Czech Republic Black Metal group ROOT have announced a new record via Agonia Records. Kärgeräs – Return From Oblivion will be released on November 25th. ROOT formed in 1987 and have been one of the leading black metal bands to influence the genre since. The record will also mark ROOT’s tenth album as a band. Kärgeräs – Return From Oblivion will also continue as a concept album, taking the lyrical content from Kärgeräs, the record release in 1996, and continuing from there.

In contrast to Bathory and Venom, ROOT took the black metal genre in a more refined direction, featuring Big Boss’ characteristic clean vocals, dark sound and an epic approach altogether. Nowadays, ROOT is often recognized as an epic heavy/black metal act, or as the band simply puts it – a dark metal band. The band said this about the upcoming record, “As always in our history as a band, we aim to deliver a unique album, something that will stand out and shine its own light in our discography. Expect dark metal at its best, along with some surprising elements. We’ve recorded one fully acoustic song and one entirely instrumental. Overall, the album will include ten new tracks that will differ from our previous records.”
