ARKONA returns after three long years and finally releases the new album "Yav". The Russian warriors revolving around the impressive frontlady Masha "Scream" Arkhipova have perfected their unique style. Like never before, the band interweaves brutal Metal riffs, pounding drums and folk melodies, the latter played mostly on authentic and medieval instruments. Sweeping and profound songs, epic compositions and dream-like atmospheres create the distinctive and enthralling sound of ARKONA. "Yav" offers 70 minutes of original, majestic and unique Pagan Folk Metal, and will crown ARKONA king!
