The first song, Mara, sends the listener right into the middle of a repeating hypnotic sound. After that, is pretty much standard post-metal attitude towards the songs. Π is an interesting title for a song and slashes and dashes through, breaking the post mood and made me wake up from the letartic state to which I slided. Something that the next track, Хан Тәңірі, promptly corrects, with a surprise, surprise of a female vocal singer finishing the lullaby. The last track, Тәңірі, is a long one, almost 16 minutes, bidding you a bye bye in an instrumental trip around keyboards like no other song. When I finished the album I got curious to see how they are going to evolve.
The album is enjoyable. Fans of doom/sludge should give it a try, especially if the day is rainy and foggy. The songs tend to fit the winter/autumn mood, setting this kind of ambiance perfect for meditating. Or sleeping. Either way, it’s not a bad album and I am hoping for a tour around Europe to go and see them and give the “live” test. Would also be a good reason to go back to Poznań, in case they play in their hometown.
