There are musical groups for which it is necessary to mature.
And there are albums that need to mature. Four years after the
release of the last full-length album, bypassing a series of
collaborations and experiments with like-minded Patimat Khripa,
Vintersolverv and The Noktulians, Majdanek Waltz returns with a new
album. The album, the songs for which were composed about ten years
ago, during the classical works of the project, has found its final
form now: verified, very personal, chamber. The musicians left
behind noise landscapes and experiments with sound, presenting an
emotional, almost completely acoustic sound canvas, again recalling
the reason why they were once called "the best group of Russian dark
Nineteen people took part in the recording of the album, among
others, Andrzej Zakharishchev von Brausch (Obermaneken), Alexander
Ionov (Fire, Region-77), Alexey and Elena Sheptunovs (Moon Far Away).
Mastering by Jhonnie Kratong (Romowe Rikoito, Kratong).
The album was published in three formats: a standard CD, a
limited-edition cassette in a cardboard box and a collector's
two-disc edition in a mini-vinyl envelope, supplemented by the
single "Your Traits" ("Òâîè ×åðòû") and a set of four postcards.
Aleister Crowley's poems translated into Russian were first published in 2017 – the same year we release the album on which musicians inspired by his works create their sonic dedication. This album was created by Russian dark scene musicians who have never met before but have been following each other's activities for a long time – Majdanek Waltz and Denis Tretyakov.
The latter professes his own religion which implies faith in a mole as an underground deity. Being the leader of two bands – "Tserkov' Detstva (Church of Childhood)" and "Bratya Tuluzovy (The Tuluzov Brothers)" – for the first time he acted as a reciter of poems. Majdanek Waltz from Ryazan' remembered their early musical experiments and primary sources of inspiration. Priceless support was granted by the secret musical project The Noktulians. The final black balance was masterfully adjusted by the member of Reutoff and Otzepenevshiye – ArSch aka Myrrman.
Apart from all other obvious jubilees and important round dates, 2017 marks the 70-year anniversary of Aleister Crowley's death. This recording should close the gap of the jubilee list of the year. Instead of the always fashionable red stars better use this black digipak. Put it in windows, nail it to the front door, take it with you wherever you go. "Every man and every woman is a star".
