What it is, and why it s made this way, is a total mystery to me, because the Goth content is virtually zero on one level, and yet the magic and mayhem they cause is entirely Goth-relevant. So that s another sign of Russian Goth being so unpredictable that you have to keep a wily eye on it, because it can be so much more exciting than the usual.<br>  Saturating Cemetery as an opening track is like the tick-tocking of irate synths, with bells for company alongside rounded, impatient bass notes, and this music fills out with surety and instant intensity, as crunching electro of an edgy, arty sort should. Then in comes this big gruff, totally Russian voice, like out of a doomy historical epic. (Motherfucker Russia?) The music swells sweetly behind him as he gargles along, with tsars in his eyes. It is ridiculously hypnotic and sparkly, but based on a bed of nettles. It prickles and heaves happily and when the quicksilver backing vocals start to scoot about you know it is as convivial as Dvar, but essentially conventional. So, you ve been hit by their winning ways, and then you whimper over what s coming next.<br> It s called  The Seven Rays Of Da Kapa Preta and with a waltzing bass and stamping, treated vocals this is more Gothish but like some caveman goth trying be serious and profound only to find once his blindfold is removed he s on a trampoline. (Whee!) Pop to it s bleeding core - but I daresay guess cossack drinking songs were the original techno! - it has stages too, as they purr and boil, then cut into snappish mood. Think of 2 Unlimited splashing through a broken down sewer - Are you ready for Piss?  and it s similar, brilliant fun! Kitsch dance, thrust into the gloom but not afraid of the dark.<br>  The Pictures Of The Russian Village (Part 3) - The Forest Road is a magical musical landscape of echoes and enchanting synth all but replicating insects and muffled noise. Then Yura (for it is he!) begins to sing sweetly, making it a less blighted, claustrophobic region, only for it to close in again once he wanders away. The long  Clearness has fiendish dance mechanisms having a fit behind slow heartfelt vocals, and the percussion darts about behind the attractive female vocals of Anastasia (for it is she!) who fill the spaces delicately, as they gradually build, then pound and slug you repeatedly before dropping back to dripping noises, and gaseous synth sounds. Well creepy.  The End Of Summer by contrast is gentle and chiming with this thunking bass hanging vibrant before our eyes, and it manages to exist with some momentum despite being a bit daft really<br>  Sweetness provokes more mad vocals to hang in the air like a perverted wizard, then a fuzzy electro pop dance track starts his hips swaying, and she sings like an ailing diva. With a brilliant  Dr Sweetness chorus that is heavenly. And quite mad.  Stomenov Trip has deeper, rumbling, dribbling, da-da-da-dum vocals and seeping bass menace. There s also churchy sounds creeping from the morose climax.  Ori Egun then breaks out as supercharged dance, but goes all pastoral lyrically, sung in harmonious style, before we plunge back down a steep slope on a synth rollercoaster, which is totally invigorating.<br>  The Pictures Of The Russian Village (Part 40  The Horned Herdsman is wonderfully murky, and remains consistently strange until a very weird, stretched and squeaking ending.<br>  Eschathology Of Universeless features more crazed, shifting noise, yet just when you suppose they ll get darker until the album ends  The Little Song For The Little Devil steps out as a chirpy dance thing with twitching beats crosscut into its lunacy, and that takes you into  Dlo Kwala Manyan which is equally driven, but with divine vocal strafing amid the musical chafing.<br> You know, it s almost like this record is a modern soundtrack for the film Barbarella, it s that unusual, that commercial - in its own twisted way - and that wonderful. Let s play it again.