In the Halls Of Our Ancient Fathers by CELTACHOR reviewed

So says the title, I reviewed CELTACHOR demo...
Let’s start by the artwork that shows you fast the celtic theme from the band but when I look at it from far distance, I find it shame the bandlogo is smaller than others…
About the bandlogo still, it reminds me the Cruachan one. Maybe that “celtic” side & “Ireland” helps ? Heh but that “C” …Cruachan is a great band but one more original Celtachor logo would have been better imo. 
Ogham feat. on the cd & means ”Tuireann” & "Cian" (Lugh’s father).
There are lyrics in the booklets making that last like a book & a special note on first page explaining what this cd is about: “The demo covers the rise of Lugh […] & sorrow & grief that fell on the sons of Tuireann for the killing of Cian”. […] - Appreciated.
