The Scottish Caledonian Metal SAOR have released a brand new record called “Forgotten Paths” on February 15 via Avantgarde Music.
The band is inspired by heritage, nature/landscapes, sorrow and traditional poetry. Since its formation in 2013, SAOR has continually evolved while remaining boldly faithful to its Scottish heritage. Forged by the vision of the band’s founder Andy Marshall, SAOR (meaning “Free” in Scottish Gaelic) has a uniquely expressive approach that dives deep into lyrical themes based on literature, landscapes, history, sorrow, nature, and the majestic mountains of his homeland.
Expertly transitioning between atmospheric Black Metal, Celtic Folk, and traditional Scottish sounds – the wildly exploratory music of SAOR knows no limitations and seeks out every opportunity to expand on its potential.
For the past two years, SAOR has been writing and recording an all-new set of powerful songs that take the insightful mix of stunning melody and musical intensity in their sound boldly into the next chapter of their career on the highly-anticipated release of the latest record "Forgotten Paths".
Enlisting the talent of Neige from ALCEST to contribute to the new album, along with another ensemble of talented session musicians, "Forgotten Paths" promises to be a genuine experience in music unlike any other, designed to push/pull emotions through thought-provoking and poetic lyricism and sounds that courageously explore the most innocent expressions to the full storm and fury of Saor’s unbridled passion.
Their creation of Caledonian Metal has clearly caught fire with listeners and ignited what was once only a spark of support into a full-blown blaze of burning desire and an authentic craving for the unmatched skill, uniqueness, and imagination in SAORs verifiably epic sound.
