On 25 June “Wolfbite”, the new album by the German Celtic Death Metallers SUIDAKRA, will be released! With a playing time of over 45 minutes, the 9 songs are bursting with power, uncompromisingness and joy of playing. Together with the proven story concept from the “Realms Of Odoric” cosmos, lyrically and visually realised by Kris Verwimp, of course, the band presents itself musically in a form that should delight both old and new fans.To shorten the wait for the release and to give their fans a taste of the new album in advance, “Resurgence” is now available on the MDD Youtube channel as a foretaste of the band’s 14th longplayer. Check it out! The final tracklist of the album you find below.
23 years have passed since the release of SUIDAKRA‘s debut album “Lupine Essence”, which should be the starting point of an adventurous and unique career. After the album has been virtually nowhere available for years it is time to breathe new life into this gem! “Lupine Essence” will be rereleased on November 20th. The original 8 tracks of the debut were completely remastered by Arkadius himself for the re-release on CD! Additionally there are 6 bonus tracks from different re-recordings, which are partly still unreleased. In the booklet you will also find extra Linar Notes by Arkadius, which give an insight into the history of this debut.
Furthermore “Lupine Essence” is also released on vinyl for the first time! In this case it is the 7 original album recordings and the two previously unreleased rerecorded versions of “And A Mistrel…” and “Sheltering Dreams”. Since the original 1997 artwork is no longer available in a printable version, a version of Jesus Lhysta/Rotted Artist, which is close to the original, was created especially for this re-release. The album is available as CD and vinyl (in three different colours) as well as an exclusive bundle with various gimmicks in the MDD Shop as PreOrder!

On the occasion of their anniversary album “Echoes Of Yore”SUIDAKRA release a brand new video clip for the song “Morrigan”. The shooting took place last month in Hamburg under the direction of director and producer David Thehlen. The video, which deals with the Celtic goddess of war Morrigan, is together with “Balor” probably the darkest video in the band’s history.
Singer and guitarist Arkadius Antonik is very enthusiastic: “Katinka Melancholia has created an incredibly good costume and mask for us and we had two actors for the story on set in addition to the band recordings. Jana has applied by our call at Facebook with us. We decided for her, because her charisma made her perfect for the role of Morrigan. Both actors mastered their performance fantastically!”
The anniversary album “Echoes Of Yore” of the German Celtic Metal flagship SuidAkrA, on which the band Re-recorded 10 classics of their first albums, will be released on November 15th.
With “Lays From Afar” (from the same titled album from 1999), the first taster is now available as a lyric video on Youtube. Enclosed you also will find the complete tracklist of the album.
