Description

Russia's leading and finest pagan metal band ARKONA, who are set to release their brand new album Khram on January 19th 2018 via Napalm Records.

A blackened pagan metal masterpiece!

Khram is the Russian word for temple - and is also the title of the eighth Arkona album. A Khram is a temple shrouded in natural mysticism slumbering behind nocturnal treetops, yet open to everyone. The sincerity and depth that binds all five band members together resonates in the sumptuously dark cover artwork and leading lady Masha`s lyrics that are written in her own blood (which is also part of the artwork). Arkona may have used sound samples in their early days, but nowadays cellos, brass parts, wind instruments and throat singing are recorded live meticulously and flow naturally into harsh metal on headstrong tracks like 'Shtorm'. King-sized songs effortlessly shift from blackened pagan metal masterpieces to epic tracks with crystal-clear melodies and piano infusions. Arkona's Khram is an exuberant and demanding affair that defies genre boundaries with untamable spirit!
