MOON FAR AWAY, Russia’s most internationally renowned ritual/neofolk band proudly presents two 7” teasers for “Athanor Eurasia”,
MFA’s upcoming long-awaited full-length album. “Napadi Rosa" is an EP version of one of the album’s greatest tracks that
has already made it to the band’s live set-list. MFA mastermind Count Ash has personally recorded this gloomy and
mesmerizing folk song when doing an ethnographic tour around the Arkhangelsk Region in search of the last surviving bearers
of the true ritual folk tradition.
MOON FAR AWAY’s interpretation has revived the song and turned it into a true powerful chthonic ritual.
The B-side is yet another interpretation of that same song – now by SIX DEAD BULGARIANS, one more cult act from Arkhangelsk,
who have been long known as MFA’s brothers-in-arms. Unlike MFA who opted for singing this magic yet somewhat eerie
half-wedding, half-funeral folk song themselves, SDB built their ambient / noise track around the original field record
featuring Maria Poroshina, an old woman from the depths of the Russian North. The two-track release forms a closed cycle of
existence of this masterpiece of folk art, once nearly forgotten and now brought back to life by the musicians of today.
Co-released by Shadowplay (Russia) and Steinklang (Austria).
