More Russian Compliments for ERODED

From me: I could hardly find any more or less complete information about them on the web, therefore will only describe my own blind experience and reflect on the images they generated. Will try not to slip out void screams of delight and admiration, as they don't really need them. But still, I haven't heard such strong, brutal, and yet expansive and sincere songs for a long time. They are languorously distant, not from this world, like aliens from the last century or ghosts rattling us (me), with pale faces and in stiff jackets (suits) of indistinct colour, and also with profound cheekbones. It is a magnificently vintage album. Don't think everyone should like it though - the music is nervous and it brings one strange satisfaction, but don't get me wrong. In essence: electro-pop in guitar smoke, non-trivial melodies and overall maturity.
They all look at me out of a dark corner and wait...
