Draugr Calling It Quits, Announces Final Show

In the same year that pagan black metal outfit Draugr is celebrating its tenth anniversary, the Italian band has decided to call it a day. Draugr issued the following statement about the split up:

“As friends, brothers and the 'legio linteata' we announce our decision today to bring to an end the experience that is Draugr.

"Having arrived at the threshold of 2014, we decided to bring to a close this chapter in our lives which has been so important to us, in order that we may follow different artistic paths. We thank all those who have taken part in the project over the years, and especially the fans for their support. Our last show will take place on December 22 in Pescara and we will shortly be revealing more details about it."

Draugr's debut album “Nocturnal Pagan Supremacy” was released on Christhunt Productions in 2006. Keyboards were added to the band in 2007, creating the much more epic feel which Draugr describes as “Italic hordish metal.” The sophomore album, “De Ferro Italico,” appeared on To React Records in 2011. Today’s line up includes Nemesis on vocals, Triumphator and Mors on guitars, Ursus Arctos on keyboards, Stolas on bass, and Jonny on drums.
