Paganland started in 1997 in Lviv as a studio project by two musicians: Bylozor and Rune. Two years later they recorded their firs demo Gods Of Golden Circle and completed the band’s line-up with session musicians.
In 2003 the second demo Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors was recorded (without Rune, he wasn’t in Ukraine that time). This demo was released in 2008 by Ukrainian label Black Art Prods as a split with Тені Забутих Предків.
Rune comes back to Ukraine in 2009 and starts to work with the new line-up on the first LP. This album, called Wind Of Freedom was recorded in 2011 and released in 2013 via Svarga Music. In 2013 the Paganland starts to work on their second album Fatherland, which was released two years later via the same label.
In 2015 the band passed through some line-up changes and starts to work on their third album From Carpathian Land, which was released in 2016 via Svarga Music and in 2018 via Japanese label Hidden Marly Prods. The band has also recorded a two-track EP Belted By Spirit that was available on the band’s official Bandcamp. Also in 2017 Paganland played their XX anniversary show. Later it was recorded and released as a live album by Azermedoth prods.
At this moment musicians work on the fourth album Halychyna. It will be dedicated to Galicia, history of this land and fights for freedom. The album will be released in 2019.
