“Red Snow” tells the story about nine young men who died at the infamous Dyatlov Pass (also known like a "Dyatlov Pass incident"). Reasons of their deaths vary with each opinion — some say it was due to the attack by the native peoples of the North Ural (Khanty and Mansi), some believe its reasons to be of much deeper and conspiratorial nature.
—The track contains several rearranged traditional songs from Khanty and Mansi people. The most distinctive one is called “Kukushka” (Cuckoo) and can be easily heard at the end part of the song.
—We also added some samples which should help to create a better image of Dyatlov Pass incident: we included shamanic tambourine, woman voice singing in Khanty language, drunken young men vocalizing, and the scrunching sound of the footsteps approaching the tents.
—The cover represents musicians’ own fantastic version of the incident: the character on the foreground is a Red Army soldier with his blood turned into glass because of cold, which is nothing but a direct allusion to John Carpenter’s “The Thing” (1982). The background shows the well-known Manpupuner weathering pillars, located some 70 kilometers (43,5 miles) away from the where of an accident.

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
