A long time ago (1987) in a country far, far away (The Czech Republic) there was a black metal band by the name of Root who was caught somewhere between the first and second waves of black metal, making their own brand in the footsteps of Bathory and Venom. From 1990 to 2007 they quietly released eight full-lengths and a hand full of splits, DVDs and VHSs, and EPs. Root’s managed to stay buried in the underground despite being one of the greats, I know I wouldn’t have ever heard them had it not been for a good friend, so if this is the first you’ve seen their name, do yourself a favor and check out the 1992 album The Temple In The Underworld. Go, do it now, feel free to take the rest of the day off, your boss will understand and I’ll wait…
Now that introductions are out of the way, here’s the news: the mighty Root made the announcement today that they would be releasing a new album this year! Exciting stuff. The brand new full-length, to be titled Heritage of Satan, will be out as soon as this fall on Agonia Records. To make matters better, the new album is said to feature guest appearances from members of Watain, Aura Noir, and two tracks will even feature the recently healthy Adam "Nergal" Darski of Behemoth on vocals.
As soon as we know more, you’ll know more.
