One thing I have regrets about is not being able to go at Deva Festival, last year, although I was at maximum two hours away- by car. Extra-musical business kept me that week-end away from my home as well as from the Festival. During that festival I could have seen and heard these Serbians whose debut album pleasantly surprised me. The new material seems to be in unanimity better quoted although the melodic and modern shades master now the entire sound (or maybe because of this aspect!). That Symphonic Black Metal embracing classical music turned now into a fashionable atmospheric Black Metal with abundant keyboard and demonic voice, incandescent guitars and Death battery. There can also be distinguished a violin though in very few times... all in all, the whole sound is complex bad mixed and with too much background noise. I just don't understand why such great album could not reach a more professional studio ...keyboard is the only element covering the background while the drums together with guitars and voices create a bothering even exhausting chaos. Anyway, it is a shame ...with such good music... These Serbians ideas are very good and the album concept is profound with certain weight. Maybe the tape-recording is the reason for such execrable state !? We live in III Millennium and still have a hard time in listening to a music excellently conceived but released in technical conditions of low quality. It is sad... the Serbians deserve more, much more than a critique which I myself am not glad to write. Yet you are the ones to decide if this tape is worth or not the money. As far as the booklet is concerned, it should be OK. Otherwise, if any opportunity to see MAY RESULT in Romania might occur...I assure you I wouldn't miss it once again!
