The title can be translated as “The spirit of Kusoto”. Kusoto is a holy grove of the Mari people – the last pagan nation in Europe. Such groves have very deep sacral meaning and serve to Mari as a “church”. Cutting trees , as well as gathering mushrooms or berries or even simply walking inside the grove without a dire need is strictly forbidden for fear of curse, hex or even death. Few people know much about Kusoto, fewer who dare venture inside for obtaining this knowledge, ever return.
-At the beginning of the track listeners can hear Mari folk song “Sun rises”
-There is an unofficial fan-created clip created with the permission of Ukraminafilm. Video is full of all sorts of grim humor. Cartoon is called Kolobok (Roly-Poly) from “Strasti-mordasti” series
supported by 27 fans who also own “The First Chapter (Instrumental Edition)”
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
