Kvity Znedolenykh Berehiv – Za Nebokray Mriy (2014)


Being huge fans of any variants of Death/Doom Metal, when we received Kvity Znedolenykh Berehiv - (Kvity - for short) demo release “Za Nebokray Mriy” (aka “Beyond the Horizon of Dreams”) we instantly put it on our stereo system. Featuring two songs of monumental atmospheric Death/Doom Metal, this release will intoxicate you with sadness and melancholy for the 20 minutes it runs for. Both songs deliver elements from the genre greats like Saturnus, (old) Anathema, My Dying Bride, Lethian Dreams. Morgion, etc., making them quite awesome.

Opening with “У обіймах (Тихі води)”, the release sets a very dramatic and engaging tone. Merciless weeping guitars surrounded by heavy growls and bleak atmospheric elements. This one-man band provides an excellent rendition of melancholy through music thanks to its lush keyboards/piano arrangements. Clocking in at nine and a half minutes, this track reminds us of Draconian minus the female vocals with some Forest of Shadows influences.

The demo ends with another big slab of doom riffs with the demoralizing “Якби зорі...” This track presents us with crushing atmospheric passages that are very mellow and perfectly crafted to deliver emotional charges. If you like the melancholic passages of Lethian Dreams and Shape of Despair, this band really delivers the goods on this track.

Being freely available on the band’s youtube page, this demo is one hell of a presentation card from the band/project. Every element is highly refined and beautifully combines to deliver one crushing experience that you will never forget. Be sure to check out the digipack version so you can add it to your collection of rare Death/Doom Metal releases that will surely be out of print soon.
