Ukraine's pagan black metal band Paganland release new single - "Under The Black And Red Banner Of War"! Now available on all streaming platforms:
The single was recorded by Paganland in 2021-2022 during the Russo-Ukrainian War. The band founder and keyboardist Andrii Shalai is defending freedom and independence of Ukraine since February 2022 as a trooper of Ukrainian Armed Forces, 80th Separate Air Assault Brigade.
Paganland started in 1997 in Lviv as a studio project by two musicians: Bilozor and Ruen (Andrii Shalai). Two years later they recorded their first demo Gods Of Golden Circle and completed the band’s line-up with session musicians. In 2003 the second demo Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors was recorded (without Ruen, he wasn’t in Ukraine at that time).
This demo was released in 2008 by Ukrainian label Black Art Prods as a split with Tini Zabutyh Predkiv. Ruen comes back to Ukraine in 2009 and starts to work with the new line-up on the first LP. This album, called Wind Of Freedom was recorded in 2011 and released in 2013 via Svarga Music. In 2013 Paganland start to work on their second album Fatherland, which was released two years later via the same label.
In 2015 the band passed through some line-up changes and start to work on their third album From Carpathian Land, which was released in 2016 via Svarga Music and in 2018 via Japanese label Hidden Marly Prods. The band has also recorded a two-track EP Belted By Spirit that was available on the band’s official Bandcamp. Also in 2017 Paganland played their XX anniversary show. Later it was recorded and released as live album by Azermedoth Prods. In 2020 band released their 4th full-length album called Galizier - dedicated to Galicia, history of this land and fights for freedom. The album will be released via Japanese label Blackest Records.
