Biography

(1998 – present)

Formed in January 1998 Mael Mórdha (pronounced MAIL MOOR-AH) have undergone the arduous journey from the unknown, to the front lines of Irish metal. Playing a unique blend of doom metal and traditional Irish laments, the band has successfully fused their influences to create Gaelic doom metal.

The musical evolution began in 1999 with the recording of the 1st E.P, The Path to Insanity. This was followed in early 2000 by The Inferno Spreads E.P. from which the epic Atlas of Sorrow was taken and included in the Sentinel Records IN UNISON compilation later that year. The band then concentrated on the live scene in Ireland playing everywhere possible. The following year, and with a distinctive sound beginning to form, the band recorded the Caoineadh na nGael E.P. to critical acclaim, with positive reviews in German Metal Hammer (Demo of the month - August 2003) and German Rock Hard (May 2004). The band then began writing new material, which was committed to disk in late 2003 in the guise of the Cluain Tarbh E.P.

On the strength of the band’s last two recordings the band was signed to Dutch label Karmageddon Media who released the band’s debut album, Cluain Tarbh, on the 12th of September 2005. An alternative recording of the album title track was released on a 7 inch vinyl (split with Primordial) limited edition through Sentinel Records in the winter of 2005.

In the quest to find a more active label the band recorded a demo cd of songs proposed for a new album in November of 2005. This recording finally found it’s way to the desk of German Record Company Grau. Months of negotiating between both band and label bore fruit as in February 2006 contracts were finally signed.
