DRUDKH have chosen to release their latest creative outburst in a string of split-EPs. For their first cooperation the Ukrainian underground black metal veterans have joined forces with legendary Norwegians HADES ALMIGHTY. Mastermind Roman Sayenko has drawn lyrical inspiration for the two tracks from the poetry of Ukrainian writer Volodymyr Svidzins'kyi (1885-1941), who was murdered by the Soviets after years of censorship and repression. Musically the two tracks "Golden Horse" and "Fiery Serpent" rank among the finest of DRUDKH's works combining raw harshness, epic melodies and excellent songwriting skills into black metal masterpieces.
