The Russian folk-doom outfit KAUAN has recently finished recording their 5th album in Kiev, Ukraine, and traveled to their home of Chelyabinsk, Russia, for mixing, when the city was attacked by a hailstorm of meteorites, whose power was 30x that of an atomic bomb!
The band has put the new record on hold and are currently staying at home to ensure that neither them nor family members have suffered radiation poisoning, which may make this the first album ever delayed by meteorite explosions.
The name of the new album will be PIRUT, which translates (from Finnish) as DEVILS. It will be a single, 40-minute long song, which they describe as "a stone-faced blend of neo-classical and funeral doom metal." The album will be released towards the end of 2013 on Finnish record label BLOOD MUSIC.
