Svarga Music

I'm not sure which is weirder for this Ukrainian act the fact that the lyrics are written in Ukrainian, Russian and German or the fact that they mix folk, industrial and death metal with black metal and symphonic elements? The album is said to explore "problems of mankind’s relation to the past, ideas of greatness and boundless possibilities of the human spirit, and the strength of will and character". Combine that with "Cosmology concepts are also represented, albeit leaning toward the social aspects explore problems" and you end up with a release that is certainly compelling. The group's sophomore release is certainly experimental and from all signs this is the direction they wish to go. If you find yourself looking for something different and don't mind that this Ukrainian act really does march to the beat of it's own drummer then this is an album you must hear. Folk black metal is one thing. Mixing in electronic elements though transports this one to a whole different realm. Interesting to say the least.
