ARKONA Premiere Video From Upcoming Album ‘Khram’!

Khram, the Russian word for temple and title of ARKONA’s upcoming, hotly anticipated studio album will see the light of day on January 19th 2018 with Napalm Records. Just recently the band fronted by scream queen Masha unveiled a first album sneak preview, as well as a full audio premiere for the track ‘Shtorm‘. In their early days ARKONA may have used sound samples, but nowadays cellos, brass parts, wind instruments and throat singing are recorded live meticulously and flow naturally into the band’s harsh metal tunes. Russia’s finest pagan metal band have re-invented themselves and with their upcoming album ‘Khram’ they deliver an exuberant and demanding affair that defies genre boundaries with untamable spirit!

Today ARKONA premiere a first video for the song ‘V pogonie za beloj ten’yu’. Get this tasty appetizer on ARKONA’s brand new album and check out the band’s video right HERE!

Vocalist Masha comments: “We’d like to present our animated music video for the song “In Pursuit of the White Shadow” taken from our new album “Khram” (“The Temple”). The song’s title means “in pursuit of non-existent”.

The video footage is based on the song’s plot, and it concerns the pursuit of an illusion – the pursuit of something invisible, that, in fact, does not exist at all, but we blindly strive for it without realizing the existing fact of this illusion. The protagonist of the video is a faceless silhouette symbolizing mankind, and it is depicted as a figure drifting on water. The figure strives to an unattainable lighthouse located at the other side of the world and hypnotizing with its tempting illusory light. This light shines from time to time, and disappears in the darkness, leaving the protagonist lost and alone to drift on the river of our life – forever.

The video presents the designed Rune graphics based on the hypothetical pre-Christian Slavonic writing, which is called in modern Russian sources as “Boyanovitsa”.

“Boyanovitsa” is a common name of the alphabet, which was used in “Boyan’s Hymn” (skalds of Rus were called as “boyans”). “Boyan’s Hymn” was a part of antiquities’ collection of A.I. Sulakadzev, the collector from St. Petersburg. In the 19th century “Boyan’s Hymn” was copied and partially published by G.R. Derzhavin, a statesman, and one of the most highly esteemed Russian poets before Alexander Pushkin.

The author’s Runes appear one after another throughout the video, and form a whole phrase in the end – the title of the song “In Pursuit of the White Shadow”. This font also emphasizes the song’s idea concerning non-existent, but hypothetic realities of mankind, thereby highlighting the song’s concept meaning “in pursuit of non-existent”.

Coming as CD Digi Pack, Digital Download and LP Gatefold editions, ‘Khram’ is available to pre-order HERE!

The track list reads as follows:
1. Mantra (Intro)
2. Shtorm
3. Tseluya zhizn’
4. Rebionok bez imeni
5. Khram
6. V pogonie za beloj ten’yu
7. V ladonyah bogov
8. Volchitsa
9. Mantra (Outro)

JINJER – Premiere Lyric Video For “A Plus Or A Minus”!

Beauty and the Beast – JINJER unify both worlds, as they flare up the time-honored contrast of good and evil. JINJER are hard to describe, but you can try saying they are an extremely groovy, disharmonic Djent, technically tricky like progressive Death Metal band tumbling delightfully between Nu Metal and Metalcore sounds. They are a force to be reckoned with, centered around Tatiana’s gnarly gurgling growls and goose-bump inducing clean singing!

JINJER are set to re-release their game changing second studio album “Cloud Factory” (2014) on February 16 as kick-ass Reissue with full sound, huge guitars, more boom and two exclusive live tracks!

Now please check out a brand new video for “A Plus or a Minus”. The band comments on the track:

“As most of you don’t know, A Plus Or A Minus is a visual prequel to our I Speak Astronomy video, meaning both videos are connected … and we’ve always wanted to give it its own video so when Napalm Records asked to re-release our second album CLOUD FACTORY, we jumped at the chance to cast a light on some of our favorite tracks, one that was sometimes overshadowed by our more popular material. Huge props go out to the wonderfully talented people at The Black Soil Productions for directing this fine piece of awesomeness and making this video a reality!”

Enjoy “A Plus or a Minus” HERE.

A kick-ass live version of “Who Is Gonna Be the One” has already been released. Watch it HERE.

“Cloud Factory” ReIssue track listing:
1. Outlander
2. A Plus or a Minus
3. No Hoard of Value
4. Cloud Factory
5. Who Is Gonna Be the One
6. When Two Empires Collide
7. Zhelayu-Znachit-Poluchu
8. Bad Water
9. A Plus or a Minus (live from Sentrum)
10.Who Is Gonna Be the One (live from Atlas)
