Stream: Dun Ringill Live at Sticky Fingers, Gothenburg (5.4.2019)

Dun Ringill

For some of you, the term Dun Ringill may conjure up the album Stormwatch from Jethro Tull but here, it refers to Swedish doom metallers Dun Ringill that are, at times, as progressive as Tull was. Their full length debut, Welcome, was released back in March via Argonauta Records and is a rousing six song sonic pleasure. Doom, rock, and folk all have a place in this dark stew but it’s the way the band puts it all together that makes it different enough from anything else to really stand out. Plus, there’s several unexpected twists and turns throughout – flute! Today, we’re excited to bring you a hometown show Dun Ringill performed at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg last month. It’s an excellent performance with high quality video so if you dig concerts and hard rockin’ doom metal, this one’s for you. Hit the play button immediately below and kick back for a spell.
