The idea of a concept within the music is not one that is far fetched. First appearing during the sixties, the idea was at large during the seventies via the Prog movement. It has since then been working its way into the DNA of Metal. Tied together by a what could be a story or running theme throughout the album. Opting for a slightly different take on the concept album, Carach Angren, a name inspired by one of the many fictional, Tolkien created languages are a band where concepts are at their core. Combining elements of Black Metal, Death Metal and Symphonic Metal, the trio made up of Seregor, Ardek and Namtar, have created a unique approach to not only song writing but story telling itself.

Horror and Metal seemingly go hand in hand. Comprised of many of the aspects that draw people in. Both genres might be a different medium yet create the same effect. Deciding that Carach Angren would essentially create a hybrid between the two. Having three fantastic releases under their belt already the band decided to step it up a notch with this year’s release This Is No Fairytale. Where concept albums have almost become a trend , we spoke to Ardek about the band’s latest grim effort, how it came about, what exactly inspires our new ghoulish trio along with some of Ardek’s favourite film composers and of course what Horror films are some of his favourite of all time!
