Tue, Oct 22 2013: DRUDKH
On next January 17th (January 21st in North America), Season of Mist will release a vinyl split EP by DRUDKH and WINTERFYLLETH, entitled ‘Thousands of Moons Ago / The Gates’. The four-track release will include cover songs recorded by both bands, paying tribute to their early influences.
The split brings together two of Europe's leading black metal bands for the first time on one LP and represents two genre challenging bands drawing on their own influences and re-imagining songs that are important to them. Ukrainian poets DRUDKH continue to pay homage to old, talented, but forgotten Slavic bands after 2010’s ‘Slavonic Chronicles’, their previous cover EP.
Those of you who don’t own a record player will still be able to listen to those songs, since the EP will also be released digitally. As for the CD format, a new compilation will also hit the stores on January 17th/21st. Entitled ‘Eastern Frontier in Flames’, it will include all DRUDKH’s tracks from ‘Thousands of Moons Ago’, as well as the ‘Anti-Urban’ and ‘Slavonic Chronicles’ EPs, which have never been available separately on CD so far.
DRUDKH’s whole back catalogue is available in various editions on Season of Mist’s e-shop.
