KYPCK
Cherno
(Century Media Records)
54:24min

The Doom community had been a very deserted place over the last couple of years. The revival started with bands like AHAB one or two years ago and the record companies are again quite interested to release this kind of music. KYPCK, the Russian word for KURSK is a more than suitable name for a band which is trying to give grief and other relevant feelings musically a dark face. The band has one ex – SENTENCED band member in their line-up, but this is no guarantee for a quality release (also not a place in the Finnish top ten). But if you get used to the pure Russian lyrics the 54 minutes will for sure become a dark trip to the oceans of this planet where you can’t find a single drop of daylight. Every song is offering another shade of black and grey and songs like ‘The Black Hole’ with a dark acoustic part of nearly 4 minutes let you feel your walls coming down. Especially when the band is working with thin air, means creating the essential dark atmosphere through bass and guitar without any vocal support you can see the great potential of this band. I think “Cherno” deserves the term Doom Metal for 100 %, so book your trip to your private abyss and join KYPCK on their voyage to the bottom of the sea. www.centurymedia.com, www.kypck-doom.com
