This album is re-release of the debut CD of the cult Archangelsk
ritual darkwave \ neo-folk band MOON FAR AWAY. Without any doubt we
could say that from this album the development of the Russian gothic
culture have started. And this album have demonstrated west the main
point of the Russian gothic. We could compare "Lado World" with corner
stone on which Russian dark scene was built. In spite of the fact that
the upper floors of this building look more modern in some way, the
basis is always the basis - "Lado World" was the beginning of
everything. The privilege of the classic is that fact that we always
get back to it.
In this album very different and at first sight incompatible durations, cultures and folk characters are combined. But all this is combined in very deep fundamental way. "Lado World" is one of the brightest example of the ritual tendency in the modern music. It's the hymn to the eternal run of the nature and it's reflection in human existence.
This Shadowplay release is not just reprint. This release includes two disks. The first one is new version of the "Lado World" album that was released in 1996 on the famous Russian label Exotica Records (remastering of the 2005 year was maid by Emily A. Saaen). The second one is called "anti-Lado World" and presents 17 (!) exclusive remixes and cover-versions of the Moon Far Away songs, that have done by very famous west and Russian musicians of the dark scene working in very different stylistic from neo-folk to experimental and goth-electro. We could just add that the staff of the members of this project will amaze you!
