Conorach biography

Conorach is a melodic metal band from the western part of the Netherlands. Their music can best be described as a mixture between Power Metal and Folk, focusing on melody and dynamics. The material is inspired by bands like Iron Maiden, Moonsorrow, Skyclad, Opeth and Falconer.


At the end of 2005, a solid band formation was formed, with which a demo was recorded, titled “A New Day Rising”.
In June 2008, Conorach released their first full-length CD named “Tales from the Tavern” in the presence of a vast audience at Speakers in Delft. The album, which is mastered at Excess Studios, received a great review in the Dutch magazine Aardschok.


In the 2 years following the demo, Conorach builds quite a live reputation. Their shows are energetic and the band often tends to share a barrel of beer with the crowd.
In 2007, Conorach wins the Podium Enjoi Festival contest.


To name but a few, Conorach previously played at the Baroeg (Rotterdam), Dynamo (Eindhoven) and Escape (Veenendaal), with bands like Heidevolk (NL), Hollenthon (A), Thronar (NL), Eluveitie (CH), Odroerir (DE) and Roadkill (NL).
