Dalriada

Dalriada was formed in Sopron, Hungary in February 2003 with the intention of combining metal and Hungarian folk music, thus fostering the incredibly rich heritage of Hungarian folk art. Due to other influences some elements of death and gothic metal are also present.

Dalriada was formed in Sopron, Hungary in February 2003 with the intention of combining metal and Hungarian folk music, thus fostering the incredibly rich heritage of Hungarian folk art. Due to other influences some elements of death and gothic metal are also present.

The word „Dalriada” can be familiar to many people. It’s a historical name, the name of the first kingdom of the Scots, but based on some linguistic studies it may have an ancient Hungarian origin with the meaning of “battle-song”. From 2003 until the end 2006 the name of the band was “Echo Of Dalriada” in order emphasize the Hungarian meaning, but at the beginning of 2007 the name was simplified to “Dalriada” to have a shorter name without English words in it.

We can say, that the genre of Dalriada’s music is folk metal, because there are Hungarian folk music elements used in the music, there are folk song extracts in the songs, and even there are some Hungarian folk-song covers in the repertoire of the band. Of course, the basic of the music is metal, from heavy to death. Furthermore some gothic atmosphere is also present.

Lyrics of songs are in Hungarian; music and Hungarian lyrics make each other complete. Mostly the lyrics are self-made, but like in music, there are lyrics from folk songs, and there are some poems of a famous Hungarian poet - Janos Arany – set to music. (Origin: http://www.dalriada.hu) « hide
