After numerous gigs (including Doom Over Kiev, Moscow Doom Fest, and supporting Saturnus, Mourning Beloveth and Autumnia among others), a self-released demo and an EP, Vin de Mia Trix come up with their debut full-length “Once Hidden From Sight.” Blending together various doom sub-genres, the album from the Ukrainian band is a culmination of over 3 years of writing and perfecting their own sound. Lengthy mid-tempo opuses with crushing funeral riffs morphing into melancholic acoustic passages create a mysterious and dark atmosphere with songs rooted between Funeral and Death/Doom Metal, but incorporating bits of Black Metal, Post-Rock, Progressive Metal, Blues and some other genres. Co-released by Hypnotic Dirge Records and Solitude Productions with a 12-page booklet with lyrics included, “Once Hidden From Sight” offers every fan of dark music something for the soul!
So was this your sweetest dream,
The peak of your desires?
To conquer and to rule,
Cognize and analyze.
This persistent electric light
Of your ever-glowing reason
Is but a torch in the heart of caves:
Seeing something, you miss the whole.
You say that gods are dead,
So who’d you worship now?
Some truths, they never change
As laws and customs do.
I saw your shining kingdom
Of glass and stainless steel.
No gallows or noisome gutters,
But why so cold and bleak?
Staring at the abyss,
Is it you who stare?
You’ve explained both stars and atoms,
But where do those nightmares come from?
You’ve lit the blackest night.
…Have you evaded the dark?
from Once Hidden From Sight,
