about

More than five years of silence could suggest that the album "The Invisible Hand of Market" released in 2014 was the last sign of life of this Russian project. However, the musicians of the Cyclotimia duo, who consistently create soundtracks for a society of global capital dominance in their works, still have something to say, as it turns out.

The album “Regnum” consists of six tracks (the CD version additionally contains a long-playing bonus track) and lasts for about half an hour. The compositions have a distinctive vibe of “the blessed 80ies” typical for the synthwave genre that has been in fashion in recent years, yet they distinctively go beyond the borders of this predominantly stereotyped style towards rhythmic post-industrial.

"Regnum" comes out in turbulent times. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that the cover shows a man walking on a deserted night street into the unknown? And although the musical atmosphere doesn’t inspire anything optimistic in the end, the opening track with the characteristic name “Battlefield” is apparently intended to set the listener in a combat mood in relation to the future.

Более пяти лет затишья вполне могли натолкнуть на мысль, что вышедший ещё в 2014 году альбом "The Invisible Hand of Market" ("Невидимая рука рынка") был последней весточкой от этого отечественного проекта. Однако, как выяснилось, музыкантам дуэта Cyclotimia, последовательно создающим в своих работах "саундтрек" к обществу господства глобального капитала, всё ещё есть что сказать.

Альбом "Regnum" (лат. "Царство") состоит из шести треков (CD-версия дополнительно содержит долгоиграющий бонус-трек) и длится около получаса. Композиции хоть и имеют ярко выраженный привкус благословенных восьмидесятых, свойственных модному в последние годы стилю "synthwave", тем не менее, ощутимо выбиваются за рамки этого по преимуществу шаблонного направления в сторону ритмичного "post-industrial".

"Regnum" выходит в турбулентные времена – как для мира, так и для нашей страны. Возможно неслучайно обложка альбома показывает нам человека, шагающего по пустынной ночной улице в неизвестность? И хотя музыкальная атмосфера в конце концов не внушает ничего оптимистического, однако открывающий альбом трек с характерным названием "Battlefield", видимо, всё же призван настроить слушателя на боевой лад по отношению к грядущему.
