Italian legendary Speed/thrash metallers CELTIC HILLS have released their first single and lyric video "After the Earthquake", taken from the band's new album Huldufˇlk, coming out in the first quarter of 2022 via Elevate Records.

"After The Hearthquake" is a song that tells of the strength and aggregation of the people after the terrible earthquake of May 6, 1976 in Friuli. A text that tells the tenacity, the solidarity for what has gone down in history as the Great Reconstruction of Friuli. A hymn to remain united and help each other during the tragedies that afflict the peoples of the whole Earth.

The new album Huldufolk collects and relaunches the excellent reviews obtained from the previous work. Huldufolk is a record with a lot of melody but characterized by the speed that distinguishes CELTIC HILLS, and this single is a great taste of what we're going to hear.

The album was produced also this time by Michele Guaitoli, singer of >b?TEMPERANCE and VISIONS OF ATLANTIS in the studios of the Groove Factory in Udine and for the realization of the cover again the talented Sheila Franco.

Just recently band's singer and guitarist Jonathan Vanderbilt announced the guest guitarist, Gabriele Pala (Karnak, Azure Agony, Goldenseed), playing two solos in the album for the songs "Green Forest" and "Gate of Hollow Earth". In addition to being a very good guitarist, Gabriele is an expert connoisseur of Chapman Stick, an instrument played with the tapping technique.

Earlier Jonathan revealed on Huldufˇlk:

"Again this time we will talk about Friuli, and the theory is at work that the location of the American Air Force Base Aviano is used to control an ancient access to the underground world, which has been used by the pagan gods since ancient times. The magical rites of the inhabitants of the mountains and the places where elves, fairies and gnomes once lived among the people are revealed. There are already definitive titles such as "The Sound of the Earth" in F sharp minor. A text tells how you can use the beneficial energy of the trees at dawn to strengthen your energies, but there will be no lack of historical events that accompany every CELTIC HILLS album."

Jonathan Vanderbilt reveals on the album cover artwork:

"The cover was again entrusted to Sheila Franco with the input of drawing a brighter cover, with the predominant green between the green that characterizes the MATRIX movie and the green of uncontaminated nature. A record in the balance between the enchanted world of legends, heroic deeds performed by people who wanted a better world. A record that looks to the past, projecting itself into a future to be built. A passing disc that wants to take past history with it to go further ...to draw."

The tracklisting reads the following:

  • "The Secret of the Grail"
  • "Metal Message "
  • "After The Eartquake"
  • "Hidden Folk"
  • "Green Forest"
  • "Gate Of Hollow Earth"
  • "Living Out Of The Egg"
  • "The Sound Of Earth"
  • "The Hammer Of Thor"
  • "Villacher Kirktag"
Bonus track
  • "Words In Out" (remix 2022)
