Last year, Ignea took the gold medal in our favorite albums list with the breathtaking The Realms of Fire and Death LP. Since then, the Ukrainian progressive metal act signed to Napalm Records with plans of a follow-up record slated for 2022.
In the meantime as I await their next full-length release, the band has teamed up with Ukraine-based melodic death metallers Ersedu for a split EP. Dropping on October 21, Bestia is a conceptual album about the mythological creatures. You can hear “Bosurkan” below and “Mermaids” on streaming services. Also, check out the tracklisting below.
