SKYFOREST released acoustic EP

SKYFOREST - Harmony

Russian atmospheric melancholic post black metallers Skyforest have just released their new EP, entitled “Harmony” via Depressive Illusions Records. ”Harmony” is an entirely acoustic EP, with soft, peaceful and dreamy compositions and it serves as a transition from “Unity” to what will come next eventually (hopefully in 2020). Apart from B.M.

WOLF’S CALLING released debut EP

WOLF'S CALLING - Wolf's Calling

Wolf’s Calling is a new folk metal project with Ukrainian and Russian roots that was started by two musicians in the pacific northwest. They recently released their debut EP “Волчий Зов“, after 2017′s debut single “Земля ждет / The Earth Is Waiting“.

Bands such as Arkona, Alkonost, Korpiklaani, Wardruna, Altai Kai and Ensiferum were a big inspiration during the growth and development of their musical paths. As the band states, their name, Wolf’s Calling, symbolizes our disconnection with nature.
