Although Melasse is a Russian band that play metal compositions as thick as the project's name, at the end of the last year they surprised the audience by releasing an album with acoustic versions of their songs. And they managed to make a great impression in this way.
The album's tracks are built not on the electric guitars and noise but on the acoustic ones and this melancholic vibe. And, what's very important, on Ekaterina Yezhova's vocal that sucks the audience into those sadness-filled compositions. This all makes the album strike with a lot of dark folk atmosphere that in the end is destroyed with a droning track hidden behind the album's last Саван.
Another beautiful thing is the cover art with Félix Thiollier's picture from over a millennium ago. No doubt it fits the dark folk climate of the album.
