atmospheric black / ambient, Kazakhstan

The basis of this instrumental no voices music work are atmospheric, cold and very pleasant keys and synths put on atmospheric black background with elements of ambient, neoclassic, neofolk and medieval. Lead melodies are easily remembered and come to mind long after, they are light, airy-heavenly and natural....
Light bright sadness, anxiety, sweet melancholy, personal dear memories and thoughts about a bright future - here is just a small list of feelings and emotions that may cause listening of this beautiful and inspiring album... Light and gentle sounds of pure melancholy practically without a severe and negative impurities. Listening to the album can see those landscapes, fields and valleys on which mind's eye roamed the сreator of this musical splendor. This music is music of wonderful natural legends, valor and light grief about the soon passing earthly life.
Magical sounds as if born in the forests of Lorien as if lost out here and fly in vast expanses of wasteland and fields, rivers and seas, woods and mountains, infinite skies, not knowing rest again and again appealing to the innate and inherent in each of us a sense of the beautiful.
On the album “Solstitium” Nord Frost is very close to new age and world music in the spirit of Amethystium and even Enigma, Gregorian, Era, and Deep Forest, and the the only very transparent resemblance with black contained in the dirty synthetic sound of guitars and the rhythmic tapping percussion on the general air and heavenly music canvas.
The album will surely appeal to the broadest circle of listeners because the tag is black metal in this case is rather nominal because it relates to ideological aspect but not the total musical component of the project, and this CD is much more authentic it will look on the shelf in the music collection in the company of Amethystium releases for example, rather than next to the compact discs Storm and Burzum that for the black scene is a definite breakthrough and achievement!
In the design of the work used photos of the author and photos of Katharos Melancholin (Lauxnos). Thumbnails these excellent photographs illustrate this wonderful music and reveal the theme of seasons. Press release contains abstracts of reviews from our media partner - astartaview.ru portal.

The atmosphere that creates the album - cold and lovely, light and heavy at the same time, the voltage builds up, then goes down, what remains is the uncertainty depressing and exciting waiting very plausible and far from the lightest end, however through the development of the album, on the other hand, passes light theme about extreme hope that helping to overcome any adversity!
