This is a special mixtape in anticipation of Asgardsrei V festival, which will take place in Kiev, Ukraine on the 18th of December. Many of the bands playing and present have been covered by Black Ivory Tower over the years, so we wish to celebrate this coming together of legendary metal artists with a mixtape featuring selected songs by Peste Noire, Moloth, Nokturnal Mortum, Kroda and Wehrwolf.
"...To Vladivostok" is a musical journey from Eastern Europe to the Russian Far East.
We start in Lithuania and Belarus (historically united in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania) before moving on to the European territories of Russia, while also making a brief stop in Ukraine. In Russia, we go from the Arctic cities of Murmansk and Arkhangelsk down to Moscow and into the Siberian heartlands surrounding Krasnoyarsk. Our final stop is beyond the borders of Mongolia, in the Russian Far East. An epilogue captures the spirit shared by many of the visited territories, and recalls a brief memory of what once was, way back in the West of Europe.

From Dublin... offers a collection of songs from Ireland, England and Scotland, as interpreted by Irish, British and American artists across several generations.
The idea for this new mixtape was inspired by All and one, together, for home, a double CD of collected folk songs by metal artists. Particularly Winterfylleth's contribution was impressive, hence two of their songs being featured on this mixtape.
In addition to classic Irish artists such as The Dubliners and Luke Kelly, this mixtape also features a few songs from the more obscure discography of Tomás Ó Canainn.
1. Tomás Ó Canainn - Francey (0:00)
2. Luke Kelly - The night visiting song (1:11)
3. The Dubliners - Weila Woila (4:35)
4. Winterfylleth - John Barleycorn (8:18)
5. Tomás Ó Canainn - The groves of Glanmire (15:34)
6. Halfpence and Haypenny - Ferryman's daughter- Rug Mhuire Mac do Dhia (18:19)
7. Luke Kelly - Foggy dew (1966 version) (22:47)
