Majdanek Waltz - O Proishozhdenii Mira (About World's Birth) [Wroth Emitter - 2006]

Majdanek Waltz are a Russian language mix of beautiful/chilling dark folk, bleak sawing and lush classical air, gloomy drone tendency, ragged industrial noise elements and the odd hints at more rocking moments. O proishozhdenii mira (About World's Birth)is their 4th full length album and is quite satisfying mix of sounds.

I think their most impressive feat is to go from deeply grey and ugly moments to sawing lush and melodic beauty and back again. Take Znak Votana (The Sign of Wotan) that slips out of the grey concert and bent back industrial noise churn of the previous track Svitok voiny (The Scroll of War), into this wonderfully clean melodic acoustic guitar work that's hovered and soothed on itís jouney by beautiful expressive viola playing. Before droping into cold post-rock guitar folds and grim distortion, before once more slide back to the enchanted acoustic guitar and viola mix. Though out thereís surprising and inventive musically turn of events like this, showing the band really know how to paint very different emotional soundscapes. The great barren and often emtion-less vocal tone of Wolfsblood and MRZ really adding extra depth of atmosphere to the material,  but they are used sparingly letting the other range of grim to beautiful tones to shine in there own right.

A rewarding and varied album that takes the listener through many emotions, barren and  beautiful musical colours, but never sounds contrived or forced. To find out more and to  buy direct go to here.
