accursed years

Accursed Years was formed in 2013. They take their name from the two thousand years of the first period of Sauron’s rule over J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth in the latter part of the Second Age. The name has come to symbolise many things, including the Norman occupation of England from the eyes of an Anglo-Saxon, to the bleak times of depression in life.
This folky, melodic death/black metal band is from Dorset, England. Providing a bleak, atmospheric, yet fist pumping style of metal influenced by a combination of the European folk, black and melodic death metal scene, and from the more sombre forms of metal from their native land.
