Ūkanose Released New Album
Coming from the last Pagan nation in Europe, Ūkanose takes their country’s folklore and combines it with the heaviness of metal music to create a unique Folk Metal sound. To this day Lithuanian people relate very strongly to the old ways and the heathenish worldviews, which has let them preserve many ancient tales and songs that Ūkanose exploits in their works.
Baltic folk metal band Ūkanose will release their new album, “Šiaurum Vėjum” today. The band hails from Lithuania, the last pagan nation in Europe, and they sing in one of the oldest living languages in the world. Their music combines the rich cultural heritage of Lithuanian folklore with the raw energy of heavy metal, resulting in a unique and captivating folk metal sound.
The Lithuanian people have a deep connection to their ancestral roots and pagan beliefs, and this is reflected in Ūkanose’s music. The band draws inspiration from ancient tales and songs that have been passed down through generations, and their music is a celebration of the country’s heathenish worldview.
Despite being around for over a decade, Ūkanose has a relatively small discography, and they are known more for their powerful live performances than their studio recordings. But now there is “Šiaurum Vėjum”.
“Šiaurum Vėjum” features nine songs in the archaic Lithuanian language, which adds to the authenticity and cultural richness of the band’s music. Fans of folk metal and those interested in exploring new musical horizons will no doubt be eagerly awaiting the album’s release.
Overall, Ūkanose’s new album promises to be an exciting and engaging addition to the folk metal genre, showcasing the unique sound and rich cultural heritage of Lithuania.
“Plėšikėliai” (Petty Muggers) is one of their oldest songs from all that are going to be included in the album and it tells a tale of a gang of bandits who go on to rob a greedy priest in order to fund their habit of partying and drinking. In this lyric video, the bandits are portrayed as Ūkanose band members themselves.
