Munruthel's "CREEDamage" Seeing Vinyl Release

In February of 2014 Possession Productions, in cooperation with Svarga Music, will release a vinyl version of "CREEDamage" - the fifth album from Ukrainian pagan metal band Munruthel. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"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.' The vinyl version contains exclusive bonus track 'Crucible of War.'

"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 album comes in Gatefold DLP with artwork by Mstibog, and layout design by Al.Ex {Mayhem Design} and RA design."
