Crimson Moonlight from the depths of Sweden was formed 1997 as an Old Schooled Black Metal project. After recording a demo during the summer of 1997 the band decided to go on and develop into a more melodic and symphonic direction. Now more than 20 years later the band has released four albums and played over 100 gigs in Europe and the US. Since 2011 the band is active with a mystical and explicit chaotic form of extreme metal. The music has the framework and concept of Eastern Mystical Theology, a mixture labeled as: Liturgical Black Metal of True Trinitarian Orthodoxy. In 2016 the band released their fourth full length album; Divine Darkness. (Endtime Productions). The album has got excellent reviews around the world and been described as dedicated, bestial and furious in the vein of Marduk, Mayhem and Dark Funeral. Last year new songs were recorded in the same, yet more brutal direction. Do not miss the change to experience Crimson Moonlight LIVE! There will be a show to remember!
“The more I hear “Divination,” the more I am excited about the music itself and Vukari in general. The plot of the album is sobering and a little terrifying when placed against modern times, and the music builds expertly from the tale’s seeds being planted to the cataclysmic ending. This is one of a handful of really great, eye-opening black metal albums that have come out this year, and it’s well worth your time to immerse yourself in this body, mind, and spirit. And you might even get a step ahead of so many other people by actually learning a little something from history.” – Meat Mead Metal
“Vukari is clearly a band that know what they’re doing in regards to operating within their genre, writing tracks that strike the proper balance between atmospheric and engaging, situated right at that rare point where the music is hypnotic yet still interesting to listen to and not something that just becomes background sound after a couple minutes. Where lots have tried to pull together the many intertwined threads of American black metal into a compelling, powerful album, Vukari is one of the few bands that has succeeded with flying colors, presenting a smorgasbord of sounds that all play off one another in kind, as well as just writing a damn good black metal album to boot.” –Heavy Blog is Heavy

We had been sullen
in the sweet air that’s gladdened by the sun;
we bore the mist of sluggishness in us:
now we are bitter in the blackened mud.
