Never heard of this band, which is not surprising, as they are another obscure Doom band from the wilds of Russia. This is the second album for Amber Tears, and as this was billed as "folky" I was skeptical, but there is precious little folky about it. What this is, is some first-rate Doom music with a big sound, the expected long and highly melodic songs, and a lot of variety and dynamic in the compositions. This band switches from acoustical works to crushing heaviness with relative ease, and without the songs sounding like a mishmash.
So in short, this is a very good disc by a highly promising band, and I look forward to hearing from them again. Moody, brooding, and evocative.
