Dun Ringill release new music video for “The Door”

Of what started as a dark and doomy side-project with Nordic folk influences, should become something bigger: When The Order of Israfel took a one year break from September 2017, the rhythm section Patrik Andersson Winberg (bass) and drummer Hans Lilja (also in Lotus) grabbed the chance to create new music again together with Patrik’s old band mate from the Doomdogs era, Tomas Eriksson (Intoxicate and ex Grotesque).

Eluveitie release music video for first single “Ategnatos”

We all wade through archetypes. We all are archetypes. Distant echoes of a life both primeval and noble. To embrace these archetypes, to accept them not only as a part of life but as life itself is what some may call enlightenment, some peace of mind.

“Ategnatos” will be release on April 5th, 2019, via Nuclear Blast.
