MOONSORROW and WOLFCHANT are the first two confirmed bands for the Ultima Ratio Festival, set to take place November 3 at Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen, Germany.For more information, visit www.ultimaratio-festival.de. MOONSORROW will release its new album, "Viides Luku – Hävitetty", in North America on April 17 via Unruly Sounds/The End Records. The CD — 56 minutes of music comprised from two songs — continues to place the group as one of the forerunners of the folk/viking metal scene due in part to their extensive use of folklore and pagan elements in their music and imagery. Released in Europe in January, "Viides Luku - Hävitetty" entered the German national chart at position No. 72. The CD was recorded between May and August 2006 at Tico Tico and The Stable studios and was mixed by Ahti Kortelainen and Henri Sorvali. Mastering duties were handled by Mika Jussila. MOONSORROW recently completed a mini-tour in Canada and plans to return to tour this album in North America sometime this year.
