Sunrise Auranaut is an Russian studio project, led by multi-instrumentalist musician and composer Vitaly Kiselev who creates music in the Progressive / Art / Symphonic rock and Prog Metal genres, mainly in the traditions of the classical school of Prog 70s.
In the sound and themes of music from Sunrise Auranaut friendliness and softness equally matched with the hardness of Rock and a powerful rhythm section, and in the arrangements to maintain a reasonable balance between keyboards and guitars. Used as electric and acoustic. Unlike certainly Art rock instrumentals, Sunrise Auranaut songs ontain stylistic variations: Prog/Art coexists with AOR, Hard’n'heavy, Rock’n'roll and New Wave styles. All songs written in Russian.
Published in the year 2013 on the Musea Parallèle label, “Childhood’s End ?” reflects the musical breath of the Progressive rock of the Seventies. Here’s a contemporary personal vision of childhood, illustrated with the beauty of Nature, boundless inner freedom, a sea of energy, vivid feelings and images, mystical fear, mystery, magic and belief in miracles… Throughout the album, quiet and peaceful parts alternate with fast and energetic sequences, linked with a cosmic inspiration. Keyboards and electric guitar rule, leaving room for acoustic guitar though. All this is combined with a powerful rhythm section. The instrumental concept-album “Way Of The King” (Musea Parallèle, 2013) is mostly in the symphonic Progressive rock genre, with frquent incursions into Progressive heavy-metal territory. Music on this album illustrates stories from the life of the king who, in order to find itself and to be happy, decides to refuse the throne and all richess. He then becomes a wandering musician.
Moscow post-rock band Suvital was formed in distant 2009 and since that time they’ve been changing their final composition of the band for several times in search of the perfect harmonic sound. The unusual name was derived by the founder and guitarist from the term “relativism ” (Latin relativus – relative) . This artificial word was created by inverting the letters, in the deepest sense the meaning of it can be understood as the opposite of the term ” relativism “, but in truth «suvital» is in the right way reflects the original significance of the term: everything in life is relative, the line between good and evil is very conditional, we learn the truth only by our own states of soul and body. However, the musicians let the listeners make their own interpretation of the band’s name. The powerful sound in the “Nirvana” spirit, flavored with elements of math-rock, diluted with pop tunes, which is not peculiar to the genre (especially in Russia ) – all of that guys had shown on their first EP titled “96″, which appeared in a free access in Russian internet in august 2013.
It should be noted that the process of recording and mixing the music had lasted for a long year, during that time the composition the band’s members has changed, which means an outstanding diligence in case of the right attitude of their work. Only now the guys were able to get closer to the ideal sound, that could be easy to understand, but in fact was full of deep and complex structure. They were inspired by the legendary Led Zeppelin and emotional anguish of the old blues. The musicians are actively engaged in recording the second tape.
Album was recorded in the Ukrainian Academy of Art (Kiev) in summer, 1994. It was a completely tape recorded on Soviet vintage recorders.
Digitally remastered was implemented in 2007 and 2012. The album consists of instrumental tracks and several short pieces. System of recording musical instruments tends to psychedelic rock of the 60’s.
The album featured surreal sounds and special cinematic atmosphere. Some musicians in their reviews says that the album is the soundtrack to a nonexistent movie.
Album is an experimental and research in the field of sound. In some tracks traced basis ambient and krautrock experience.

“Pavel Eremeev and Artem Galkin are the ex-members of Ya Sleva Sverhy (I Am on the Top Left) who back in 2007 decided to split off and create their own band, Usssy. Their fourth album “Karpet Birch” was just released and Satellite Voices met with Pavel and Artem to talk about their sources of inspiration and recording process. Hypnotic, loud and powerful, the band’s largely instrumental musis experiments with synths and samples on the new record.
Satellite Voices: Tell us about your musical style?
Pavel Eremeev: We released four albums so far but each of them is very different. In general, our style can be described as noise rock or noise core, but this is only a tag that highlight our punchy sound.
SV: What inspired “Karpet Birch”?
Artem Galkin: We had a totally new approach in creating tracks while working on this album. We recorded cover versions of various folk songs from all the world. We took the original songs and recorded our instruments over them. The original songs themselves were the main sources of our inspiration.
