Composer Tony Thomas (BOTANIST, DAWN OF OUROBOROS) comments:
“My preference is to tell a story with the album, and that means that each song represents a different act of the narration. This does not necessarily mean that it needs to be a tale that could be told with words, but rather through a certain kind of feeling that the music invokes. This specific order of the songs on the album, respectively the track list, best represents this ‘story’ or narration that I felt through the music. This is in general how I work. I pretty much do all my compositions by sentiment and intuition, no matter the project I am working on. I do not usually have something in mind when beginning to compose, I usually just improvise until something stands out to me.“
CAILLEACH CALLING was inceptionalized in the Spring 2021 by long term music partners Tony Thomas (DAWN OF OUROBOROS, BOTANIST) and Chelsea Murphy (DAWN OF OUROBOROS). They had a desire to create a project that was both rooted into the more traditional style of atmospheric Black Metal, while incorporating the more modern and progressive sensibilities they are known for in their other projects. With Tony handling guitars/synths/bass, and Chelsea on vocals, they then enlisted Yurii Kononov (ex-WHITE WARD) on drums to complete the line-up. With a solid line-up they completed their debut “Dreams Of Fragmentation” by late summer of the same year. The album features furious atmospheric Black Metal, with both traditional and post-black sounds mixed with melodic, ethereal, and highly emotional touches to create something that is dynamic, intense and dripping with passion.
