Limited vinyl LP pressing of this 2015 release, the fourth album by the atmospheric black metal phenomenon from Belarusian Swamps. Vietah is the brainchild of Antarctis, an artist hailing from the city of Gomel situated in the southeastern part of Belarus, close to the Ukrainian border. Over the years I Hate has worked hard to put the spotlight on former Eastern Bloc artists, who rarely get the attention they deserve from metal fans or media. Such a description is spot on in the case of Vietah! In a state where the political regime (in conspiracy with the church) does not look lightly upon metal-extreme metal in particular-and takes every chance to counteract or shut down everything not fitting their agenda, Vietah has managed to stay active for ten years, releasing four convincing full-length albums to date. Antarctis handles all instruments himself and delivers some really desperate vocals sung in the Belarusian language, giving his creations a unique touch - the folk soul of the Belarusian people permeates through Vietah's incantations.
