How's it going my gumdrops? Did you enjoy yesterday's blog about the Irish Horror Folktales? In case you missed it, the link is below.
As stated in the last blog, these next few blogs will be Irish and Saint Patrick's Day themed. This includes the next 2 Cartoon Sunday blogs as well. Hopefully, you will enjoy them all and possibly learn something new about each blog I publish, in the following days.
Moving along, we have an Irish themed Song Saturday. Some of you may be familiar with the Irish Black/Celtic Metal band, Primordial. It would NOT surprise me, if a Metal friend/subscriber of mine from Blogster already knew about Primordial.
I have heard of the band over the years. However, I never had the chance to listen to any of their music, until recently. Primordial comes from Skerries, County Dublin, Ireland and has existed for nearly 3 decades.
To be more specific, the band's roots go all the way back to 1987. (In 1987, I was only 5 years old and in love with Slash.) Iron Maiden, Venom, Metallica, Slayer, Celtic Frost, Black Sabbath, and Megadeth are some of Primordial's influences.
Traditional Irish Music is also incorporated into the band's songs.
Earlier this week, I noticed that Primordial has a song on their Storm Before The Calm album titled, "Hosting Of The Sidhe." After conducting research about folktales from Ireland and reading the song's title earlier this week, I automatically noticed the reference to The Evil Irish Fairy Muse, Leanan Sidhe.
If you read the previous blog from yesterday, I explained about Leanan Sidhe. I find it quite interesting that Primordial wrote a song about the muse, that had the ability to seduce poets and musicians. Then, they would die after she left them and would only return to collect their blood in a giant red cauldron.
People with very little to zero knowledge about Leanan Sidhe would NOT have understood Primordial's reference to her. Luckily for my gumdrops, I did my homework this past week.
Anyway, here is Primordial's "Hosting Of The Sidhe" for today's Song Saturday.
