Russia's ARKONA has inked a deal with Napalm Records. According to a press release, "the band's leader is the charismatic frontlady Masha Scream, who also writes all the music and lyrics, as well as delivering her fierce vocals. The band plays Slavic pagan metal and embellishes their versatile compositions with the use of folk instrumentation. The cover artwork was delivered by the legendary Kris Verwimp (THYRFING, MNEGARM) and the album itself, 'Ot Serdca K Nebu' ('From the Heart to the Sky'), will be released on July 4 to most certainly take the hearts of pagan metal fans everywhere by storm."
