"As friends, brothers and the 'legio linteata' we announce our decision today to bring to an end the experience that is Draugr.
Having arrived at the threshold of 2014, we decided to bring to a close this chapter in our lives which has been so important to us, in order that we may follow different artistic paths.
We thank all those who have taken part in the project over the years, and especially the fans for their support.
Our last show will take place on December 22 in Pescara and we will shortly be revealing more details about it."
The decision is seemingly entirely amicable.
Draugr’s debut album, Nocturnal Pagan Supremacy, was released through Christhunt Productions in 2006. Keyboards were added to the band in 2007, creating the much more epic feel which Draugr describes as “Italic hordish metal”. The sophomore album, De Ferro Italico, appeared on To React Records in 2011. Today’s lineup includes Nemesis on vocals, Triumphator and Mors on guitar, Ursus Arctos on keyboards, Stolas on bass and Jonny on drums.
Draugr will perform their final gig on December 22, 2013 in Pescara at Tipografia. Two support bands are going to play at this concert: Shores of Null and Dewfall.
