Slegna-Kra

Crom Cruach was formed in July 2005 by founding members Cathalstrophic {Vox} and Kradmar {Lead Guitars}.

Drummer Nocternia joined in 2008. The demo album "Narcotic Death" was self produced and released in the subsequent year. The sound being raw and much akin to early Black Metal.

In 2010 writing began on the second album "Awaken in Darkness" - an 8 track album with a more mature, accomplished sound. In 2011 the album was recorded by Shay's Studio in Loughrea, Co. Galway. As well as being a talented sound engineer, Shay Leon provided an amazing working environment to record in, producing an album of top sound quality without compromising on atmosphere. On 26th August 2011 recording was completed.

In April 2012 Slegna-kra was formed after the disbanding of Crom Cruach, and as a side project by Kradmar and Cathalstrophic. The purpose was to capture the spirit of old Irish stories and histories whilst still keeping the atmosphere of old school Black Metal. 2012 saw the release of "This is the Age", recorded by Kradmar and mastered by Shay Leon.

In 2013 Filthspitter was formed with Slaine on drums. This line up brought about a more experimental sound to the group, taking influence from early punk and black metal. Later in the year writing began on Rebirth with Filthspitter reworked as Crom Cruach. This was to be a double album with the first half heavy, almost doom-like. The second half was acoustically driven and experimenting with shamanism. Lyrics and vocals were kept on a minimised, simplistic basis with the music being rhythmic and entrancing.
