Music News: HAIDUK to Release New Album

From the PR wire…

HAIDUK, the one-man blackened death metal project of Luka Milojica, has announced the release of their 4th full-length album. Anticipated for summer/fall of 2021, the album will feature 11 new songs, tying together the dark lore of the previous HAIDUK albums and incorporating new maps, stories, illustrations, and timelines. Mastering will take place in the black metal Mecca, Gothenburg, Sweden, by Robert Kukla from Obsidian Studios / Studio Fredman.

Milojica describes the music on the new album as “pure evil, speed, and darkness.”

HAIDUK have previously released 4 albums, including their initial demo. Plagueswept (2010), cemented the diverse and unique blend of death, thrash,  black metal, and lots of guitars.

Working in solitude, HAIDUK unveiled their full-length debut Spellbook in 2012. Not a concept album in the strictest sense, each song follows a black-magic theme, focusing on a particular spell while conjuring fast guitars and powerful riff attacks.

Invoking spells of demonic strength, HAIDUK raised forces from the infernal depths, sealing arcane powers into 2015’s Demonicon; a blackened tome of blasting distortion. And chanting words of astral terror, Haiduk became the Exomancer (2018) – summoner of cosmic darkness.

The name HAIDUK, of Serbian origins, means “someone who retreats into the forests when his country is under invasion in order to resist capture and continue fighting.” With each release, HAIDUK strives to live up to the valor and fortitude their name implies.
