it's my second full album. it was made during 1.5 years, and i've tried to do my best post-stuff for all times. so, i hope it's happened. this time it is dark, sad and absolutely tearing. God bless Godspeed You! Black Emperor, This Will Destroy You and Michael Tanner, these guys were the huge source of inspiration for me. so, listen, keep silence and weep. thank you all. love you everybody. пока-пока.
"Even the author of these tracks calls them "dark, sad, and heartrending." He asks his audiences to "listen, stay quiet... and weep." There's much to be learned in noiseless contemplation, but the results may not be terribly consoling. Wisdom and comfort are very different things..."
"I’m not even going to try to say that I know anything about this band. Some research tells me that their name roughly translates to “Last Holiday” and that it’s the solo effort of a man called Egor. The album is only 3 very long tracks and is 55 minutes long. The lighter parts are really good and the samples are interesting and their use is well done. The drone/noise areas are a little excessive and aren’t my particular cup of tea. At times the album feels very vintage in addition to it capturing a very bleak feel. The vinyl static in track two is an absolute brilliant addition to the track, it’s something I’d like to see done more often in ambient tracks. The best comparison to this album is Hands of the Templar’s 55 minute, one track album “Explore”. Though they’re both very different musically, they’re trying to accomplish the same thing. Long pieces of music with a multitude of different paces and sounds. While I think Explore comes off as a bit more polished, this album is definitely unique in it’s own right. Aside from the overly long stretches of uninteresting drone noise at time, this is a great album"

"believe me, it is a formidable album full of crashing crescendos and otherworldly beautiful passages. You know I like post-rock, though, generally I do not have faith in post-rock anymore. Yet, by listening to this 3-track (in total it is wrapped up in 56 minutes) it reminds of the experience I got in a day 12 years ago by listening to Godspeed You! Black Emperor`s Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven (Kranky). More profoundly, majestic structures are interlaced with (so-called cowbell) indie-tinged bucolicness which in turn are adorned with repetitive noises and sublime electronic effects. Only some issues on Future Recordings had had such impact on me. Moreover, there is impellent density between static and dynamic structures and elements which provides impulses to convert its power into rock and ambient appearances. As you have already figured out it is emotionally thoroughly evocative and shaking. In a word, it is an instance of rock music spotted on the absolute."
