So "worldwide" is now North and South America?
So behold the flight of the sapphire dragon
soaring through the skies once again

I didn't know they are popular in America
Love them so much and waiting for a new album!

From an American point of view, I guess.

Excellent news! There has been a lot of albums that I have enjoyed this year so I completely forgot they were due for a new one! I hope it mixes the orchestral bombast of Slovo with the overall coherence and consistency of Goi, Rode, Goi.

For me, anyway, Arkona is the ultimate folk metal band. They have serious songs that embody the Russian "toska" (sadness/longing); they have fun pit anthems like Yarilo and Vyjdu Ja na Voljushku; and above all they remain true to Russian folk music roots.
