Guitarist, bassist, and mastermind of the project, Vladimir Lehtinen released the following statement concerning The Black:
“Being the child of my thoughts, this album is the true face of the band – a well-fused combination of melodic black metal and groove metal the way we see it. As always, the album includes a separate unique story behind each song.”
“Our ambitions were through the roof on this release – we re-recorded and improved the lines for all the instruments, including the drums, bass, and even addinig some extra guitars, while Gleb’s [Sysoev] vocals sound as massive and crushing as always. Honesty and a natural aggressive sound are the qualities that distinguish independent artists from purely commercial ones these days, and we are happy that we can create music for the sake of art and not for just raking in some cash. We hope that our sound, punchy and somewhat scary, like a gust of cold northern wind in a seemingly empty home in the middle of the night will let you get fully immersed in the atmosphere that we embedded in the music – nine different stories related to darkness. Darkness in temptations, actions, soul, socium, thoughts – darkness in anything and everything you can possibly imagine. Don’t forget that each song has annotations, as we try to create real musical works of art that frighten with their beauty. And beauty is enchanting.”
