Russia's leading and finest pagan metal band Arkona, who are set to release their brand new album Khram on January 19th 2018 with Napalm Records, have just unveiled a first teaser and exclusive album preview! Get your ears on this first sneak peak, featuring all tracks from Arkona's upcoming album right HERE!
A Khram, the Russian word for temple, is 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 front-lady Masha`s lyrics, that are written in her own blood (which is also part of the artwork)! Arkona 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. So better mark your calendars for January 19th 2018, as Arkona’s Khram is an exuberant and demanding affair that defies genre boundaries with untameable spirit!
Coming as CD Digi Pack, Digital Download and LP Gatefold editions, Khram is now available to pre-order HERE!
In support of their upcoming album, Arkona will be heavily touring in early 2018, including an extensive European tour with Korpiklaani, Heidevolk, Trollfest & many more!

At the beginning of the following year 2011 the second album "Cup of Mud" was released by the biggest Bulgarian metal label, Wizard LTD, and distributed worldwide by the German company Twilight Vertrieb, which was one of the biggest distributors of metal music in the world.
