Siege of Limerick – Earrach 2019 – 21st April 2019
(Nautik Funeral Doom – Germany)
“Officially launched in 2004 Ahab have slowly but surely clawed their way from the depths of obscurity to a level of fan loyalty that many detractors of the doom genre figured was reserved for the well worn favourites like My Dying Bride, Skepticism, early Cathedral, and even earlier Paradise Lost. Ahab’s progress has been characteristically – some might say appropriately – slow, but since the release of their first official full length album The Call Of The Wretched Sea in 2006, they have succeeded in retaining the interest of an extremely fickle music world and anchoring their own unique identity in the public eye.
Ahab have previously interpreted classic written works such as Moby Dick (Herman Melville) and The Narrative Of Arthur Gordon Pym Of Nantucket (Edgar Allen Poe). The band has become a literary inspiration for some fans, inviting them to explore books they otherwise might have ignored entirely.”
