0 Comment


On April 1st, 2016, Finnish pagan metal act MOONSORROW will release its brand-new, seventh studio album ‘Jumalten Aika’ – which means ‘The Age Of Gods’ in English – via Century Media Records. The limited edition 2CD formats come with a strictly limited patch as well as a bonus disc including cover versions of GRAVE’s ‘Soulless’ and also ROTTING CHRIST’s ‘Non Serviam’, for which the band just launched a static video.

MOONSORROW’s Henri Sorvali comments: “WE DO NOT SERVE.

Everyone in Moonsorrow has been a great Rotting Christ-fan since the early 90´s and with our version of this song we wanted not only to honour the band but also give the credit how much we have been influenced by them throughout our history. With our hails and deepest respect to our brothers in Hellas, we proudly present our interpretation of their creation: Non Serviam.”

ROTTING CHRIST frontman Sakis Tolis comments: “The Non Serviam dictum is more topical than ever nowadays and we are more than honored, that the Great Finish Pagan Metal Warriors, Moonsorrow, have honored it and gave their own vision on how our early 90’s song can also sound nowadays. We all in the band find their creation amazing and we send our respect to the north. Keep the spirit alive!”
