SIROCCO – Band Bio:

Formed in Co. Waterford in 2003 by Jim Tobin, SIROCCO are a blend of thrashy rythms, beautiful lead guitar melodies, intricate drumming and pounding bass lines, interleaved with plenty of dual guitar harmonies, and old school heavy metal solos, combined to create a sound which they like to call “Celtic Thrash”. Originally an instrumental band, bass player Ciaran O’ Cearuill stepped up to the mic in early 2007 to finalize the line-up, and is audible on their release “The March Through Crimson Frost”, which was officially released in the U.K. and Ireland; released on April 7th, 2008, through Code7 Music.

SIROCCO have played over 100 shows since their inception, including support spots for Exodus, Megadeth, Wasp, Suidakra, Firebird, Crowning Glory, Waylander and Wolfchant, as well as playing at the Cork Winterfest 2007 festival alongside Primordial, The DOD 2008 Festival alongside Watain and the Full Metal Rack 2008 Festival alongside Pagan Altar. The 4-piece have also travelled to the U.K., where they played a headlining show with U.K. metallers Savage Messiah and Heathen Foray in November 2007, and again in June 2008 to headline the inaugural Summer Solstice Pagan Festival.

Their new and third album, Lambay, a concept album about the Viking invasion of Ireland, saw the light of day back in August / September of 2012. 2012 also saw the bands first shows in Belarus, Lithuania, Spain and Malta.

  1. These guys sound interesting – must check them out…it brings to mind the great Irish bands that have graced the rock genre through the ages – not just Thin Lizzy, but bands like Horslips and Fruupp, If you don’t know them, check out ‘The Tain’ from the former and ‘The Prince of Heavens Eyes’ from the latter!
