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 as "A Cry For Mankind." 

Fear of a faithful reproduction of sound coined over twenty years ago by the "dying wife" is dispelled by a rather inspired songwriting, which sees the two long tracks opening unraveling painful as expected but all ' nothing but free of excellent ideas, able to cover the inevitable plenty of essential similarity to My Dying Bride (in A Study In Scarlet ) and Swalllow The Sun (the next Nowhere Is Here .) 

The work has a playing time rather high, perhaps , could be reduced by streamlining the two instrumental tracks, stakeholders as well executed and not without some interesting (especially the Persistència De La Memòria ), but the quality of the music played by the band of Kiev averts the effect of boredom, especially after the long pause for reflection offered by Là Où Le Rêve Et Le Jour S'Effleurèrent , The Sleep Of Reason reveals a flawless example of approach to the subject, to which the Vin de Mia Trix approach without using the keyboard or other devices to add tones melancholy to a sound basic, but effective in reproducing the anguish and existential hardships. Silent World denotes a good variety of styles, from a gentle acoustic base that can then be developed further in the sense much more energetic, along the lines of the first works of Opeth. More oriented orthodoxy doom the final two episodes Metamorphosis and (one) , able to seal a long-distance debut of fine workmanship that makes a Ukrainian band already solid reality and not just a simple statement futuristic.
