MAJDANEK WALTZ is a death folk band formed in
December 2001 when we released our first two-song single. At first
it was just a studio project, and only in 2004 we played the first
concert. Itís fun to be a musician: having released the album you
reap the harvest of praising reviews, and during the tours you have
a right to drink violently with friends and girls fans.
Since 2001 MAJDANEK WALTZ released 10 albums (not to mention
singles, EPs and compilations). The album of 2003 ďWinter taleĒ we
consider the best. Itís impossible to listen to/download/get it
anywhere. Itís a secret album! But this very album represents
MAJDANEK WALTZ the best way.
As for the aesthetics of MAJDANEK WALTZ we can put it like this:
ancient Greeks divided the existence into chaos and cosmos (harmony,
order of the world, symmetry). The human, the way the Greeks saw him,
was a microcosm, the universe was macrocosm, and the relations
between them were the ones of resemblance. Thus, from the Greek
philosophy there arises a thesis of ontological origin of beauty,
beauty as a property of being. But we are interested in the beauty
of non-being. The esthetics of non-existence!
And the main goal of our music is to help listener to distract
himself from different problems and responsibilities that others try
to fuck him up with. To concentrate on what you need and do what you
will. To catch a certain mood, when the so called reality stops
dominating upon you, and really important things take the first
place: hangover chill, gloomy summer day, the thunderstorm over the
