Partholón are proud to announce the release of their new album »The Ocean Pours In«.
»The Ocean Pours In« is a cathartic journey of life imitating art. From the Mary Russell seafaring tragedy to the death of an ancient tradition, five songs, spanning 37 mins, explore the hearts and minds of those that have come and gone.

This eagerly anticipated album represents a profound exploration of atmospheric soundscapes, intricate compositions, and emotional intensity that will undoubtedly captivate both seasoned enthusiasts and newcomers to the genre.
Partholón, known for their ability to seamlessly blend lingering melodies with crushing riffs, has been a driving force in the post-metal scene since their inception. Hailing from the South coast of Ireland, the band consists of Daniel Howard, Alan Setter, James Grannell and Barry Murray, whose collective musical prowess has earned them acclaim for pushing the boundaries of the genre while maintaining a distinct identity and sound.
Their debut release »Follow Me Through Body« (2016) laid down a foundation of extremely heavy music with a heightened emotional charge. A split 7″ release with Soothsayer (IRL) followed titled: »All We Are«. A new album and EU tour was on course for delivery in 2020, however the global pandemic changed everything and survival as a band and beyond became a visceral and immediate reality. Partholón have endured to deconstruct years of work and produce an album worthy of their life experiences and efforts.
