This is my very first encounter with Twilight is Mine; although I have the feeling it won't be the last. Hailing from the great Nordic territory of Russia, Twilight is Mine is the work of two permanent members: Hater and Stellar Ghost, plus a session drummer by the name of Messiah A.M.
Most of the music recorded here was composed in 1999-2000, besides "Young and Cursed", which was written back in 1991. There is also a cover of an 1874 composition from M.P. Musorgsky called "Baba-Yaga", a very cool track by the way. Even if they are a Black Metal band, Twilight is Mine do not stick to the generic style of this genre. A couple of songs are purely of the venomous direction like: "Hate" and "Mistake". Those guys can add drama and intensity quite easily with a crafty use of keyboards, as one can hear in the "Intro" for instance. Calming to moderate tempos with distorted arpeggios work wonders on these songs: "Young and Cursed"(slightly avant-gardist) and the excellent "The Silent Knowledge". On this last composition, not only can we hear acoustic guitar parts, but you'll get some clean chant as a bonus. "Baba-Yaga" is maybe a strange name, even more so considering it was composed in 1874; still, this progressive instrumental contains a darkened symphonic touch that fits very well in the Black Metal scenery.
Wreaking Overrun is a short, but jammed pack of surprise, release from a kvlt region. Hails!
