Drought Black Metal / Co. Dublin

Editor Notes:

New addition to the Irish Metal Scene. And seriously hefty hitters they are, featuring some well seasoned individuals from other very notable Irish bands. They’re debut Demo/EP “MMXIX” may only have two tracks, but it certainly hits the mark.

Formed in 2019, DROUGHT is a collective of individuals with influences across Sludge, Death, Black and Doom Metal. The output of which is expressive and cathartic, aiming to evoke a multitude of senses and emotions within the listener. Members have been involved with bands such as COLDWAR, MORTICHNIA, WARPATH, WOUND UPON WOUND and SLAVE ZERO.

They rebranded as FRAUGHT in mid-2020 to avoid confusion with other bands that shared the name.
