One should not be fooled by the name of the band and the album cover: Vin de Mia Trix are Ukrainians and make Doom Metal, even though one may suspect until something else. Since 2007 Vin de Mia Trix already exist, until 2009 one however has done, how to achieve a stable line-up and only now they released the debut album, the album cover but suggesting what to expect: A walk to Ying and Yang reminiscent motif with a man and a woman, opposites collide to each other. These risks include, once hidden from sight repeated contrast of classic Doom Metal in the vein of My Dying Bride and other facets that appear sometimes more, sometimes less typical.

This can be fragile realm guitar game that fluctuates between positive and melancholic or sudden trips to Death Metal. But the singing varies between ill-elegiac, grunting but also dreamy. The guitars seem at times to bubble to himself and remove himself from the strong backbone, this still seems to be always in sight. Any deviation seems conclusive and for the development to go, even if you will also be surprised by some of the musical breaks.

Overall prove Vin de Mia Trix how modern Doom Metal should sound, so it is a clear recommendation. Since the album was released for download from the band in addition to the physical form also free at Bandcamp, there is actually no reason to miss out on the album.

Based on the band name one would expect a collective that resides in Mediterranean areas, but on the contrary. We are dealing with a band hailing from Ukraine, active since 2007 in the doom/death metal genre. Earlier they have released an EP and a demo, but with Once Hidden From Sight they are ready with a full length debut album. Pivotal man appears to be guitarist Serge Pokhvala as composer and in his Nightspirit Studios re...

Vin De Mia Trix have been around for a while: since 2007, in fact. After a couple of turbulent years, their line-up stabilised in 2009 and the Ukrainian band followed on from that with a self-released demo, an EP on Satanarsa Records and, finally, this debut full-length - three years in the making. Its announcement as a joint release, through the increasingly-Doom-rostered Hypnotic Dirge Records and renowned stalwart Solitude Product...

The Ukrainians Vin de Mia Trix belong to a doom scene of birth relatively recent but growing, not only from a numerical point of view.

Having dealt with in recent weeks the work of Mournful Gust , certainly more oriented sounds gothiche, Once Hidden From Sight gives us back to the origins of death-doom from the first notes with his opening words guitar that carries the unmistakable mark of a milestone...

Ukrainian party with the mysterious name Vin de Mia Trix dates its origin to 2007, and despite being the much missed, it does not automatically mean that it would in its creation was to know. So, to say it to the right level, when talking about the little, and by that I mean one EP, aptly titled demo "Promo" and of course the actual debut "Once Hidden from Sight" , which on more than sixty minute...

An album of eight tracks made quite long, sometimes mournful, who make their atmospheres strong point, with rides doom rich acoustic moments of tremendous impact on mood and...

Coming from Ukraine, Vin de Mia Trix, have just landed their debut full-length, entitled Once Hidden From Sight. The doom/death band is encompassing all the virtues of the first albums of bands such as Anathema and Paradise Lost along with the devastating melancholy of My Dying Bride. Combined with a more melodic approach towards the doom/death genre, the band is brought closer in style also with acts such as Saturnus.

 Funeral doom from the Ukraine here and this debut sports a nice cover if you shell out for the CD rather than the free download on their bandcamp page. ‘A Study In Scarlet’ is the first song and it begins in traditional style with a persistent, simple melodic refrain wandering across a sedate, stately riff. In style this is more in the early Ahab mode rather than the Skepticism or Unholy schools. Long as you’d expect, th...

When the world ends, will you fight it, or let the tide take you under?

Doom has always been ‘one of those genres’. A whole lot of give, equal amounts of take, it’s fair that metal has developed over the years, after all it’s the most expansive musical genres ever to grace the earth. With all of metal’s sub-genres there’s some that just simply sit on the fence between two or three. It’s like a traveler not knowing whic...
