Season of Mist
Drudkh - The Swan Road LP
Re-issued by Season of Mist, description from the label: DRUDKH are a true underground phenomenon. Due to the great cooperation with Season of Mist the Ukrainians agreed to re-release their complete catalogue on this label, which started in 2009 with the debut "Forgotten Legends" (2003) and its follow-up "Autumn Aurora" (2004). Now DRUDKH's much sought after third album "The Swan Road" (2005) is made available again by Season of Mist with a carefully restored and remastered sound. This masterwork comes in beautiful digipak edition with new artwork added. "The Swan Road" continues in the spirit of " Autumn Aurora " with the band's trademark Slavonic Pagan Metal sound, which embraces epic folk-influenced melodies and creates cinematic and luxuriant atmospheres charged with melancholy. Lyrically DRUDKH's creative figurehead Roman Saenko draws heavily from the poem "The Haidamakas" of Taras Shevchenko (1814-1861), a humanist, painter and the founding father of Ukrainian literature.
