SAOR

ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL UK

Saor, meaning “Free” in Scottish and Irish Gaelic, is a one-man metal band from Glasgow, Scotland formed in 2012 by multi-instrumentist Andy Marshall. SAOR’s sound is a blend of styles influenced by Scottish folk music, atmospheric black metal and post-rock, using traditional Celtic folk instruments such as tin whistle, bagpipes and bodhrán together with the raw power and emotion of black metal and atmospheric elements of post-rock. Lyrically the band deals with themes of Scottish heritage, Highland nature/landscapes and sorrow, influenced by a deep connection to the Scottish Highlands, its culture and history.
