The Skinny: Doctor Veritas, the third album from Ukraine’s Experimental death/black metal act Svyatogor, is out now via Svarga Music. Along with melodic fragments and penetrating vocals, the solos smack of classical heavy metal and the saxophone gives the music jazz and art-rock tendencies, all of which is rooted in black metal. Lyrics are written in Russian, Ukrainian, English and French languages and devoted to the problems of society, preparation of human emotions, reflection on the subject of contemporary history, structure of the universe, and macrocosm.
Svyatogor features Amorth I.M. (ex-Drudkh, ex-Astrofaes, Underdark) and Master Alafern (Quintessence Mystica, Triglav, Thunderkraft). Doctor Veritas is officially distributed by Australis Records (Chile), Casus Belli Musica (Russia), Dead Shop (Ukraine), Fono (C.I.S.), My Kingdom Music (Italy), Rock Inc/Bertus (BeNeLux), The End Records (North America) and Code7/PlasticHead (UK & Worldwide).