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mickmercer.com/mmset.html" target="_blank">Review by Mick Mercer<a/></p> <img src="../Pictures/NS-SAT-FLAER.jpg" width="250px" height="250px" style="border: 2px solid silver;"> <br><br> <h3><p>Review by German ZILLO magazine (Germany)</p></h3> <p>Holle, ist diese Scheibe abgefahren! Denn was sich hinter dem Namen Necro Stellar verbirgt, its ein akustisches Horror-Kabinett par excellence. Ob gewollt oder nicht, das zweite Album des russischen Duos klingt wie der ideale Soundtrack zu einem bizarren Gruselthriller von Tim Burton. Irgendwo im Fahrwasser von Bands wie Das ich, Alien Sex Fiend oder Notre Dame agieren Necro Stellar, die stilistisch einen Sog aus Industrial, Post-Punk, Electro, Batcave, Psychedelic Rock und spacigen Atmospharen erzeugen. Immer wieder begegnen dem geneigten Horer Kinderliedmelodien, Kirchenorgeln, groteske Samples und minimalistische Loops, die zusammen mit antiquierten Electrosounds, Gitarrenklangen und Percussions eine ganz eigentumliche, soundtrackartige Mischung ergeben. Gro?en Anteil an dieser psychotischen Klangreise hat naturlich auch der pathetische, effektbeladene Gesang, der mal aher klassisch aus weiblicher und mal bedrohlich und tief aus mannlicher Kehle dringt. "Saturating Cemetery" ist also nichts fur schwche Gemuter, auf der nachsten Gothic-Horror-Party sollte der Longplayer aber keinesfalls fehlen.<br><br> Sascha Blach, ZILLO 09/2005<br> ________________________________________________</p> <h3><p>Review by Darklife magazine (Germany)</p></h3> <p> One of the most surreal releases I ve come across in recent times. Which means I love it. We said in the past, keep an eye of the fresh and untamed eastern wave as we had the pleasure to discover for you a few little treasures from Russia and the former Soviet lands. Hopefully nobody is gonna hold it against us, but, having experienced the dramatic  standardization of the original dark scene (like in English and Teutonic), this release from Necro Stellar just confirms that a greater degree of freshness characterizes a whole load of creations reaching us from the east. Don t get me wrong, is not that I think that Ministry or Das Ich should be binned altogether, what I want to say is that while the vast majority of our  dark heroes have become utterly predictable in comparison. This doesn t necessarily mean their music isn t good! So, what makes this album tick? A complex simplicity (or a simple complexity?) that boils down to fresh ideas and the talent of experimenting outsides pre-defined patterns. Take Sweetness for example, dark-electro-synth-garage-pop madness complete with operatic vocal insets and the  voices from beyond . Or The Seven Days of Da Kapa Preta, bringing the D.A.F legacy far out to new, uncharted limits. I reckon there being quite an input from popular music in here. On another level, the ability to trace out dark atmospheres, interleaving brighter moments, is remarkable. Stomenov Trip or Eschathology of Ununiversless are fitting examples, giving fans of Cold Meat products something to look out for. Ori Egon will be up your shopping list if you are into the Attrition/Das Ich sort of feel. Again, quite a departure from either band. On the whole, there s little to skip on this album, really. In fact, when it folds at just over one hour and 12 tracks, I m left with the feeling that it could have easily gone on for quite some time, to fulfill even weirder dark dreams. <br><br> Gianfri<br><br> ________________________________________________</p> <H3><p>Review by gothicparadise.com (USA) </p></H3> <p>This band caught me totally by surprise and at first listen I wasn't sure what to think. My first impressions were that the music was slightly goofy and an extremely strange sound mixing industrial with folk and cabaret. However, the more I have listened to this album, the more I enjoy it. It has quickly become a favorite of recent releases based on this extremely unique sound that is presented.<br> The name of the band Necro Stellar brings to mind a mix of death and macabre mixed with something sci-fi from outer space. Like the name suggests we're thrust into this dark mixture of mayhem with the title track "Necro Stellar" through it's haunting mix of synths, driving beats and deep robotic vocals. The first two minute intro sounds like something from a Halloween special track, yet this pattern keeps going throughout the track. This track sucks you and in and holds you as you really become entranced by their unique style. However, if you enjoyed the first track, you'll love the following piece "The Seven Rays of Da Kapa Preta". The sound on this track is so incredibly unique, it's hard to explain. Once again a short quiet intro kicks it off, but the listener is quickly bombarded with the harsh industrial vocals. But don't be fooled by this initial sound, the bass is catchy and the tones that are added are fun and addicting and really keeps you moving. The overall tone is fun and you can tell these two are having a blast creating their music. It's almost comparable to the punk scene, but in an electro-industrial vein.