Obiymy Doschu. Elehia. (Elegy)
This album inspires the feeling of surprising integrity. In the sense that here literally all details truly match each other: starting from the polygraph design to music, from the album's title to the texts – these are all important constituents of the general mood, atmosphere. Sure, that's how it should be – but it is not always so, especially with debuts albums, that is why it is nice to note such adequacy. The more so that "Rain's Embrace" play the music in which the atmosphere is very important – without it, such music would be perceived as hypocritical farce. But no – one does not feel anything false, the guys expressly stick to aesthetics of the style chosen. Gloomy, somewhat depressed, however – with a strong spring of force inside. The keys and heavy guitars seem to dip into the depths without direct sunlight, but due to, in particular, the violin, flute, female back-vocal the light still does penetrate – and allows the music to happen softly, surprisingly lyrically. The main vocal sounds, meanwhile, not extremely emotional, it is somewhat muffled a bit – and within the aesthetics chosen, this, presumably, is appropriate, because it does not destroy the general aftertaste of the "Gothic". But, I believe, it would be cool if in the group's next work the voice of Volodymyr Agafonkin open up more expressly – this would add a dramatic effect to the picture. However, "Rain's Embrace" is already a phenomenon worth attention of all fans of gloomy lyricism.

Kholodne Sonce. Chorne vyno. /digi-pack/. (Black Wine)


..situation of being on the verge of non-existence seems to have caused a change of intonations: Vasyl's voice now has less of a "theater" and more of some non-obvious power, which manifests itself in spite of, not due to circumstances. Because of this, the branded twilight nature of the lyrics is perceived not as a tribute to the image, but as living experience..

Tin Sontsya. Tanets' sertsia. (Heart Dance).


"Heart Dance", perhaps, has become one of the most anticipated Ukrainian albums in this direction for the last couple of years. And it lives up to expectations – the work appears powerful, bright and deep. It seems – the best one so far in the group's discography.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Kholodne Sonce. Teatr Temnykh Peljustok. (Theater of Dark Petals)


If one reads all texts in the booklet at once – it becomes clear that this is the same song, the same play, the same mirror broken into pieces. And the protagonists – He and She – try to find, see each other. But – they only cut their glances and fingers with the sharp edges, since from the very beginning they have been living on different sides of the reflections..

Tin Sontsya. Polum’jana ruta. (Flaming Rue)


Although the new disc also contains quite a bit of historical alliterations, they are, however, rather conditional, poetic. Here, foremost, the issue is already longing for pure freedom, the freedom to live and die by one's own choice, the ability to make such choice – and not to be afraid, not to retreat.

Arachnophobia. Arachnophobia.


Powerful, sated musical grenade, in which classical, pure rock borders on the Gothic sound – and this is already good. But Valery Vlasenko’s vocals are something really so deep, rare, genuine that one even gets surprised...
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Vombad. Visim hodyn na dobu. (Eights Hours a Day)


Though there are no obvious and faultless ties with Australia and its fauna here, still something marsupial is felt in this music. I cannot explain that. Fortunately, there’s something else. For example, as for sounding, in it gothic notes and moods are mixed with neo-romantic ones.
