THARAPHITA reveal upcoming album details


Estonian blackened pagan metal band Tharaphita will soon release its 6th full-length album, entitled “Ülestõus“, a product of seven years of creative effort and fine-tuning. The new album will be presented at the biggest Estonian metal festival, Hard Rock Laager. The band will play songs from the new album as well as past hits to delight their old fans, since they’ve been around since 1995! “Ülestõus” music is a mix of black, heavy and thrash metal. Lyrics are mostly inspired by Estonian history and the band’s ancestors’ hard struggle for survival and the freedom of their homeland. Tharaphita’s frontman Ank had this to say about history and the album: “According to legend, the mightiest Estonian fire-god Tarapita landed at Estonia’s biggest island Saaremaa. The album cover depicts the main crater of lake Kaali, which was formed by a meteorite. It caused enormous damage and chaos, but also contained iron ore, which made it possible to forge extremely strong weapons for the ancient warriors and tools for farmers. “In an era when most people consider the living nature only as a resource to make money off of, the new album is also a call to reconsider the values dominant in our society“. The album was recorded at the Roundsound studio and contains eight songs. The first single “Ülestõus” can be heard at the band’s official Facebook profile in the links below.
