The edition has been instantly sold-out, has received huge quantity great and enthusiastic responses, and till now it is considered one of the best drone ambient works from Russia...
It's a true monument and a masterpiece of ritual-shamanic drone ambient music.
The album is devoted, mysterious death of nine professional tourists, on a mountain Holat-Sjahl slope (that in transfer from Mansi language - "Mountain of dead") on February, 1st 1959г. Sixty years later this history continues dements researchers, but the solution probably will be already never found... The set of versions, hundreds research expeditions, and can explain nothing years of investigations that has occurred that night!?
Investigations of the deaths suggest that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot in heavy snow; while the corpses show no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue. According to sources, the victims' clothing contained high levels of radiation, but no one from group do't work with radioactive objects.
Soviet investigators determined only that "a compelling unknown force" had caused the deaths. Entrance to the area after the incident was barred for three years. The chronology of the accident remains unclear due to the lack of survivors to the accident.
