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.

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.

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...

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.

Viy. Chorna Rillia.

Viy rock-group plays melodic rock-music with big gothic and authentic influences. Secret energy of ancient pagan Slavdom may be felt in every their song.

Ukrainian Gothic Vol. 1.

“Komu Vnyz”, “Skryabin”, “Pirata band”, Yulia Lord and a lot more people – is it strange that they are all here? You see, they and suchlike people are looking for purity and light, plunging into the deepest darkness.

Спасибо за качественную музыку. Конечно, я бы никогда не заказал этот альбом, если бы не услышал его в MP3-формате. Наконец-то и на просторах СНГ стали делать что-то достойное. Что касается отдельных треков, мне особенно нравятся 1-я, 2-я (больше всего), 6-7 и 9-10-ые композиции, остальные мне кажутся несколько слабее (особенно 3-4), в них есть какой-то налет советской эстрады (несмотря на довольно тяжелое металлическое звучание). Хочу сказать, что я отнюдь не поклонник металла, но это действительно великолепный альбом, много прогрессива и меланхолии, которые мне нравятся, да и к тяжести привыкли все, воспитанные на роке 70-х. На мой взгляд достоинство команды в том, что она поет на украинском (хотя я понимаю тексты на 25-30%), по крайней мере язык звучит лучше, чем польский, на котором поют многие прогрессивные польские группы, которые мне нравятся.
Еще раз искренне благодарю.

This CD is amazing, it's full of sadness, depression, loneliness but this is the beauty side of this feelings. I love that CD and I wait for next issue. Cheers.
