More information about Thousands Of Moons Ago / The Gates

Ukrainian black metal pioneers DRUDKH have released a track from ‘Thousands of Moons Ago / The Gates’, their new split EP alongside the UK’s WINTERFYLLETH. The first track, entitled “…W Krainie Drzew” is streaming now at Stereogum.

“…W Krainie Drzew” was originally written and recorded by HEFEYSTOS (Poland) in 1997. The song’s black metal and heathen background rooted in ancient Slavonic nature was a natural precursor to DRUDKH’s signature sound.

Scheduled for a January 17th release (January 21st in North America), ‘Thousands of Moons Ago / The Gates’ will feature four tracks taking the shape of cover songs recorded by both bands, paying tribute to their early influences. Pre-order it at Season of Mist’s e-shop!

  1. …W Krainie Drzew
  2. Ten, Ktery Se Vyhyba Svetlu
  3. Recidivus
  4. The Gates

‘Thousands of Moons Ago / The Gates’ will be released as a dark bue, hand-numbered 12″ LP limited to 666 copies, and as a separate CD titled ‘Eastern Frontier in Flames’, which will include all DRUDKH’s tracks from ‘Thousands of Moons Ago’, as well as the ‘Anti-Urban’ and ‘Slavonic Chronicles’ EPs. Here are the details:

  1. Fallen Into Oblivion
  2. Ashes
  3. Tam Gdzie Gasnie Dzien
  4. Indiánská Písen Hruzy
  5. …W Krainie Drzew
  6. Ten, Ktery Se Vyhyba Svetlu
