Armenian pagan Black dark metal band ILDARUNI have released a play-through video for track “Perpetual Vigil“, which is recorded at Vibrographus Studios. The Armenian group is fresh with their debut album Beyond Unseen Gateways, the album received great scores from all over the world and landed on bandcamp best selling black metal albums, and premiered via Black Metal Promotion last Friday (selling out from the label store within an hour). Watch the new play-through video for “Perpetual Vigil” below.
ILDARUNI emerged as a raging force from the depths of the Armenian underground metal scene in the year 2016. Solidifying a permanent lineup, the Yerevan band set its focus on live performances and started recording the first demo, “Towards Subterranean Realms“, which came to light in July 2018 and met significant acclamation.
Musically, ILDARUNI represents a blend of relentless, epic black metal and ancient folk melodies, forgotten from times immemorial. The lyrical themes explore the height of the Urartian domain through the cognitive machinations of a bygone age and the esoteric apprehension of ancient pagan occultism.
The album Beyond Unseen Gateways was recorded by Armen Shahverdi and Mark Erskine at Guitar Clinic Studio in Armenia. Then it was mixed and mastered by George Emmanuel (Lucifer’s Child, and ex-Rotting Christ) at Pentagram Studio in Greece, while Erskine Designs crafted the artwork and layout, perfectly capturing the essential concept of the album.
