This Russian band play a brand of metal that is hard to place in any particular sub-genre. Metal Archives tag it as death/thrash metal but that is so far off it is almost comical. This is more progressive than anything else. Goth progressive perhaps even. As much as I don’t care about sub-genres as much does it bother me when I cannot place it any particular. Yeah, I know. I am a walking contradiction. But no matter where I need to place this to make sense of the chaos I like what I hear. There is a sense of melancholia about this that I like. It isn’t happy-go-lucky metal. There is a depth to it. This was a nice surprise. Anders Ekdahl
