Symphonic Black Metal From The Coldest Depths of Siberia is what the new comers Welicoruss have brought with them to us here in Europe. Welicoruss appeared in Europe 2 years ago and they are already playing all the biggest festival across the whole Europe and playing over 280 concerts. You will be absolutely stunned by their stage performance and imagery as they take you away on a journey far away to Depths of Icy Cold Siberia and back.
Welicoruss played on almost all big metal festival of Europe like: Hellfest (France), Wave Gotik Treffen (DE-Leipzig), Ragnarok festival (DE-Lichtenfels), Wolfszeit Open Air, Exit Open Air festival (Serbia), Basinfirefest (Czech Republic), Made Of Metal (Czech Republic) and many more.
Lychgate’s music is often characterised by the dense layering of guitars, stacking together a rich combination of octaves and harmony, which morph with the organ performance, resulting in a unique texture and colour. The compositions often feature variations in tempo, meter and dynamics; sometimes overwhelming in nature such as the crescendo at the end of the track “Letter XIX”. Moods, although mainly atmospheric, range from subdued and reflective to brooding and aggressive. The press have already acknowledged avant-garde overtones in the music, which set the project apart from usual album releases. A European tour was conducted in November 2015 to coincide with the second album release.The band features members who have been part of other projects such as Esoteric, The one, Macabre omen, Acherontas, Lunar aurora and Omega centauri.
