Whoever the fuck this band is, they were going for pure DOOM. Very dark and gritty-sounding, the production suffers slightly with scratchy guitars, but it works oh so well for this style of music. One word to describe this demo is "deliberate". Very slow-paced and controlled, this one song demo starts off with an almost march beat, slowly but surely plodding on, making sure everything stays together in one place. A sharp, purposeful riffs breaks out a minute or so in and holds for the rest of the song, steadily building off its solid foundation. Things start picking up at about the six minute mark and we're soon hit with another core riff; yet another piece to this concrete puzzle. Alternating between soulful riffing and frigid drilling, we also have a few doomy solos thrown into the mix sounding of cries of desperation and anguish.
The vocals are dirty and harsh to the max. Cold as winter, there is no respite in these words as they match the sound of the guitars in their unforgiveness. Ocassional clean vocals break out in traditional Russian (?) style, well-placed to bridge the 13 minute song.
This demo sounds like it was recorded in the early 90s, but again, that's just speculation.
