CD Review: Arkona-Decade of Glory(LIVE)Released March 1, 2013-Napalm Records




(Band's Bio)
The band discussed the new live album: "The work on the new live album of Arkona Decade Of Glory is done. It was, probably, one of the most great and ambitious projects for the last few years. 31 songs, 21 musicians on stage. We have not announced the beginning of work on this project, because we were not sure in our abilities, but now, when the work is done, we can tell, that most of the songs are much more serious and epic than albums versions. The great work done by Masha, who created new arrangements for chorus and orchestra, the performance of professional guest musicians, great equipment and concert venue helped to make our plan real."

What was said definitly helped scope the overall sound of this album-this band is fantastic even though I do not understand the lyrics the music is fantastic.
Here is a video below to give you an idea of the depth of this music, I really enjoy their sound.
This is my favorite song on the album.


This is the fantastic opportunities that I have being able to do this for all the labels/bands as I get to hear these bands that prior to doing this I never had the pleasure of hearing these bands.

Arkona (Russian: Аркона) is a Russian pagen metal band. Their lyrics are heavily influenced by Russian folklore and Slavic Mythology, and their music incorporates several traditional Russian musical instruments. The name of the band "Arkona" refers to the last pagan Slavic city-castle.

This is not hard to understand that this is certainly good overall music and the vocals are good as well.
They are coming to Vancouver next month I hope I have the pleasure of going to see them.


The overall feel of this album is that for me bands show their real talent when performing live they either have it or they don't -there are certain studio tricks that some use and clearly some that don't Heavy Metal is mostly known for not using studio tricks but who really knows?
