In 2012, the mastermind behind this band, Stanislav Govorukha a demo. Now, two years later, he got the chance to record with two band members and supported by Greg Chandler of this demo again Esoteric latter in his Priory Recording Studios in England. Exactly the same material so, only now under the name longplayer.
Now this material worth to the general public. It is funeral doom but the class as Evoken , Esoteric and Ahab that can make. Music that is meant to crush your soul and back printing with an expression of pure emptiness. In the bank This is blackened void shaped by devastating riffs backed by without dominating. Heavy keyboards And as an added element is used a violin that you know to hit hard at times when you thought it could not be more deeper. The voice is the voice in the background that makes you realize that you can not move anymore, and here seems to be a sinister pleasure to create. This is the kind of funeral doom which I prefer, with a blackened edge and giving you the feeling that the only way the darkness is still down leads. No hidden glimmers of hope and sweet melodies but immense emptiness. Lovers try direct band camp.
