HOLY DRAGONS “Shadows Of The Past” (Heavy/Speed/Power Metal, Kazakhstan, 2022)

Jörmungandr - The Serpent of the World Album Front Cover

“Jörmungandr – The Serpent of the World” is the 16th album by the Kazakh band, the 5th released under the wings of Pitch Black Records. The album’s 12 songs gradually capture the listener with an arsenal made up of speed, melodies and solos. This is the second album with guitarist Thora Thorheim also handling vocal duties where she uses her voice as an addition to the instrumental background in such a way that it is quite unique and different from today’s usual female metal vocals (opera or growling style). Thorheim sings in a rather unrefined and harsh manner, making songs more raw and explosive and certainly more old-school. 


Chris “Thora Thorheim” Caine – Lead Vocals, Guitars
Jürgen “Stratomaniac” Thunderson – Guitar, Backing Vocals
Ivan Manchenko – Bass
Zabir Shamsutdinov – Drums
