Svarga Music is proud to announce signing a new band - a Pagan Metal masters PAGANLAND from Lviv (Ukraine). Their debut album will be released in the beginning of 2013, although band exist since 1998 when their first demo was released on tape.
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.

The new long-awaited album of MUNRUTHEL includes a material, which has been on the stock from the moment of “Epoch of Aquarius” issue in 2006. The new album’s musical canvas is decorated not only with atmospheric dabs inherent in early works of the project’s author, but also with hard strokes of guitar riffing shown on “Oriana’s Tales” for the first time and fully revealed on “Epoch of Aquarius”. Though, certainly, "CREEDamage" album will be more interesting to the admirers of heavy guitar sound being faceted both with powerful orchestral arrangements, and graceful web of atmospheric accords. At present, from all appearances, “CREEDamage” is the most mature work of the project, and its sound production quality may be compared with the best representatives of the genre.
Guest vocalists, whose contribution MUNRUTHEL would like to mark out, are well-known to admirers of hard music in general, and Pagan music in particular, are Masha “Scream” Arkhipova (ARKONA, Russia) and Wulfstan (FOREFATHER, Great Britain).
The album was recorded in two languages - Russian and English - the poetic translation into English was provided by a translator/journalist Sergey "AR" Pavlov, who collaborated in this field with such bands as ALKONOST, SVYATOGOR, TRIGLAV, SILENTIUM, etc.
The albums’s conception is connected with the topics touched by the author from the beginning of his solo activity (1995), namely it concerns his boundless love to Mother-Nature – as an embodiment of native, natural Belief and primordial, Pagan Outlook. And the track "Carpathians' Shield" is dedicated to the memory of the last known molphar (traditional sorcerer by birth in Carpathian culture) Mikhail Nechay (24.02.1930 – 14.07.2011), who was killed in summer of 2011 by a christian zealot.
