Debutní album mladé nadějné ruské pagan black metalové kapely.
Debut full-length album by LUTOWRAT (Tomsk, Russia) is a kind of compilation summarizing three years of bands existence. The band plays heathen metal – a combination of fury and speed of black metal with atmosphere and melodiousness characteristic of pagan metal. The lyrics are based on sagas about the ancient heroes and gods of the Baltic Sea region along with anticlerical and pagan subjects. The album begins with bass intro plunging listeners into the dark atmosphere of the early medieval pre-christian Baltic Sea region. The intro is followed by the squall of guitar riffs and blastbeats alternating with melodic lines and atmospheric guitar picking. The most songs on the album can be characterized by tough black metal guitar riffing and angry truculent screaming. The CD also includes a cover version of "Ulfhednir Todesschwadron" originally performed by Teutonic knights from ABSURD. LUTOWRAT play their interpretation of this song on each show paying homage to the band whose music has become the most influential for their own style!
