There is great depth of feeling on the album that seeps through the cracks of this raging entity.
It races forward like a thoroughbred on the hunt, but has so many interesting and unique flourishes, time changes, and unexpected twists that it is clear the band are thoughtful composers.
Chelyabinsk, Russia and Indianapolis, Indiana? Two places that no one thought would be mentioned in connection with each other, let alone by such an excellent piece of cooperative heaviness
A fantastic listen of well produced, bluesy, groovy metal.
It’s interesting to discover the transformation these very “Western” influences undergo through the able chops and respectable voice of a musician from Moscow, (whose vocal similarity to James Hetfield once landed him a job in a Metallica tribute band).
V Starodavnie Goda is a romping album that calls to mind a medieval tavern filled with victorious warriors after battle.
Really good grooves and chunky bass and guitar riffs. Just genuinely a fun album.
There is a heavy presence in every song, like that feeling of longing when you are missing someone who will never be there any more.
If this balance of aggression, speed and groove doesn’t get your blood pumping you must be dead.
