Zgard Announces "Contemplation" Album Release

Svarga Music has set June 23rd as the international release date for Zgard's "Contemplation" album, which will be released in a regular jewel-case CD version and a digipack version limited to 100 copies. The label also comments:

"For the past four years, one-man Ukrainian band Zgard has been patiently developing an intensely personal vision of pagan-oriented black metal. Now, with the release of fourth album Contemplation, Zgard mastermind Yaromisl has perfected his craft, showing a rawer yet no-less-grandiose side that vividly illustrates the Carpathian mysticism at the heart of that craft.

"Compared to its celebrated predecessors, 2012's Reclusion and 2013's Astral Glow, ZGard here go for an atmosphere that's less cosmic and more organic, stirring both bloodlust and majesty within the listener as Yaromisl guides each of the seven tracks along an epic path. As always, the native folk touches are at the forefront but never threaten to overwhelm. As a title, then, Contemplation is more than fitting."

The track listing is:

1. Highlands
2. Through the Forest
3. Incarnation Memory
4. Wedge of Cranes
5. Silence
6. Contemplation
7. Underworld Bells
