Sivyi Yar band from Vyritza settlement of Leningrad Oblast was formed back in 2006 and is solely a studio project. The author and the only member of the project is Vladimir. The lyrical part of Sivyi Yar is based on Slavonic mythology and poetry, the ideology of ultra conservatism as well as the phenomenon of separatism of Novgorod and the history of the struggle of the Republic of Novgorod against the violent christianization and the following looting.
For the first time Sivyi Yar came into notice with its Single “The land of fearless birds” including the material which instilled the hope that Russian black metal stage could reach the new stylistic horizons. That’s why the apparent authenticity and (in good meaning) archaism of the sound of the new album “Dual Faith” again intersperse with unordinary musical solutions: now in time with sludge rhythm section one can hear jaw harp (“Magic burning”), then crushing pagan metal storm is followed by melodic guitar riffs (“The fires are burning again”), which can rival the best representatives of such labels as Season Of Myst and Southern Lord.
