Pyrolysis Give-Away!

onmountainshighistand_cover Yay to having more goodies to give away! What do we have for you this time? A brand spanking new, not yet released, first full length album of our friends of Pyrolysis, and it’s even autographed for you!

When we first saw Pyrolysis it was at Keltfest in 2014 where they crashed the festival and played a great acoustic set. Their bold attitude in playing a festival they weren’t booked for, and the sheer enthusiasm in their music made quite and impression!

Fast forward to 2015 and now they are ready to release their first full-length album, On Mountains High I Stand, which is where this give-away comes in. From now until Friday the 26th of June, when they have their album release party, you can win a signed copy! To give you an idea of the album I’ll say that it is very versatile. Some of the tracks will remind you of Pyrates!, while others have an energy that I get from for instance The Dolmen. But the tracks that are most important to CeltCast, like our current Monthly Marker “Life At Morrisons”, can be easily described as “Early Rapalje”.

We at CeltCast believe that these guys and girl have a bright and long future in Folk music ahead of them, so how awesome would it be to have an “early days album” of Pyrolysis once they are huge and global? 😉 It’s very easy to win, so why wait? Share the post on our Facebook page and comment on it, and you just might be the winner!!


Greenrose Faire Give-Away!!

Greenrose Faire
FREE GOODIES GIVE-AWAY!!

We have for you: not 1, but 2! signed copies of the new album by Greenrose Faire, which is yet to be released, but already in our possession! 🙂
And to make it a proper goodie-set, they have decided to throw in a T-shirt and poster as well!

All you have to do for your chance to win these items is share this Facebook post and comment on it, so we know you did. (When your shared post isn’t set to “public”, we won’t be able to see it.)

Finnish folk-rock band Greenrose Faire are about to release their third album, Feed the Flames, which not unlike their previous albums, combines folk sounds and acoustic instruments with a background in rock music, creating a very typical but very pleasing personal style. But don’t just take my word for it! Win the album and you’ll be enjoying it yourself real soon!

What was that? You have no idea what the tracks on the album are? Well hold on…
During this competition we will release a review of a track from the album every weekday, together with a snippet of background information about that track, written by Greenrose Faire!

So what are you waiting for? Share this post and comment on it and you might just win this great new album! 🙂


Happy New… Competition!!

Harmony Glen - Prizes (750p)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! HAPPY NEW COMPETITION!! 🙂

Our good friends of Harmony Glen have graciously donated some great goodies for a brand new joined competition. So if you want to start the new year with some nice shiny gifts, pay attention!

What can I win, you may ask? Well, we have:
– 4 posters,
– 2 T-shirts,
– 1 copy of “Where the Wind Blows” and
– 1 copy of their latest album “The Cure For Everything”

So, 8 prizes, 8 winners!

In order to have a chance to win one of these prizes, post a message to the Facebook page of Harmony Glen. But not just any message. We would like to know what your favourite track by Harmony Glen is, so we can make sure to play it on CeltCast. So the sentence that you should post is:

“I would like to win a new years prize from Harmony Glen,
and I would like to hear
(enter track here) on CeltCast.”

Make sure that you tag CeltCast in this sentence, otherwise it will not show on our page so we will have no idea that you entered in the competition. 🙂

And if you don’t know The Cure For Everything yet, well, it just so happens that we have made a review! 🙂
