Product description

The wind is wavering the leaves of the sleeping halls,
The sky is pouring down the light covering the blue with the heat,
In the threads of the forgotten roads, in the roaring rapids,
The snow drift of the time has washed away the traces of the past…

The 2018’s collector’s cassette reissue of the 2016’s album of the Kostroma folk-rock/ambient band Knyazhaya Pustyn (Княжая Пустынь). The deeply ornate lyrics in Russian deal with the nature of Ruthenia, the forgotten spirit of the ancient Slavonic culture and its mystical impact on the hearts of some of the today’s people despite the bygone ages. The sound was remastered for the analogue release. Released by Shum Derevyev Records (shu-mc 02-18), Der Schwarze Tod (tod02mc) and COD Label and Distribution (COD08MC) on March 25, 2018.
