Relyos - this is music from the soul and for the soul. Journey through worlds and realities which displayed in a variety music styles but always with the same component - the love to music... "Voices of the Northern Seas" - this is the second full-length album of project, instrumental music which is an experimental mix of such styles as post rock, post metal, ambient. About the concept of album tells the author:

"The idea of the album "Voices of the Northern Seas" appeared under the impression of my first voyage to the New Siberian Islands (archipelago in the Arctic ocean), but realized in the second campaign. If in the first trip I have had only a classical guitar where I wrote material from time to time, it in the the second trip I took with me a full set of music equipment. I really wanted to create something conceptual!

The port from which we went it's my home town - Baltiysk, and ahead was a long way duration approximately four thousand nautical miles in one direction. The idea gained clear shape when we got out of the Baltic sea and passed the straits area which including the Danish Straits. Here was recorded the first song "Misty Skagerrak" which received its name in honor of the strait which connecting with the North sea. This song became a sort of intro before the exciting journey.

I've made the music between the working duties. I worked as a regular mechanic and execute of duty in the engine room where is very noisy from the working mechanisms. After the work I always went out on deck and was looking at the sea, I listened to his sounds and have a rest. The sea sang me the beautiful melodies, it spoke to me and revealed their secrets. Maybe it found an appreciative listener, and I wanted to share these tunes with other people, so, after a little chat with the sea, I walked and recorded this music.

All seas are different. Although this is one common ocean, and the names invented by humans, and all boundaries are conventions - each sea has its own unique character.

Music works were created with the passage of the seas. In the titles of songs I tried to emphasize the features of each sea which had been opened for me, which I saw, heard and felt.

In the North sea, which is sad and capricious, the dolphins were sirens. The Norwegian sea was struck by its power and the spirit! The Barents sea enchant by its color and blues motif. The Kara sea was unpredictable - something calm, something choppy as if worried about something. The Laptev sea was mysterious and enigmatic, the most silent... It's something indescribable! It's magic... In the compositions I have tried to convey this atmosphere, to convey to the people what I experienced, to share melody of each wonderful sea... They are sometimes lonely, they sing and say, they happy and sad, and really want to be heard..."

The release of third album of project titled "Rebirth" will be in digital on our label in the coming days!

Nord Frost - "Solstitium" will be available on CD from November 3, 2016! Pre-order before day of release!

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 - portal.

Digital release: Nord Frost – "Beatitudo" (2015/2016)
melancholic atmospheric black / ambient, Kazakhstan

"Beatitudo" - this is the next work after "Solstitium" of a talented project from Kazakhstan! The album sounds a bit more severely and seriously than the predecessor, episodically came the voice, beautiful cold keys and synths are the basis of this album as before! Cold stars is the backdrop for the memories, the pain and lonely suffering under the rain and in a snow storm, the cold emptiness and the hot emotions - without it life would be empty and dead, but in the end all it brings only happiness! All this author is trying to convey with their music, which is still very bright and light! The album "Beatitudo" will be released on CD in the future in this year on our label in the format of 2-in-1 with album "Solstitium"!
