The Morrigan's Call
Released: Jun 2006
Label: Afm Records
The Morrigan's Call features excellently Pogues-ish extreme shamrock-metal from this group of Dubliners, with songs called "The Brown Bull of Cooley" and "The Old Woman in the Woods" that absolutely live up to their folkloric titles. Plus, there's yet another ale-hoisting interpretive cover (after ones by Tyr and by the Dropkick Murphys, featuring Shane MacGowan) of the 19th-century public domain, either-drinking-or-temperance tune "The Very Wild Rover" -- the "very" of which those previous cover versions had left out of their titles, which means Cruachan's rover is even wilder, right?
