Paganland was founded in 1997 by Ruen and Bilozor in Lviv, an Ukrainian city. The natural mysricism hidden in the Carpathian’s greatness, the dense woods, and pure mountain sources could not but affect musicians with a pagan outlook (or what did you think with the name Paganland). Therefore, Paganland’s debut demo “Gods Of Golden Circle” an the demo “Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors”, one way or another, had been related to the pagan metal.
With a new line- up the band did about 15 years to record this album. The Songs are handling about the Ukrainian history, and they sound all the same, intro, noise, outro. Through every song you can hear a keyboard, but that’s an addition that doesn’t bring anything extra into the songs.
For fans of pagan metal a cool new band to check them out. But for me: it’s just not my cup of thee.