<br> After these two incredible introductory tracks we're left in an eerie sci-fi world as "The Pictures of the Russian Village (Part 3)" takes us deep into a spooky sounding alien world. This style drifts along in a sort of space-ambient industrial mix through several tracks in this album. This alien mood is broken up from time to time by the moody musical pieces like "Clearness" which picks up the vocals and fun soundscapes again or the very Attrition-sounding "Sweetness". This latter track is another that is catchy and hypnotic that will leave fans wanting more. But the disc moves on with more of this catchy sound and drifts in and out of the ambient soundscapes.<br> As the album starts to wrap up we're left with two bonus tracks which are both nearly 200 bpm and what could easily become something of a mix of Russian-electro-punk. "The Little Song For The Little Devil" picks this up first with a sweet electronic intro reminiscent of early 80's electro. In fact many songs on this album are like a mix of Grendel meets The Buggles where the industrial purist kills the new wave star. But this style works so well on this album and I don't think anyone else could really pull it off. After this short little intro it picks up like a tornado with vocoded robotic vocals and the fun electronics and driving beats. This gives way to the finale of the album "Dlo Kwala Manyan (Nothing remix by DJ Chton)" which is another whirlwind track that leaves the listener's head swirling as the disc finally comes to a close.<br> So there it is, this is something that people really need to check out especially if you want something that is completely unique and unforgettable.<br><br> <a href="http://www.gothicparadise.com" target="_blank">Gothic Paradise</a> 4.5/5<br> ________________________________________________</p> <H3><p>Review by wavepropaganda.org (Brazil) </p></H3> <p>Primeira e mais importante banda da Russia, o Necro Stellar surgiu em Moscow e traz neste seu primeiro cd, uma excelente mistura de dark electro, gothic rock, Industrial e medieval.

Overall its genius probably justifies how grandiose it can be, since there's nothing formulaic about it and it's fairly addictive. Quivering intros and the rattle of bones give way to whirling-dervish EBM dance beats and guttural, frothing vocals. Through the ominous build-up of cold-wave fog come spiky branches of sound, disturbed flocks of birds, and lost fragments of more innocent melodies and voices. Saturating Cemetery is a great example of creative electronics and a deliciously morbid imagination and composer Yura Zvezdniy's Russian roots are even revealed in it's rich earth. Like a cult film, it can does go right over the top.<br><br> Carolee.

NECRO STELLAR is a duet made up of YURA ZVEZNIY who is responsible for the music but also most of the vocals which range from dark growling to more typically Russian anthems (although some are probably samples taken from the traditional Russian music industry) and Anastasia who is a nice blonde girl providing some interesting vocals (mainly backing though). Their very own style is rather particular and their compositions are rather complex when it comes to more up-beat and ebm stuff. But the parts where they really begin to captivate their audience is when they start developing more oppressive and gloomy atmospheres. With almost the half of the album, they plunge us into a nightmarish world filled by various noises (both natural and electronically processed) and through which we finally find an explanation to the title of the album. Really intriguing and attractive band which deserve more attention. NECRO STELLAR is the living proof that the Russian scene has developed its own identity.

