Arkona--Yav   (Napalm  Record} 
Russia's  Arkona    have  released  their new  cd  Yav through the mighty  Napalm Rec. Yav  is  defintly   their  best  work to  date mixing in metal and  folk  infuences together.Masha "scream" does the vocals for the band  and what  a great  vocalist  she is  she mixes  in clean  singing  with some  whispering type of  vocals  and  even some  growls and screams.The band  has never  sounded better mixing in some fast to mid paced metal  with a lot of  folk and pagan  instruments.If your  a fan of Arkona   then definitely pick this one up  as soon as  possible.
