Stalnoy Pakt / Anthesteria - Guerra: Sola Igiene Del Mondo 〜 Dedicated to the Russo-Japanese War 1904-1905

This split release is a commemoration of one of the most tragic pages of Russian history in the XXth century – the Russo-Japanese War. This lost war became a deep scar in a national consciousness of that period and turned out to be among the most painful and powerful incentives to the following first Russian revolution (1905) and further eventual decline of the Russian monarchy. This release is a try to revive the deep anxiety and the premonition of the upcoming relentless social shock which have overwhelmed the Russian nation in those times. Stalnoy Pakt presents maybe their most melodic tracks to date here, the distinctive band’s multi-layered dark ambient is melted with old military Japanese song samples and old Russian lyrics narrations, sometimes adorned with piano chords or martial drums. Anthesteria’s cold gloomy tunes combined with choir chants and gramophone record samples aggravate the atmosphere of the dull waiting for the imminent disaster. The album is concluded with authentic historical recording of the classic track of the period called “Na Sopkakh Manchzhurii” performed by a very famous singer of that time Mikhail Vavich. This funeral waltz dedicated to the victims of this war drives the overall feel of despair and grief up to the highest limit. The album could be compared to the best examples of history inspired works such as LJDLP early releases, but with its own very special purely Russian depressive mood. An absolute must! Limited to 500 pieces.