Die Band besteht aus Yuri Zvezdniy und Anastasia Podnebesnaya und ist neben der Musik sehr auf eine asthetische Prasentation bedacht, angefangen beim Artwork der CDs und der Gestaltung der Homepage bis hin zum perfekt durchgestylten Image der Band. Musikalisch lassen sich Necro Stellar allerdings nur schwer fassen. Auch wenn das Fundament der Band elektronisch dustererer und durchweg tanzbarer Natur ist, so sind es doch die musikalischen Details, die Necro Stellar unverwechselbar machen. Zuweilen schimmert in den Melodien und der Art des Gesangs die melancholisch russische Volksseele und Schwermut durch und ein gewisses Ma? an Experimentierfreudigkeit durch die verwendeten Sounds, Samples oder Songstrukturen lasst sich ebenfalls nicht verleugnen, doch einem konkreten musikalischen Vergleich entzieht man sich im Lager Necro Stellars geschickt.  Saturating Cemetary besitzt daruber hinaus einen gewissen, auf fruhen Dark Wave-Bands beruhenden Retro-Charme, der fasziniert aber lange nicht so dick aufgetragen ist wie beispielsweise bei Bands wie Welle Erdball. Necro Stellar ins in ihrem kunstlerischen Agieren deutlich subtiler, durchdachter und ohne Frage sehr viel anspruchsvoller. Grob mogen zuweilen Deine Lakaien als Vergleich herhalten, doch auch dies kann und darf nur als vager Anhaltspunkt dienen, was alleine durch den phasenweise weiblichen Gesang von Anastasia deutlich wird. Necro Stellar ist eine jener Bands, die ihre Chance bei einem der grossen deutschen Festivals ohne Frage zu nutzen wussten, so sie denn die Gelegenheit fur einen Auftritt bekommen wurden. <br> _________________________________________________</p><br> <H3><p> 5F5=78O A09B0 <a href="http://theflamejob.blogspot.com" target="_blank">theflamejob.blogspot.com</a></p></H3> Necro Stellar. Caramba... acho que poucas vezes o nome de uma banda soou tao perfeito. O som destes russos (!) e um amalgama de influencias sombrias, off-road total das pistas de corrida do Grande Premio Hype do Mes. Um cadaver em decomposicao cujos vermes comem e regurgitam sonoridades originais que a inteligentsia indie pos-moderna viraria po  tal qual um vampiro a luz do sol  se fosse exposta a alguns segundos de audicao. Dark wave, ebm, hard techno, pos-industrial& Necro Stellar!!! - porra, o nome da banda e o seu proprio rotulo musical: decomposicao sonora vinda do espaco, climas pra la de tetricos produzidos eletronicamente para que guitarras saturadas, canticos das tumbas e vocais com quilos de efeitos joguem tudo que faria o terror para um fa daquilo que a Revista Bizz elege mensalmente como o que voce tem que ouvir.<br> [A proposito, alguem ai da geracao download compra aquela revista?!? Se eles  o pessoal da Bizz  pregam tanto o  fim da industria musical e  a livre troca de conteudo pela internet , entao o povo que cresceu chamando  musica de  arquivo nao vai gastar dez paus num amontoado de informacoes em papel cujos milhoes de web site dao as noticias instantaneamente. Acho que eles devem falar para as paredes e para velhacos rabugentos como eu ficarem descendo o pau  ter 31 anos hoje e ser mais ultrapassado do que ter esta idade ha dez anos atras, ao que me dizem por ai...] <br> Continuando... <br> E o disco destes zumbis russos se chama  Saturating Cemetery  ! Um cliche gotico para um conceito novo?!? Realmente nao tem mais o que inventar, por isso re-inventam. So que volto a bater na tecla do paragrafo primeiro deste texto: nao tem nada do que postam por ai na midia indie mainstream (redundante ou contraditorio este adjetivo? Eu e que nao vou responder novamente...) sobre o que e bom, nao criaram rotulo ainda para o som desta banda. Por via das duvidas, chamo o estilo deles de... necro stellar! Portanto, se voce ainda acha que pode descobrir algum som por seus proprios meios, levando tapas na cara e/ou ouvindo algum pensando que era outro, baixe via banda-larga o espirito destes russos simpaticos ( Cemiterio Parque da Paz agradece!), ouca num quarto escuro (olha o cliche! olha o cliche!), beba um vinho barato e acenda uma vela. E veja a cera derreter ate a ponta do dedao do seu pe, o vinho pegar fogo (vinho bom nao queima!) e fazer com que voce, apavorado, tire o Necro Stellar do mp3 player (ouvir som no CD-player e coisa de velho!) e bote