Kauan Signs With Blood Music To Release "Pirut"

Kauan has inked a record deal with Blood Music to release the "Pirut" album. The following press release was issued about the signing:

"Blending shimmering post-rock -- reminiscent of Godspeed! You Black Emperor -- with the funeral dirges of Evoken, Russia's Kauan has received a huge amount of praise in the European underground 'for a long time', which also happens to be the translation of their Finnish name.

"Now the band has inked a pact with Finland's Blood Music, which sees the band beginning their first journey into the worldwide metal scene as they plot to release 'Pirut', their 5th overall full-length, on December 15th.

"Often compared to Agalloch and Alcest, Kauan has spent several years creating a take on the genre all their own. Often atmospheric, 'Pirut' finds the band based in viola, choirs, slow piano melodies but with a doom metal base. An almost classical approach to metal that is sure to bring the band an instant following -- be on the lookout for music from 'Pirut' debuting in the coming weeks.

"Blood Music, to this point, has been known as one of the top vinyl labels for the metal underground in Finland, releasing incredibly detailed LP sets from Strapping Young Lad, Ihsahn, Sigh, Moonsorrow and more. The label has recently partnered with Code666 for distribution and now has it's sights set on also releasing new music from some of the best underground bands in the metal world."
