“Virgo Mitt” is dedicated to a legend that became well-known at the very dawn of this millennium. It all began in the middle of 1960th in a small town of M. that is not far from Tallin when a car mechanic Virgo Mitt decided to dig himself a well. The work was going perfect until his shovel suddenly bumped into something of metallic nature. All his efforts to dig the thing up or to find its edge and dig there had proven useless. That metallic plate simply seemed to have no end. Then Mitt got a rock-drill. Persistent man had been drilling the plate for hours and hours trying to make a hole in it so that his already invested time and efforts would not be in vain.
The upper layer of the plate appeared to be not too thick yet extremely tough. The inner layer had a different, organized structure (like icicles or nails). Nothing is impossible to a willing mind: few days later Mitt had a hole in the plate, that appeared to be 1-1,5 inches thick as Mitt assured, big enough for a well, and a whole bucket of metallic shards. The water began to well up and Mitt decided that his work on the well was finished so he threw the shards back into the hole but kept a couple of the bigger ones (around 10 centimeters in diameter) as a souvenir. In time though one piece was lost but the fate of the other was much more interesting…
Mitt told a chemist friend of his about this unusual discovery. So the shard got into Tallinn Polytechnic Institute. In 1969 the shard was given into the hands of a research scientist and later to Herbert Vijding — a vice-director of research in the Geological Institute ESSR Academy of Science. Perhaps that could have been the end of the shard’s story, however a couple of years later the shard was accidently touched by one of the engineers. The man got hit with something that looked like a very powerful electrical discharge and the engineer lost consciousness. Vijding was amazed: so many times he touched the shard yet nothing had ever happened to him.
The legend hides another curious fact, the cats were got completely obsessed with the well. All these elements became the inspiration for the song cover.
—Initially “Virgo Mitt” was planned as a 100% black-metal song
—Leitmotif was created back in 2013 under a strong influence of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt
—One can hear cats purring in the background of the beautiful melody at the end of the track

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
