Doom metal band Kauan have revealed the cover art and album details for their fifth album Pirut. The Russian/Ukrainian outfit's new album is due for pre-order on October 23rd through Finnish label Blood Music. Pirut (translated as "Devils") showcases a single 39-minute long track, "twisting the band's traditional melancholic post-rock beauty into something much more sinister and operatic." You can take a look at the cover below.

In February, 2013, while the band was mixing the album in their hometown of Chelyabinsk, Russia, an asteroid entered the Earth's atmosphere and crashed into the area. This caused production delays and put a hold on finishing the album, until the band was certain that they and their family members had not contracted radiation poisoning. The experience of the meteor was the main inspiration for the album's cover and inner artwork. The run will have a limited high-quality digipak CD pressing, as well as an ultra-limited high-quality vinyl pressing.




"The band continues in its challenging tradition of singing exclusively in poetic Finnish, the only known non-native-speaking band outside of Finland to attempt lyrics in the unique Nordic language, one of the most complex in the world."

No, not because "an asteroid entered the Earth's atmosphere and crashed into the area" moved me to check out this album but it's because of "its challenging tradition of singing exclusively in poetic Finnish....to attempt lyrics in the unique Nordic language, one of the most complex in the world".

i gotta keep an eye on this.

Will definitely check this one out. On Facebook they said it'll be a mix of post-rock and funeral doom, which sounds very interesting to me.
