ROOT - Premiere new song "Life Of Demon"
Legendary Czech dark metallers ROOT premiere new song "Life Of Demon" in anticipation of their upcoming album "Kärgeräs - Return From Oblivion", set to be released on November 25th via Agonia. Listen to the album's opening track at:
ROOT is one of the original pre-second-wave black metal bands formed in 1987 by iconic vocalist Jiri 'Big Boss' Valter. In contrast to Bathory and Venom, ROOT took the black metal genre in a more refined direction, featuring Big Boss' chartacteristic clean vocals, dark sound and an epic approach altogether. Nowadays, ROOT is often recognized as an epic heavy/black metal act, or as the band simply puts it - a dark metal band.
The new album, "Kärgeräs - Return From Oblivion", will be different from their 2011's offering, "Heritage Of Satan", says the band: "As always in our history as a band, we aim to deliver a unique album, something that will stand out and shine its own light in our discography. Expect dark metal at its best, along with some surprising elements. We've recorded one fully acoustic song and one entirely instrumental. Overall, the album will include ten new tracks that will differ from our previous records".
"Kärgeräs - Return From Oblivion" will be ROOT's tenth full-length album. Lyrically, it will be a concept album, and looked at from that perspective, it'll continue the story begun by their 1996 release under a similar yet shorter title, "Kärgeräs", that presents a tale of a pround nation.
