Every Shirt XXIX: Gwynbleidd

Free Image Hosting at

shirt: Gwynbleidd
size: XL (US)
vintage: 2008
provenance: band

After several cases of not seeing this band, I eventually caught up with them at a Metal Thursday in April of last year, and got this shirt off them. The shirt itself is decent, with high production values in the small printed area, but the music is the real kicker; prominent influences from both Opeth and Primordial, blended into an organic and independent whole. They haven't played up this way much since, if I can recall, but those around NYC may have more of a chance to see them.

Speaking of shows, the Metalfest stuff will be done when it gets done. I'm working on it, but we're shorthanded at work and I'm still trying to move into my new apartment before the current lease runs out.

And yes, that's a better design; looking forward to seeing them again when they start playing out on the new record.