pra tocar o disco de 2007 dos canadenses do Arcade Fire ( Neon Bible ), que andaram postando por ai que se trata de uma  obra-prima sombria  e o pior que e mesmo, pois se trata de um discaco!!! Porem, com embalagem chique demais para tamanha cara-de-pau disfarcada... <br> Pois e... os hypados do Arcade Fire chuparam o sangue de cadaveres oitentistas que poucos (nem eles proprios, inclusive) ai atualmente teriam coragem de admitir suas influencias: Echo & The Bunnymen, Bauhaus, Southern Death Cult - e mais in citar o Joy Division, pois prestar tributo para gente morta (cadaver novamente!) e mais lisonjeiro! Mas os caras do Arcade enfiaram conceitos no disco e despistaram todo mundo sobre suas verdadeiras origens. Tambem, pudera: entregar influencias goticas dentro do hype pega mal. Vampirinhos, Evanescence, Marylin Manson, RPGs do mal... e a superficie  ou melhor, a cova-rasa da parada, e caricato, e tao cafona pra este pessoal antenado quanto dizer que curte Motorhead ou AC/DC, sons acefalos por natureza, burros demais para serem dignos de textos aprofundados em bloggs da vida, porem dotados de emocao genuina. Bom, ate agora, estao exumando ilicitamente cadaveres que estavam enterrados a sete palmos abaixo. No processo de cremacao dos downloads e seus idolos instantaneos, pega bem disfarcar tal pilhagem com punhetagem conceitual. Por essas e outras que o som do Necro Stellar vai ficar preso numa vila de zumbis  muitos e verdade. Vao direto ao ponto sem floreios: e som sombrio para gente que curte isso, e eletronica radical para mentes devidamente formatadas. E inocente e vazio para quem procura pela salvacao-conceitual de qualquer donwload que o valha. Apesar das contra-indicacoes, arrisque-se. Um download tambem pode ser surpreendente, seja para te emocionar ou para te enojar. <br> *Nao fosse um amigo meu, Carlos Alberto, vulgo DJ Angel, parceiro meu nas festas Dark Street, eu nunca haveria de conhecer o som de russos e tambem japoneses, romenos, venezuelanos (aguardem os proximos capitulos!) que produzem musica esquisita e sem amarras com conceitos pseudo-alternativos. A proposito, o mesmo Angel descobriu o Necro Stellar por indicacao pessoal do fera Alex Twin, da conceituada banda de goth-synthpop multinacional 3ColdMen - gente que esta no olho de um furacao que nao sai na previsao do tempo do Jornal Nacional nem da MTV. Nao conhece? Nao sabe o que esta perdendo... <br> <i>Postado por Fabio Martins</i> <br> _________________________________________________</p><br> <H3><p> 5F5=78O ?>;LA:>3> 8=B5@=5B 6C@=0;0 Dark Planet</p></H3> <p> Podczas poznawania zespoBw zza wschodniej granicy nie mogBam w koDcu nie trafi na Necro Stellar.

Trudno odpowiedzie na to pytanie, poniewa| mamy do czynienia z r|norodno[ci gatunkw gBwnie zaklasyfikowanych pod darkwave. Utwory mocno r|ni si od siebie tempem i otoczk. Obok wolnych i melancholijnych, instrumentalnych utworw znajduj si kawaBki szybkie i taneczne. Tak samo jest z wokalem nawet w jednej piosence mamy do czynienia z przeplataniem czystych gBosw damskiego i mskiego, growlem oraz gBosem przerabianym elektronicznie. MogBo by si zdawa, |e za du|o tego, ale jednak nie. Panuje tutaj idealna rwnowaga, ktra daje ciekaw aran|acje wraz z muzyk.

Inne kawaBki mog si wyda nawet troch kiczowate, szczeglnie przez prost melodi, za prost w niektrych momentach, ale za to wpadajc w ucho. Chocia| mi to osobi[cie nie przeszkadza, nie mo|na caBe |ycie sBucha ambitnych i skomplikowanych utworw. <br> Osobi[cie musz przyzna, |e "Saturating Cemetery "to mj zdecydowany faworyt w[rd pByt Necro Stellar, by mo|e z sentymentu, by mo|e ze wzgldu na to, ze zawiera jeden z lepszych kawaBkw "Sweetness". Przede wszystkim nie zawiera utworw, ktre dra|ni moje uszy, jak to si zdarza na innych pBytach zespoBu. A zr|nicowanie utworw powoduje, |e sBucha si jej z przyjemno[ci. <br> WysBany przez: Nenar<br> Zaakceptowane przez: Void<br> WysBano: 2008-05-03<br> <br> _________________________________________________</p><br> <p><BIG><strong>TEXTS</strong></BIG><br><br> <p><strong>SATURATING CEMETERY</strong><br><br> Life goes on and rain drops fall down<br> No beginning and no end<br> Wind pulls dry trees to the soft ground<br> Time pours on wet leaf s hands<br> &nbsp; Summer is near now.
