MOONSORROW reveal cover, track-listing and release date of new album ‘Jumalten Aika’

DIMMU BORGIR - Eonian

On April 1st, 2016, Finnish pagan metal act MOONSORROW will release their brand-new, seventh studio album Jumalten Aika – which means ‘The Age Of Gods’ in English – via Century Media Records.

“There are a lot more folk music influences present in Jumalten Aika than earlier”,comments Henri Sorvali (Guitars, keyboards & vocals). “This time around, they are more deeply integrated to the overall sound. “Jumalten Aika” is like a circling wolf biting the hardest when you would never expect it. The music is unchained aggression, deep mysteries of the North and thundering witchcraft combined together in a molten forge of the Gods and reminds us all of something that never left our blood and soil.”

Jumalten Aika will be released in the following formats:

Ltd. 2CD Mediabook & Patch – European edition

Ltd. 2CD Digipak & Patch – US edition

Gatefold black 2LP+CD

Gatefold white 2LP+CD – CMDistro.de (EU webshop exclusive), limited to 100 copies

Gatefold transparent green 2LP+CD – Nuclearblast.de exclusive, limited to 200 copies

Gatefold clear 2LP+CD – distributed via RED in the US, limited to 400 copies

Gatefold silver 2LP+CD – CMDistro.com (US webshop exclusive), limited to 200 copies

CD / Digital

US pre-order coming soon! 

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”. These were intentionally added as a second disc to be separated from the main album’s intricate musical and lyrical concept. All physical formats will also include English translations of the lyrics to allow you to delve deeper into the darkened folklore of MOONSORROW.
