It's been five years since Moonsorrow released Varjoina kuljemme kuolleiden maassa and the only Moonsorrow-related news we've had to really report in the interim was an insane vinyl box set from Blood Music in 2014. So finally, barring this being an elaborate April Fools joke, Moonsorrow has announced that it'll be releasing Jumalten aika, or The Age of Gods in English, on April 1 via Century Media.
Here's what frontman, guitarist and keyboardist Henri Sorvali had to say!
"There are a lot more folk music influences present in Jumalten aika than earlier. 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."
The album will be five songs long, and there will be a 2CD version as well containing covers of "Soulless" by Grave and "Non Serviam" by Rotting Christ.
