ARKONA upcoming album news and tour dates

ARKONA - Khram

Russia’s leading pagan folk metal band Аркона (Arkona) has unveiled the first details of their upcoming eighth studio album “Храм“, set to be released on January 19th 2018 via Napalm Records! Храм (khram), is the Russian word for temple. A Храм 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)! Аркона 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 the band’s harsh metal tunes. King-sized songs effortlessly shift from blackened pagan metal masterpieces to epic tracks with crystal-clear melodies and piano infusions. Mark your calendars for January 19th 2018, as Аркона’s Храм is an exuberant and demanding affair that defies genre boundaries with untamable spirit! As usual, fully Russian version will be released by SoundAge Production both in limited edition digi-book and jewel case CD. The band has already unveiled the cover artwork and album tracklist:

Tracklist:
1. Мантра (Интро) [3:51]
2. Шторм [5:12]
3. Целуя Жизнь [17:11]
4. Ребенок без имени [11:58]
5. Храм [9:50]
