Paragon Records is proud to announce the release of Return To Abandoned, the long-awaited new full-length from Ukrainian black metal horde Khors.
The official press release adds that, on Return To Abandoned Khors yield harsher, brooding sounds of their earlier work whilst mixing in the melancholy and spacious atmosphere of 2008's unsung dark black gem Mysticism. Inarguably the most majestic journey the band has taken its listeners on thus far, Return To Abandoned will appeal to old and new fans alike.
Khors was formed by former Astrofaes bassist, Khorus, in August 2004, with an aim to create gloomy, powerful, atmospheric black metal. Sometime later, guitarist/vocalist Helg (Runes Of Dianceht) and drummer Khaoth (Tessaract, ex-Astrofaes, ex-Hate Forest) joined the fold. The band was later rounded out by guitarist Warth. Contrary to rumors, Khors is not attached to any politically motivated groups or extremists.
Earlier this Fall, Paragon reissued The Flames Of Eternity's Decline and Cold, Khors' now classic first two full-lengths - originally released in 2005 and 2006 respectively - as a two-CD set with new layout, nine bonus tracks and a rare early video from the band.
