PAGANLAND's debut is out now!

PAGANLAND's debut album "Wind of Freedom" is out today at Svarga Music. Followers of the bands like ARKONA, HEIDEVOLK and VINTERSORG should definitely check this release out! Few press quotes to read:


Ukrainian pagan black metal of a fairly slick and accomplished sort. A stirring and atmospheric album, never too cheesy. - Zero Tolerance (UK)


PAGANLAND brings the melancholy and great atmosphere while continuing along the Slavic pagan metal like no one else seems to characterize. They cannot be mixed up with numerous other bands in this movement, because they managed to create a unique identity with their work. Really a must. - Rock Tribune (Belgium)


Surprise of the Month! Even more authentic to the areas of Western Ukraine and Carpathian mountains, Paganland is certainly worth of the attention of those into earlier works by Nokturnal Mortum and Drudkh (without an overt nationalistic message). - MetalReviews (USA)

PAGANLAND's debut to be released in March 2013

Svarga Music announces March 4th, 2013 as the international release date for PAGANLAND's "Wind of Freedom". The band's debut album, "Wind of Freedom" is the Ukrainians' first new release in nearly five years, following a split-CD with Tini Zabutyh Predkiv in 2008. A celebration of pagan pride and a show of metal might, Wind of Freedom carries the listener on a windswept journey like no other - verily, to a mystical Pagan Land.


Paganland "Wind Of Freedom" Front Cover


PAGANLAND is a group of persons holding the same views, who respect and love their native land, their nation, their language, and who are convinced that the Ukraine is the cradle of all Slavonic people with improbably interesting history forgotten and distorted for the last ten centuries. Band's members try to express their love of the native land, the nature in their lyrics and music, as well as draw attention of their listeners to the fact that not only money and lies rule the world in the period of the Epoch of Pisces. Human beings can - and must - stand up for the truth, and the truth of life has been established long ago by our ancestors. All meaning of PAGANLAND's creative activity is tribute to their land, their ancient culture, their history.

Out now - MUNRUTHEL's CREEDamage on CD/DIGI-CD

Today Svarga Music releases "CREEDamage" - a brand new, fifth album of Ukrainian Pagan Metal band MUNRUTHEL. Performed in the finest traditions of Symphonic Pagan Metal, the new album features guest vocals from Masha "Scream" (ARKONA) and Wulfstan (FOREFATHER), as well as a cracking cover of BATHORY's "The Lake".

MUNRUTHEL's most mature work to date, the album's musical canvas is decorated not only with the atmospheric dabs inherent in early works of the project's composer, but also with the aggressive riffing first heard on "Oriana Tales" and fully revealed on "Epoch of Aquarius". "CREEDamage" will be more interesting to the admirers of a heavy guitar sound that is matched with powerful orchestral arrangements and graceful atmospherics.

The album concept covers topics that have been explored by the composer since MUNRUTHEL's origin in 1995. Specifically, it concerns his boundless love for Mother Nature, as an embodiment of native, natural beliefs and a primordial pagan outlook. The track "Carpathians' Shield" is dedicated to the memory of last known Molphar (traditional sorcerer by birth in Carpathian culture) Mikhail Nechay (24.02.1930 - 14.07.2011), who was killed in the summer of 2011 by a Christian zealot.


Album come in standard jewelcase edition and in limited to 300 pcs 6-panel digipak. Artwork by Mstibog, layout design by Al.Ex {Mayhem Design}.
