Here is the final poster for Stockholm Slaughter 2018 after the line-up changes (ENTOMBED A.D. added to it!) and the shitty political intervention due to which the shows of MARDUK and TAAKE had to be moved to a different venue.

Once you get to the mighty metal mecca Stockholm, make sure to visit the legendary record store Sound Pollution and all the local metal bars you could. Also try to find time to go to “Skogskyrkogården”, Stockholm’s Forest Cemetery, hosting the famous stone cross so to take picture in front of it just like Entombed as seen in their “Left Hand Path” album!

We are proud to be part of this event as we have few metalheads from Bulgaria attending. Our country is among the nearly 30 countries presented at the festival this year at it’s second edition! Now that’s a great job, District 19!

Cheers and see you for some serious headbang this weekend!

ARKONA unveil details about their upcoming album “Khram”

“Khram”, is the Russian word for temple – and the upcoming title of ARKONA‘s hotly anticipated, eighth studio album, set to be released on January 19th 2018 via Napalm Records.

A “Khram” is a temple shrouded in natural mysticism slumbering behind nocturnal treetops, yet open to everyone. The sincerity and depth that binds all five band members together resonates in the sumptuously dark cover artwork and leading lady Masha`s lyrics that are written in her own blood (which is also part of the artwork)! ARKONA may have used sound samples in their early days, but nowadays cellos, brass parts, wind instruments and throat singing are recorded live meticulously and flow naturally into the band’s harsh metal tunes.
