Poyezd Rodina are a solo project from Russia that has been featured before in this zine and plays funeral doom metal and this is a review of his 2014 album "White Dal" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records, Wolfshade Records, and Silent Time Noise Records.
Train sounds and ambient style synths start off the album along with some programmed beats and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavy funeral doom metal direction along with some death metal growls and elements of Russian folk music and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Both of the atmospheric and heavy parts mix together quite a bit throughout most of the tracks along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and there are also some folk instruments being utilized at times and as the album progresses melodies can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a brief use of melodic vocals as well as a touch of black metal and all of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Poyezd Rodina plays a style of funeral doom metal on this recording that is very slow, dark, atmospheric and heavy and also adds in a touch of folk music, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics are written in Russian and cover death and politics of Russian Existentialism.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Poyezd Rodina and if you are a fan of funeral doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "White Dal" "Soldiers Sky" and "Station Powder". 8 out of 10.
