*Google translation of Italian review

A silent onset of despair and feeling. Good for the first Ukrainians Odradek Room and their rocky doom / death tinged with melancholy and reverb. I think the last thought occurred to them during the songwriting process has been to electrocute in an immediate way, I agree that the genre usually does not strike immediately for bias, however, the first impression we give the same in some So, instead with Odradek Room there I was understanding anything, seemed empty and without ideas, too cold and lacking that special something. But then the story has changed and luckily I'm here to praise a debut of a few ambitions but from content "meditative" and dream. It is almost strange alongside the word "dream" to a music so closed (the way you asphyxia is also conferred by the production), but it ends up inside thanks to arpeggios in suspension "emotionally productive," while the other side of the transport is not missing due to meager acceleration that make it vaguely progressive (example model is Faded Reality .) The unmistakable timbre Ukrainian / Russian contributes its part in providing special vocal metric able to differentiate a bit the whole thing (I think River and its beginning tearjerker) with respect to conventionality, but if I have to think of a name to do come to mind immediately the first Katatonia , although as primary setting we could pull a dance classics Officium Triste and the "bad habit" of pulling out of an old gothic harmonies sleeping ( My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost ). tormenting and inaccessible, the six strings seem to flow from the speakers during the execution of a Theatre of Forms I feel that more and more I like it. If this is the beginning there is much to hope for and certainly applaud the Hypnotic Dirge Records which proves to have a sixth sense also just outside the classic pavement. Even the cover helps in giving a status of confusion, you end up immersed in matter (they give us the red, but the colors may well be others), clinging to a music certainly intense and varied that almost displaces us when we weighed the tracks longer and more voluptuous. 100% recommended for those who scours the underground every day, here is quality food, someone might need a little patience but the music does not betray this turn.
