I don't think I've ever heard of any band coming from Kyrgyzstan... This trio comes from Bishkek and they play some sort of a progressive and avant-garde mix of shamanic Black and Death Metal. The band's mostly mid-paced approach is innovative and interesting, trying to break some new ground. In that sense, one must respect these fellows' efforts to set themselves apart from the masses even if some parts tend to sound a bit clumsy and even amateurish here and there.

It's really the band's obscure, sort of shamanic vibe that makes them interesting to the casual listener. There's something truly primitive and primal here. At times, when you listen to the disc you may be like, "what the F**K is going on here...," while at other times you may even say you feel pretty comfortable with their sound, no matter how avant-garde or weird they may sound musically. Good stuff.
