Carach Angren

In 2003, Carach Angren (“Irons Jaws” in Sindarin, an Elvish language from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth) is formed in thesouthern regions of Limburg, The Netherlands, by Seregor, Namtar and Ardek. The band choses a classical, storytellingapproach in the broad genre. Symphonic arrangements on keys characterize the bands sound as it is the perfect underscore tothe storytelling element.

In 2003, Carach Angren (“Irons Jaws” in Sindarin, an Elvish language from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth) is formed in thesouthern regions of Limburg, The Netherlands, by Seregor, Namtar and Ardek. The band choses a classical, storytellingapproach in the broad genre. Symphonic arrangements on keys characterize the bands sound as it is the perfect underscore tothe storytelling element.

Carach Angren was formed in 2003 in the Dutch municipality of Landgraaf, after two members of Vaultage started a sideproject, due to their shared love of both legends and black metal. It seemed to go well, so Vaultage stepped down and CarachAngren "was ready for bigger steps".

Their first EP was The Chase Vault Tragedy, which, like all their releases, is a concept album. Following this, they released asecond EP, Ethereal Veiled Existence, at which point they were picked up by Maddening Media in 2007. It was then that CarachAngren recorded their first full-length album, 'Lammendam', which received positive international reviews.

Their second album, 'Death Came Through a Phantom Ship', was released on February 26, 2010. They participated in the ADeclaration of Hate European tour in support of this, with extreme metal bands Dark Funeral, Zonaria and Nefarium.

Carach Angren is a bad ass ban.

On 18th May 2012, their third studio album, 'Where the Corpses Sink Forever', was released.
