Arkona cannot wait to hit the road: North America, it’s time to come back and present you our latest album Khram! And we are glad to go on tour with our Finnish brothers from Korpiklaani! It for sure will be a night to remember, a night with a special atmosphere and spiritual union! We will have a full long set, you will hear our new songs and we will also play a big selection of the old classic songs. Save the date and see you in October-November 2018!”

Khram is the Russian word for temple – and is also the title of the eighth Arkona album. A Khram is a temple shrouded in natural mysticism slumbering behind nocturnal treetops, yet open to everyone. On Khram the band incorporates cellos, brass parts, wind instruments and throat singing, which are recorded live.  The album features king-sized songs that effortlessly shift from blackened pagan metal masterpieces to epic tracks with crystal-clear melodies and piano infusions. Khram is an exuberant and demanding affair that defies genre boundaries with untamable spirit.
