a noend of mine – “Entwined” (Video Premiere)


I’ve always found the most tranquil and meditative music to carry the most bombast and melodrama. There is something to be said about artists who are able to craft maximum sound with minimal performance, a stark statement against the oft layered and instrumentally indulgent music which pervades music, especially metal, in this new decade.

Compared to their main project, the ethereal Kauan, one wouldn’t expect Alex Vynogradoff and Anton Belov’s new project, the equally as lush but much quieter a noend of mine, to hold that same sort of grace. After all, Kauan is that sort of layered indulgence I referenced earlier, and with its many layers comes beautiful melodrama and a sort of cinematic pomp, but whereas Kauan bounds and bellows, a noend of mine tiptoes and whispers. This is quiet, beautiful, folky progressive rock, echoing the softer moments of Opeth’s Deliverance and Katatonia’s Last Fair Deal Gone Down. Between the drifting layers of strummed acoustic guitars, distant whispers, and verdant atmospheres, a noend of mine unveils a stillness, like a calm, reflective lake. It is beautiful.

The Serenity’s Eve is slated for release on Pest Productions, but for now you can enjoy an exclusive video premiere of penultimate track “Entwined” below.
