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 Heathen 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. "Microcosmos" is the magical seventh album since their acclaimed debut "Forgotten Legends" (2003).
