Unconventional, dramatic and mysterious, Ukrainian black metal outfit Drudkh are announcing a new album called Eternal Turn of the Wheel out February 24. The new album "marks a return to the band's roots and early sound," according to Season Of Mist, the French label that has been releasing Drudkh's albums since 2009. Their last full-length was 2010's Handful of Stars, which we reviewed here.
Given the announcement by Season Of Mist, we can expect the new album to sound more like the band's debut 2003 album Forgotten Legends.
This has also been a busy year for Drudkh's side project Old Silver Key, a band that also includes the talents of Alcest's Neige. Their album Tales of Wanderings came out in September this year, and below you can see a fan-made video for the track "About Which An Old House Dreams."
