Paganland Releasing New Album in March
We were sent this background on the band: Paganland was founded in 1997 by Ruen and Bilozor in Lviv – one of the most beautiful Ukrainian cities, whose developed traditions incorporated the European cultural spirit of the last millennium, and every stone breathes with centuries-old history of decline and revival, wars and temporary rest.
The natural mysticism hidden in the Carpathians' greatness, the dense woods, and pure mountain sources could not but affect musicians with a pagan outlook.
Therefore, Paganland's debut demo Gods of Golden Circle (1999) and the demo Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (2004), one way or another, had been nearly related to pagan metal.
The line-up changes, routine of rehearsals, and hardships of concert activity caused Paganland's breakup in 2005, but three years later, the group re-formed and in 2011 recorded the first full-length album, Wind Of Freedom, having resumed their concert activity.
