Ireland’s dark ambient/black metal alchemists From The Bogs Of Aughiska begin their UK tour with crushing doom trio Coltsblood in Oxford this Wednesday, before calling at Liverpool, Nottingham and London during the week.

Hailing from the harsh coastline of the West of Ireland From The Bogs Of Aughiska deliver eerie atmospheric rumblings with a terrifying fusion of dark ambient and black metal; imagine Lustmord remixing Darkthrone. Their 2013 full length ‘Roots Of This Earth Within My Blood’ featured a guest spot from Mories of Gnaw Their Tongues, giving a hint at the kinds of enveloping, nightmarish sounds going on here. Taking inspiration from Ireland’s bleak environment, rich history & culture, From The Bogs of Aughiska bring to life the myths, legends and spirits of their homeland in a live experience which includes footage of the bleak, barren and primitive landscapes from which the band has arisen.

After releasing their devastating demo ‘Beyond The Lake Of Madness’ back in 2013 (which was later reissued on vinyl by Ulthar Records), Coltsblood teamed up with fellow doomsayers Crypt Lurker for a tour and landed a highly sought after support slot for Watain‘s UK jaunt, allowing them to bring their eerie doom invocations to a much wider audience in the process. 2014 saw the release of their incredible debut album, ‘Into The Unfathomable Abyss’ (available now on CD via Candlelight Records (Dry Cough Records and Burning World Records will be taking care of the vinyl release) and triumphant shows with the likes of Horse Latitudes and Ommadon, whilst so far 2015 has seen a monumental performance at Roadburn festival and a tour with black metallers Ninkharsag, ensuring their live show is honed to perfection.
