SELVANS - Former Members Of Draugr Launch Selvans And Debut Track From Upcoming Release

A year ago almost to the day, pagan black metallers Draugr called it a day after an illustrious ten-year career that saw the band, whose music paid tribute to their Pagan ancestors, firmly at the top of the genre in Italy, and with a solid and ever-growing following world-wide. It is fitting, therefore, that some of Draugr's original members have chosen this time to announce the launch of their new band - Selvans. But it is a bitter-sweet moment because, in a line-up that includes Selvans Haruspex (Ursus Arctos of Draugr) on vocals, keyboards and traditional instruments, Sethlans Fulguriator (Mors of Draugr) on guitars, and Draugr co-founder Stolas on bass, one very important member is missing - drummer and Draugr co-founder Jonny Morelli, who was tragically killed in a motor bike accident in June of last year. With a new website and Facebook page launched yesterday, Selvans have today debuted a digital single edit of a track that is originally over 9 minutes in length and which will appear in its entirety on the EP that the band hopes to release in 2015. This EP marks the last ever appearance of Morelli, who recorded all of the drum tracks and most of the vocals before his death, and in whose honour the EP is being released. The track, "Lupercale", is available for free download at Bandcamp. Listen to it below. Selvans Haruspex made the following statement yesterday where he talked about the new band and the impact of Morelli's death, check it out over HERE. Link
