Into The Void With Moonsorrow


New track out now

Finnish pagan metal act MOONSORROW have launched an epic video for their brand-new track ‘Suden Tunti’ (The Hour Of The Wolf), which is taken off their upcoming new album ‘Jumalten Aika’.

“This is the shortest song we’ve done in more than ten years!” comments Ville Sorvali. “It has all the elements that make it a Moonsorrow track but it’s still something we hadn’t done before. This is the dark side of folk metal – the epic battle of Fenris and Odin from a new perspective.”

“This is the day we never thought would come. We never thought we would release an official Moonsorrow music video,” adds Mitja Harvilahti. “Writing music without compromises is hard enough. Making a video that catches the same spirit without compromises and awkward moments that takes away the credibility is even harder! We had a thought for some time that only an animated video with enough artistic flavour would work. Since Suden Tunti is somewhat based on actual myths it was possible to create the world where the script takes place!”

MOONSORROW’s seventh studio album ‘Jumalten Aika’ – which means ‘The Age Of Gods’ in English – will be released on April 1st, 2016 via Century Media Records. The limited edition 2CD formats come with a strictly limited patch as well as a bonus disc including cover versions of GRAVE’s ‘Soulless’ and ROTTING CHRIST’s ‘Non Serviam’.
