The band then concentrated on the live scene in Ireland playing everywhere possible. The following year, and with a distinctive sound beginning to form, the band recorded the Caoineadh na nGael E.P. to critical acclaim, with positive reviews in German Metal Hammer (Demo of the month - August 2003) and German Rock Hard (May 2004). The band then began writing new material, which was committed to disk in late 2003 in the guise of the Cluain Tarbh E.P.
On the strength of the band’s last two recordings the band was signed to Dutch label Karmageddon Media who released the band’s debut album, Cluain Tarbh, on the 12th of September 2005. An alternative recording of the album title track was released on a 7 inch vinyl (split with Primordial) limited edition through Sentinel Records in the winter of 2005. In the quest to find a more active label the band recorded a demo cd of songs proposed for a new album in November of 2005. This recording finally found it’s way to the desk of German Record Company Grau. Months of negotiating between both band and label bore fruit as in February 2006 contracts were finally signed. Mael Mórdha’s debut album release through Grau Records, entitled "Gealtacht Mael Mórdha" was released in May 2007 with the re-released version of Cluain Tarbh (with a re-recorded version of "Tá Mael Mórdha ag Teacht" and "A Path to Glory" included) being brought out in 2008. The Band's third album offering, "Manannán", was recorded in the Spring of 2009 and was released by Grau in April 2010. The band is currently working on material for the follow-up of Manannán which they hope to record late in 2011 with a release for 2012 (before the world ends !)
