The second full-length album by Russian Melodic Black/Death Metal band.
Electric polarity between aggressiveness of Black Metal and melodics of instrumental experiments covered by poetic lyrics.
The second album has not lost the distinctive feature of the band - a bilingual lyrics, where original tunes intertwined in Russian and Ukrainian languages, maintaining the mystique of Gogol and soft lullabies melodiousness of folk songs. Poetry has a special place: melo-declamations, fragments of poems of the Silver Age era, joined together with melody of Ukrainian speech.
Fausttophel do not adhere to strict canons as part of its style and constantly experimenting with arrangements. However, in the album clearly heard the old-school sound of music, instead of the newfangled sound. All this contrasted to the aggressive blasts, powerful high-speed guitar riffs and avant-garde instrumental compositions.
The new album like its predecessor is eclectic - it generates special recognizable musical underscore of Fausttophel.
