Debemur Morti Productions has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Finnish outfit Draugnim:
"Back in 1999, Draugnim, a Finnish entity, decided to sacrifice its blood to the Earth. Four demos and two albums later, I'm extremely honoured to join their journey!
"Musically, Draugnim can be described as pagan metal with majestic atmosphere and melodies. Drawing inspiration from the harsh nature and northern folklore, the Finnish trio deal with such themes as decay, corruption, despair and death.
"Indeed, after releasing two major and magnificent albums, 'Northwind's Ire' (2008) and 'Horizons Low' (2010), the band is currently putting the final touch to their much awaited third opus."
The band comments on this upcoming material: "Great effort has been given to develop the sound even further to express what is the essence of Draugnim. The futile struggle against all curses of mortality as famine, pestilence and madness bring nations and gods to ruin. Songs range from raw shamanistic pagan rites to more atmospheric pieces of grief unsung. So leads on our crooked path.."
