ARKONA announce new live album

ARKONA - Decade of Glory

The work on the new live album of Arkona “10 лет во Славу! – Decade of Glory!” is done. It was probably one of the most great and ambitious projects of the band for the last few years: 31 songs and 21 musicians on stage. The band states: “We have not announced the beginning of work on this project, because we were not sure in our abilities, but now, when the work is done, we can tell that most of the songs are much more serious and epic than albums versions. The great work done by Masha, who created new arrangements for chorus and orchestra, the performance of professional guest musicians, great equipment and concert venue helped us to make our plan real.” The 2CD album will be released via SoundAge Productions (for Baltic lands) and Napalm Records for the rest of the world on February 22 2013.
