"an Gorta Mór" is a tribute to the tragedy of the great famine in Ireland from 1845 to 1852. More than 1 million people died from starvation and disease during this period.
The album captures an analog feel, sticking to a simple recipe for honest black metal. There are no intro, interlude or outro tracks on the album, just 7 hard hitting tracks that serve as tales of sorrow from both Irish history as well as Celtic mythology.
