  • Album: Epos
  • Year: 2007

Being at their 3rd album, the four guys present us an ingenious Pagan Black Metal, with lots of synth, plenty of primitive yet rapid guitars, some cello fragments and killing percussions! There is just a single track, long enough to fill an album, finely elaborated and saturated with rhythm. The sound is specific for the bands promoted by No Colours and brings to my mind the genius debut "For All Tid"/DIMMU BORGIR, released years ago by the same German label. Along the sinister cello, on the background we can hear various incantations and traditional songs, probably rooted in the Kyrgistan area, the native place of the four. The track is about 35 minutes long and it is a true atmospheric Black Metal work, unveiling Northern influences entwined with the original elements spotted before. It is one of the most beautiful surprises from this year's underground Black scene and I recommend you to listen to it carefully, it is worth!