SV: Where do the niche tracks’ influences come from?
Artem Galkin: About five years ago, after I came across a collection of tracks called “Music of Islam”, presented mainly by North African and Persian music. I got interested in unsual quarter-tone melodies and inconsistent rhythms. As a result, I focused my attention on the Eastern music, rather than modern Western like Iranian, Afghan and Indian music.
A couple of years ago put quarter-tone modes into my baritone guitar, sold the old jazz acoustic guitar and recently bought a Kurdish tanbur – my current main instrument. Although, I haven’t used in the Usssy songs yet. My consciousness shifted. The playing technique and understanding of the unusual harmonies came to me easily.
SV: What Russian bands do you recommend on checking out?
Pavel Eremeev: Now I am quite interested in Leonid Fedorov’s music from the rock band Auktyon (Auction). I listened to him before but I have recently discovered him again. It is very powerful and impressive. I am experiencing some kind of a wave of re-listening to my old favorite bands like Ya I Moi Drug Gruzovik (I and My Friend Truck) and Tekilajazzz. I didn’t listen to Grazhdanskaya Oborona (Civil Defense) when I was young but now I am into this band. Masha i Medvedi (Masha and the Bears) too.
SV: Do you enjoy experimenting with the sound?
Pavel Eremeev: We always try to find an original sound. Sometimes it is possible to experiment with a sense of space within the sound, such as re-recording the stereo microphone and moving it away from the source of the sound. Or imposing unusual effects such as a denoiser, designed to suppress the noise on voice recordings, on the guitar or on the entire record.
For example, the drums on “Karpet Birch” were recorded partly at the country house, partly at the rehearsal studio, partly at home. All other instruments were recorded at home. The next album will be entirely recorded at a country house. The acoustics are really great there, especially if you put the extra microphones in the hay or in the attic.
SV: What are you doing now?
Artem Galkin: We have two more albums to release. We are also rehearsing a lot and writing the new songs. Moreover, we are planning to have a few gigs in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other Russian cities. We also want to take creative vacations this winter, and go travelling.” (C) www.dazeddigital.com

Echoes and Signals was formed in the beginning of 2012 in Tula, Russian Federation, as an instrumental trio. The band plays music influenced mainly by post-rock and progressive rock elements. Original lineup included Fedor Kivokurtsev(guitars, sound producing), Alexey Zaytsev(bass) & Vladimir Pozdyshev (drums). Originally the band was formed just as an improvisation playground for the founding members, but lately it turned into a real project. Though basic music concepts: improvisation, emotions and naturalness were the same all the way. The result of all transformations was first 4-song EP album called “Comma”, recorded in July, 2012. Studio & composing work was always E&S priority, but the band gave single live performances during 2012. Also, in the end of the year a recording/composing process for the new EP that will be called “Ouroboros” was started.
Now “Ouroboros” is here.
This is the newest “Live Official Bootleg” by Roz Vitalis. It has been recorded in the course of support of the second Saint-Petersburg tour of the Finnish band Dasputnik. This completely instrumental recording contains both newest (previously unreleased) tracks and rearranged versions of “hits” like “Painsadist”, “Gorgeous Cliff” and “Mother of All Rain”. Like any Roz Vitalis stuff, the style is the “Unclassifiable Branch of Prog Rock”, and music is about The Ineffable and The Unfathomable, in particular, about human aspiration for The Unapproachable Light.
The debut album from Saint-Petersburg, Russia based power-trio The Flash Fever shows a bright palette of influences and genres. Although in general it is 70s inspired fuzzy psychedelic rock one can find something from stoner, progressive rock, funk and even hip-hop there. Fast loud and fuzzy riffs stand nearby tuneful choruses which are flavored with bluesy solos. Two singers make the sound differs from track to track and even through one song. All that components are mixed in turmoil of madness and heavy vibes.
While reheaseling in a country house (dacha) during the summer 2011 The Flash Fever recorded four contry versions of their songs. So was born this EP. Vocal melodies are served with bright banjo, steel guitar, deep fretless bass, drums and finished with slide guitar solo.
