That’s right, you knob goblins.

Candlelight Records has signed Ukrainian black metal heathens Khors. The band’s fifth album, Wisdom Of Centuries, will be released this September.

A press release claims the dense sound of the CD, which was recorded earlier this year, is harmoniously complemented with the addition of ethnic instruments, shrouded with a bewitching atmosphere of shamanic mysticism.

The album is also the first in the band’s history to be performed in their native language. Not sure how I feel about that move. I like to understand my metal, you know what I mean. It’s sort of the reason why I don’t dig on Dir En Grey.

“It has been a long and difficult way for us to finally reach this opportunity to show the world who we are and what we are stand for,” comments bassist Khorus. “We thank the Candlelight crew for giving us such an opportunity and we’re really very excited to be a part of the Candlelight roster.”

Here’s a little taste of what Khors sound like.
