Ukrainian Pagan Black Metal legends Ukraine Nokturnal Mortum have just released their latest full-length album, titled "До лунарної поезії". The album, which translates to "To Lunar Poetry", was released yesterday through long-time partners Oriana Music, who have collaborated with the band since 1998. To celebrate the release the entire album is now streaming online over at the BMP YouTube channel:


Nokturnal Mortum can trace their roots as far back as 1991 when they were founded in Kharkiv under the name Suppuration. They have come a long way since then, releasing a plethora of demos, EPs, splits and live albums in addition to their now eight full-length records, and becoming Ukraine's most established Black Metal act.

The band commented on what the new album means to them and how it relates to their 1996 "Lunar Poetry" demo:

Old Lunar Poetry demo holds a very special place in discography of Nokturnal Mortum. On one hand the quality of the songs released on this record in 1996 gained the attention of the whole scene back then. Many fans still wonder why it is labelled only as demo, while others simply praise it as pagan black metal at its best.

On other hand due to some technical aspects, mostly because of the loss of the lyrics and the absence of new keyboard arrangements, the band did not perform the fan favorites from Lunar Poetry during the last two decades.

The 25th anniversary of the demo became the most logical reason to bring the old songs back to life. To Lunar Poetry is a full-length album that contains the new versions of timeless classics from the demo that were written by the band (thus leaving in 1996 the material from other authors that was present of the demo).

Beyond this, new album brings forth the renewed Return of the Vampire Lord epic initially released in 1997 on the EP of the same name and new full-force intro composition. To Lunar Poetry marks the return of Nokturnal Mortum members from the 90’s both with fresh blood in recording line-up and the renewal of the music created in times of old with studio possibilities of today. To Lunar Poetry is a place where the past and the future of Nokturnal Mortum meet.

"До лунарної поезії" was mixed and mastered at Priory Recording Studios in Canwell UK over the course of winter 2021, and features the following tracklist:

  1. Зимні сни
  2. Лунарна поезія
  3. Перунове срібло небес
  4. Карпатські таємниці
  5. ...і зима постає
  6. Вампірів князь прийшов
  7. Прадавній рід
  8. Акт віри (Ода інакомисленню)
  9. Пращурів сни

The cover art was designed by Ukrainian artist Vyacheslav "Nurgeslag" Smeshko, who's work you might have already seen recently in the form of Rotting Christ's "The Heretics":
