ZHORA : Live @ The Siege – Samhain 2014… Posted: 19/02/2015 by John O'Brien


The next Siege Of Limerick festival is almost upon us! With the legendary SOLSTICE headlining the ‘Earrach 2015′ event. So to get your festival juices flowing even further we have another live recording from the last ‘Samhain 2014′ installment of Ireland’s premier metal meeting. Earlier this week we posted up a few tracks from OLD SEASON‘s set last October. Up next we have a FULL SET from Clonmel’s progressive metal heroes, ZHORA.

Definitely up there as one of the hardest working bands in the Irish metal community, ZHORA hit the ground at top speed since their inception on late 2011 with the release of their widely acclaimed debut “Feet Nailed To The Ground”. The band have also gigged and toured solidly over the last few years in support of their 2013 album, “Almaz”. And by the looks of things are showing no signs of slowing down, as they will be heading into the studio over the Spring to record their eagerly awaited second full length, with a planned release in the Summer.

ZHORA are also just back from a successful jaunt over to Scotland where they played shows in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinurgh with UK acts IKARIE, ROBOT DEATH MONKEY and WIZARDS BEARD. And you can catch ZHORA back here in Ireland supporting Dutch Death Metal band DICTATED on their three upcoming Irish dates in March…

Mar 12th – Fibbers – Dublin
Mar 13th – Dolans – Limerick
Mar 14th – Roisin Dubh – Galway

Thanks a million to ZHORA‘s Colin Bolger and the rest of the band for allowing these tracks to be made available. And thanks also to Tall John and Ciaran Culhane at BadReputation Ireland for their help in organising the recordings.
