish return with “Blood for the ...”." (Metal Maniac, Brasilien)

Blood for the ... is the Irish’s most powerful offering to date and quite possible Cruachan’s strongest album in their already quite lengthy career. It is this organic feel and authentic package with the lyrics going hand in hand with the music, which sets the band apart from most of their peers and the conviction is palpable. Without a doubt one of the best folk metal albums of 2014 and it is good to see the band still going strong and pushing their envelope after all these years! 9,5/10 points (

"So while you're roaming the ancient Druid battlegrounds of the Emerald Isles, your soundtrack is conveniently provided by the Dubliners of CRUACHAN, so be sure to have "Blood For The ..." handy along your trek!" (Metal-Temple, Greece)

"They have created the template for 20+ years for all other folk metal bands to follow and this latest album is no exception. While other bands still try to follow this template, no one still sounds like Cruachan. " (, NL)
