Casus Belli Musica and Beverina Productions will release the debut mini-album of Путь Птиц (Bird’s Way) on August 10th, 2015. The authors of the project are the arranger Aleksey Solov’yev (Сердце-Камень, Чернава Яра, ex-Alkonost) and the female singer Aleksandra Terekhina, who create in a vein of nordwave folk, combining strongly marked rhythmical patterns, epic melodies, inclusions of the male choir and heartfelt female vocal parts. The songs of Путь Птиц are the interweaving of images brought to Aleksandra Terekhina (an ethnographer by training) during ethnographic expeditions in Siberia, authentic themes of indigenous Arctic ethnic groups and fine books read in youth. The mini-album is released in vinyl format as one-sided 12”LP (half transparent blue with white, dark blue and red splatters) in an edition of 100 numbered copies (85 copies in standard envelopes, and 15 copies in lined board envelopes finished with velvet). Every copy of LP includes a code for download of the digital version with additional materials including lyrics in Russian and English. The lyrics are translated into English by the translator Sergey AR Pavlov ((Аркона, Alkonost, Munruthel, Hagl, Master). The mini LP is already available for pre-order in their label’s Bandcamp page (see link below).
