Deep melancholy and ancient longing permeates the heart and soul of Ukrainian music. DRUDKH capture that precious essence of sadness in their brand of Slavonic Pagan Metal. The cinematic, folk influenced music of “Microcosmos” focuses on luxuriant atmospheres charged with strong emotions. Lyrically DRUDKH delve into nature mysticism, the passing of seasons, philosophy, Ukrainian mythology, legends and history – often inspired by the works of nineteenth and twentieth century Ukrainian poets. Since their founding in Kharkiv in 2002 by creative figurehead Roman Saenko DRUDKH sold almost 30.000 albums of their back-catalogue – without any promotion! “Microcosmos” is the magical seventh album since their acclaimed debut “Forgotten Legends” (2003). Enter this realm of dark Slavonic melancholy!
