Deluxe 2CD Digipak with gold foil print with 8 page folded booklet, numbered to 2,000.
Brand new, previously unreleased recordings by PRIMORDIAL, DRUDKH, KAMPFAR, WINTERFYLLETH, AVA INFERI, MONDVOLLAND, HIMINBJORG, HÄIVE. This compilation features international metal artists gathered by DRUDKH mastermind Roman Sayenko. All participating bands are expressively linked in their artistic output to the culture and history of their countries of origin. Therefore they represent eight regions of modern Europe and yet find common ground in the different musical traditions they explore. Each artist employs their own means to find and present their roots to the world. You will discover interpretations of traditional songs, cover versions of folk artists or the use of themes and melodies from their musical heritage in original compositions. "The idea behind this compilation is a coming together of like-minded artists from all across Europe in an attempt to rediscover the history and traditions of their respective areas of origin; through the medium of traditional music", explains Chris Naughton of WINTERFYLLETH. “This compilation brings together eight artists, who have a strong historical interest and a pre-existing link to the music of their respective homelands.”
