Russian extreme symphonic metal band Arcane Grail released the digital edition of their second album, Arya Marga — Ninefold Path to the Innocence, through the UK based label Hunter's Moon Records.
Arya Marga — Ninefold Path to the Innocence is a concept album that showcases a combination of styles including symphonic and black metal, male screams and growls and female soprano with majestic choirs and orchestrations. The lyrics illustrate a philosophical concept based around Buddhism, in which human life must go through nine acts, leading mankind towards Enlightenment and finding Nirvana.
The album was recorded between July and November 2008 and was released in 2009, receiving distribution throughout Russia, Europe and the US. Now, in 2010, it has also been released on iTunes and other digital platforms.
