Majdanek Waltz: bandcamp | website | facebook | vk.com

"Der Weg Der Toten" (“The Path of the Dead”) is a collaboration by the renowned musical mystics Majdanek Waltz, the Belorussian neoclassical project Vintersolverv (ex-Erde, ex-Svalbard) and the dark horse of the Russian underground scene – The Noktulians. The work is dedicated to the marinistic images appearing in the poems of the expressionist and symbolist poets of the turn of the 20th century: Georg Heym, Stéphane Mallarmé, Arthur Rimbaud and Aleksandr Blok.

Recitations by Pavel Blyumkin and Larisa Arkhipetskaya are skillfully framed by the sound of the chamber ensemble of Majdanek Waltz, supported by piano and string arrangements of Vintersolverv, at times referring to the melodic themes of his solo album "Frost På Träden" (2018, Infinite Fog Productions). But this harmony is fragile, occasionally it becomes covered with the rust of dark ambient and noise passages, and sometimes it is completely destroyed when the sonic field is invaded by the harsh dissonant music of The Noktulians. As a result, the whole album turns into a maelstrom of sounds and melodies dragging an unguarded listener into its abyss…

The artwork for the album was created by Elena Lisitsa. The physical edition is presented in two versions: a CD limited to 300 copies in a matte 4-panel digisleeve and an audio cassette limited to 50 copies. The digital version is available on bandcamp.
