Pospolite Ruszenie reveals coverart

pospolite ruszenie pospolite ruszenie

Pospolite Ruszenie has completed their album and they can finally reveal the date of the long awaited full lenght simply entitled “Pospolite Ruszenie” – it will be available on 29 November! Folk-metal.nl is very curious about this album, their previous EP ‘Swiebodnosc’ was reviewed without a rating, because their was only one folk-metal-track on this EP. But this was a fine one, so we hope there will be more of that kind of stuff on the upcoming album.
It’s also a special day in Polish history – the anniversary of the November Uprising (1830–31), which was an armed rebellion against the Russian Empire. The uprising began on 29 November 1830 in Warsaw.

Pade (tin and low whistle and bagpipes) of the Swiss giants Eluveitie has left the band.
Eluveitie is at the moment in the middle of a tour and Matteo Sisti of Krampus is filling in the empty spot for the rest of the tour. And he’s doing a very fine job with this. Folk-metal.nl was present in Eindhoven and this was a hell of a show.
