HAIDUK, the Calgary, AB one man thrashing black and death metal project fronted by Luka Milojica is proud to announce his return to the studio to record a nine track follow up album to 2012’s break through debut full length ‘Spellbook‘, which received international acclaim including a mention on Hellbound’s Top Canadian Albums of 2012 . The forthcoming release will be another concept ‘book‘ album with a strong underlying theme to each song plus will see the creation and inclusion of a map based on a fantasy world of Haiduk’s themes. The mixing and mastering will be done by Robert Kukla (Arbitrator) plus album artwork done by Gragoth, both whom previously worked on ‘Spellbook‘. The album is set for a tentative release date during summer 2015.
“Haiduk has only gotten darker, faster, and more pissed off! From a guitar standpoint the new riffs are busier and more intricate than ever. You’ll see many elements of “Spellbook” here but also an evolution of the style towards ever-more bizarre, diabolical guitarwork. The recording will focus on instrumental precision and creating a gloomy, blackened atmosphere to pull you into my dark fantasy world.” comments Luka Milojica.

Emerging from the cold forests of Canada, Haiduk is a death metal solo-project created by guitarist Luka Milojica. Aggressive and dark, the sound of Haiduk is a direct channeling of haunting musical ideas from composer to listener, as the conceptualization, writing, and execution of the music is a solitary process. Free from outside influence, the songs lure the listener towards themes of magic, evil, nature and myth.
Forging ahead in solitude, Haiduk has unleashed two releases, the raw, bone-chilling 8-song demo “Plagueswept” in 2010 followed by the full-length debut “Spellbook” in 2012, a black-magic conjuring of fast guitars and powerful riff attacks summoning an atmosphere of true darkness.
