Percival Schuttenbach | Svantevit
In 1168 Danish king Waldemar invaded and burnt the last Slavic temple. Together with Arkona falling – the Svantevit cult center – Polabian tribe existence came to an end. They were forgotten for a few hundred years. Percival Schuttenbach, after 845 years, reminded of this Slavic tribe whose settlements were the first victims of Christianisation brought by West European rulers.
“Svantevit” is a concept album and mixes together – in very interesting way – folk and metal music. A lot of guests can be heard on the album – like for example Masha “Scream” Archipova from Arkona and other musicians connected, more or less, with folk-metal music and reenactment.
