The band, the predecessor of Dalriada, was formed in early January 1998 with a five-person lineup, two guitars, bass guitars, drums and vocals, in Sopron.
The team played a more classic, classical heavy / power metal, where Hungarian, Celtic folk, and old-fashioned elements were already in color.
Between 1999 and 2001, the band was strengthened by a violinist with whom the band moved even further into the new metal field, which was almost unfamiliar with that time.
The early lineup fell apart because of a tragic death, unfortunately the demo records of that time were lost.
Membership remaining in the orchestra was a long way to look for the right setting, first Laura came to sing as a singer in 2001, and shortly thereafter, Tadeusz occupied the space behind the drums.
The inclusion of the Dalriada name, the complete lineup and the first major sounding material, the Walesi Bárdok, appeared in 2003 with the accession of György Varga.
From now on, the team is constantly working, concerts, releasing discs, presenting the Hungarian and increasingly on the international stage. Thanks to the many concerts, musicals and personal conflicts and other reasons, since 2003, many exchanges have been exchanged, but this did not break the momentum of the band.
Since the recordings of Arany-Album since 2009, he has been playing with the Dalriada album, and with the major concert one of Hungary’s outstanding folk music ensembles, the Fajkusz Banda.
The band signed a promise to the German Afm Record in 2011, so the album was promoted and distributed throughout the world.
The Mahasugi’s posting of the band’s publications, the viewing of the clips and the attendance of the concerts all show that there is a great interest in Dalriada’s epic, ballad, old-fashioned, reverberant metal in the world. READ MORE HERE!
