The debut album of KALEVALA presents a really amazing mixture of cheerful folk tunes, unique Ksenia's (ex-NEVID') singing, skillful solo guitar and accordionparts. This music is full of the lively folk metal energy and true spirit!
The second CD of the band Kukushkiny Deti (or The Cuckoo’s Children) continues traditions of the marvelous debut album Kudel' Belosnezhnogo L'na, but at the same time it extends style limits, making the whole material more emotional and musically deep. The album reached the 2nd place in the top albums-2009 according to the readers of the respected Russian metal magazine Dark City. Besides the highlight of the first CD – the lively folk metal energy with the leading accordion, this album presents more sophisticated and experimental composing approach as well as classical hard rock influences and acoustic ballad bridges. And, of course, the unique vocals of Ksenia! Brilliant, expressive and live, telling the magical stories of Finnish epic.
The debut studio album of Rock’n’Raw Bottled Band "Na Dne Butylki" (At the Bottom of Bottle) is a good doze of cool heavy stuff which is strong as true old whiskey! These nine tracks are like a wild party full of alcoholic drive. This uncompromised hard'n'thrash material will not leave you without a gulp of good mood and true spirit. The style of Rock’n’Raw Bottled Band is based on classic hard rock but everything is performed trashy and heavy in the vein of the modern trend of the genre.
