Format: Audio CD
Their last album 'Caledonia' provided these german folk-thrashers with the breakthrough they'd always been looking for. While stakes were high for this, especially with the (again) departure of Marcel Schoen, i'm delighted to say that Suidakra are back better then ever and ready to slay the folk metal world with 'Crogacht', not only one of their best albums but also one of top folk metal albums in recent years to grace this increasingly overgrowded genre.

As 'Conloach' thunders out after the beautiful intro 'Slan', its very clear that Suidakra were definitly listening carefully when touring with the likes of Ensiferum and Equillibrium, as 'Crogacht' sees them at their most epic. Keyboards and choirs are used in abundance, as well as overdubbing of guitar harmonies and clean singing to give the album a collosal and majestic feel, much like their Viking Metal brethern or even Blind Guardian. Spine tingling moments are aplenty in 'Crogacht'. The odd blast of bagpipes, with the addition of tin whistles and banjos, make a welcome return and go down a treat. Better still, the production is absolutley HUGE; the rhythm guitars pound you like walls of steel and the incrediable drums feel an earthquake in your ears while the trademark celtic melodies and leads sour over head and bring out the celt in us all. Arkadius is also back on top form in the vocal department and sounds truly terrifying after his slighly strained performance on 'Caledonia' (it might just be a few production tricks but i'm not complaining). All in all, this sounds just amazing and almost cinematic without being pretentious.

However, its not just fancy production and bagpipes that make 'Crogacht' so special.

Excellent Celtic folk metal album 3 May 2009
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For a band that's been around almost a decade and a half, Suidakra are finally getting their due. This will hopefully be the album that sees them getting the recognition and respect that is long overdue to them.

Starting with the artwork (outside cover artwork and several illustrations inside) by the always excellent Kris Verwimp, it creates an aesthetic that really matches the music contained inside. Amazing desolate landscapes reflect the epic character of the music and illustrations of key events from the story (it's a concept album) are all contained in a classy and well-designed digipack.

The music is a finely honed version of what Suidakra does best, melodic death with Celtic influences. Acoustic guitars and folk melodies abound, and the bagpipes are back for a few tracks. The songwriting seems to be finely tuned, and even better than you've heard them previously. This is top-tier Grade A stuff. This album SHOULD get Suidakra up there with the leaders of the genre. Whether or not it actually DOES is a different matter, but it would be well deserved.
Suidakra are great once again. 14 May 2009

They got rid of that horrid singer they had on "Command To Charge", the best thing they could have ever done.

Creative and Enjoyable! 30 Dec 2010

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'd never heard music quite like this and heartily enjoyed this album! At times more blending would have gone well, but overall it was great.
