Epitimia – Нить (Thread) – Audio

Eptimia

A five track release (available on bandcamp) that fills the room with an otherworldly soundscape of soaring and swooping dark-melodic metal that seems to emerge from a wintry forest as the music, although expansive, feels as though blanketed in studio baffled by the absorbency of snowy drifts.

This is an EP to ingest in full to best immerse in to the ethereal weaves of the roughly fifty one minutes release.

The closing track is the just over eleven and three quarters minutes – Древо (The Tree).

The final track on the album My Kargyraa was recently performed as a live version at the Sziget 2018 festival in Hungary earlier this month, this being approximately a minute shorter than the studio version on the LP.

Longer stay readers may have forgotten the band name Hartyga as it was back in 2016 they last featured – though will be likely to immediately recollect the traditional Tuvan throat singing of Nachyn Choreve.

Наадя (Naadia) - Спутник (Satellite)

Наадя

Recorded in live performance in Moscow and of more punctuated countenance than music of theirs more usually featured.

Спутник (Satellite) revolves around a skittish electronica through which the scintillating voice of Надежда Грицкевич (Nadya Griskiewicz) echoes as though imploring from a buried sarcophagus.

Continuing to develop their profile in the Russian rock scene, regularly supporting international touring bands as well as headlining their own tour schedule, Mirrorland can’t help but raise their profile more broadly internationally.

Winter Kingdom, from the forthcoming album, serves a decent representation of their music as an introduction with its powerful melodies and highly impressive delivery.
