|SISTEMA BEZOPASNOSTI Dolg I Vernost / Debitum Et Fides 2 CD
The 2011 album of Sistema Bezopasnosti, one of the few currently active Russian dark folk bands. Their music is heroical and lyrical militaristic apocalyptic folk recorded by the canons of the genre: marching rhythms, acoustic guitar, bass, piano, trumpet and some amount of electronics. The band's style is easily recognizable by its lyrics and ecstatic vocals of the band's leader VlaD Doronin, and also by lush but thoroughly thoughtful musical arrangements. The songs sang in Russian language are dedicated both to the present-day themes of the dominance of non-spirituality, and to the timeless philosophical questions. Here's also some place for simple human feelings. The album also features a couple of nice instrumental tracks... The second CD contains the album "Cosmogony and Eschatology" (2008) previously not released on physical media. This opus is dedicated to the Scandinavian mythology and shows completely different side of the band, particularly it's skills in working with analogue electronic sound. Rich multilayered instrumental compositions, each of them like a trip with complete plot. This is not purely an ambient work, here is enough space for pompous battle scenes, electro ritual atmospheres and noisy moments... The album is released in a double digisleeve with an 8-page booklet containing lyrics and photos.
