PureGrainAudio.com is now offering an exclusive free download on the song “The Mown Dawns Lie on the Ground” (featuring guest vocals from Masha Scream of Russian pagan metallers ARKONA) from CREEDamage, the forthcoming fifth album from Ukrainian ambient folk pagan metal outfit MUNRUTHEL. Visit this location to snag your free download of this folk metal masterpiece. CREEDamage will be released on November 12th via Svarga Music.
A video for the album’s title track is currently being featured at www.svarga.eu, where pre-orders for CREEDamage are now being taken.
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’s 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.
CREEDamage will be released in standard jewel-case and limited 6-panel digipak formats.
