It's hard to turn down any release that's been tagged by the words 'atmospheric Black Metal', if you just happen to like the very genre in question, that is.

Vietah is a one-man band coming from the Belarusian territory of underground Black Metal. The mastermind behind Vietah, using the name Antarctis, has once again topped himself as a multi-instrumentalist. This album offers 45 minutes of highly enjoyable Black Metal that's been wrapped around with eloquent, icy-cold atmospheres, in which one is able to feel the breath of chilling Nordic wind biting your face, and I guess that's exactly how Antarctis has undoubtedly planned to make his music sound like in the first place: Grim, cold, slightly avant-garde, atmospheric and the kind of Black Metal that points you to an entrance in, but no exit out. It locks you in immediately once you have dared to give it a first spin. All fours songs on Czornaja ?vi? have been really carefully crafted, Antarctis having paid lots of attention to details once again. Despite the fact that the songs are as long as a year of hunger (from over seven minutes to over 14 minutes), they never bore you but manage to keep your attention from start to finish while your ears are locked into them. I don't wonder at all why he wants to keep Viatah as a one-man band; his own band, his own baby, whatever really, in which he is the master-of-arts in everything. And that's how it should be with Vietah from now on. Don't ever let bastards ruin your fine creation.
