This morning, Ukrainians Khors unveiled more details about their long-awaited upcoming album. Here’s an extract of the band’s statement:
Our 7th full-length Where the Word Acquires Eternity is a concept album dedicated to the events that took place in our native city of Kharkiv in the 30s of the XX century – the times called Renaissance of Ukrainian culture. By that time, in the end of 1920s, a residential multi-storey house was built by cooperative of writers. Externally the house was built in the shape of the letter С and was named Будинок “Слово” (a House “Word”).
In a nutshell, this will be an album about Ukrainian modern history. And since Kharkiv was never in the spotlight in all the related books I read about, I am really looking forwards to it. I truly hope there will be lyrics translations!
Their latest EP Beyond the Bestial already offered a generous glimpse of their new sound. Where the Word Acquires Eternity will be released in September 2020, on the marvelous label Ashen Dominion.
