2 years on from the third album “Eternal”, RUADH return with the 4th album entitled “1296“. Following on from previous releases this album is again built around a concept, this time from arguably the most important period of Scottish history.
“1296” saw the “Sack of Berwick” and the beginning of the English invasion of Scotland in what is known as the first wars of Independence.
The album contains 6 tracks built around the people and events of this period with some noted absences due to the obvious limitation to tell a story in this medium without it being excessively long. “This is an album not a book, so it won’t map the entire multiple decade conflict but an abbreviated version of history!” says Tom Perret, Ruadh’s mastermind.
The album announcement comes with a promotional video as well for the track “Sack Of Berwick“. The video was filmed by Comharra Music and can be seen on youtube below:
