Narčat (Narchat) is the name of Mokshan czarina (Moksha and Mordva describe the same nation but Russian people are more familiar with the name “Mordva”) although she cannot be found in any historical records. The legend has it that Narčat was a daughter of Mokshan kanazor (king) Puresh who was the ruler of the early feudal formation of Mokshans called Volost Puresheva in which several fiefdoms were united.
Legends about Narčat were first recorded in 1920th by I.F. Sadin, member of Saratov Scientific Archives Commission.
“Czarina was a young woman of great beauty. She could ride the horse as any Cossack, and had 300 men as servants, and 20000 warriors. She built herself a palace on the beach of Moksha river and a summerhouse afield where she used to spend her summer days. There also was an underground tunnel leading from the summerhouse right to the palace. In the times of her rule there was a great battle between Mordvians and the Tartar Yoke. The battle happened during winter on thin river ice. Despite her vigorous resistance Narčat armies had been defeated and czarina led her horse into the ice-hole where she drowned.”

What’s left to say that hasn’t already been said. I shall just add my voice to the consensus; HAIL THE TRUE BATUSHKA! I won’t even regard the other imposter because it’s simply an inferior band. Regardless of other bands, this album is the best to release this year; a testimony to what metal and powerful music can bring to the table. Buy this. Now metalm8200000
