Ukrainian ambient folk pagan metal outfit MUNRUTHEL has made their entire body of recorded work available for streaming at munruthel.bandcamp.com.
From 1997’s Yav, Nav I Prav to the band’s widely-praised newest release CREEDamage (which came out last year on Svarga Music), the whole of MUNRUTHEL‘s discography is now streaming for free and can be purchased as a digital download.
Since MUNRUTHEL‘s inception, mastermind Vladislav Redkin has experimented heavily with dark ambient and symphonic pagan metal, creating a truly unique and inspiring musical entity in the process. Now, the band’s evolution can be experienced as it happened.
