More Info:

Drakon - High Tales - The new release of the powerful Russian black metallers DRAKON! DRAKON was born in 2017 as collaboration between Veleyar (guitar, music) and Terror (vocals, bass). In this tandem, in 2017, the first album "First" was released, consisting of 5 author songs and cover of the Polish black metal band Mgla's song. "First" was published as self-released album, mixed by Anton Moskalenko, with lyrics written by Alena "Al D Vil" Velichinskaya. After the release of debut album the line-up split, and Terror released the instrumental EP "The Last Battle of Angels" in the same 2017, after which the project was frozen. In the fall of 2021 Veleyar has resurrected DRAKON. They released their 2nd album, called "Awakening" and many professional session musicians are involved. The album is thematically dedicated to the Spiritual Revival of Man and Russian Motherland, through the prism of worship of the Forces of Nature. After the release of "Awakening", the band immediately began work on the EP album "High Tales". It includes 5 songs, two of which are cover versions by Unanimated and Enslaved. The band states: "It's lyrically a concept, and even covers for two different Scandinavian bands, seemingly thematically distant from each other, are successfully woven into this common eschatological outline of the entire material. Through reflections on the place of our people in the universe, our fate and role, skaldically-like we tell in new songs, linking them with a common meaning, a parable-warning about the impending end of the world, Ragnarok, the destruction of all life, while saying that this is the purpose of all our human race and irreversible inevitability. Only we must fight and die proudly, with honor, like gods and real warriors. Or maybe survive at the cost of a lot, in order to be cleansed of the dirt of the outgoing circle of time and become stronger, wiser and brighter." "High Tales" is scheduled for worldwide release on April 7, 2023 through Sleaszy Rider SRL. The new release of the powerful Russian black metallers DRAKON!
