Comment: the simplest way to assure the title "Froid" does mean the music represented over the course of a handful of tracks. Of course, it does mean it does have much in common with the rest albums of the Sankt Peterburg, Russian one-man-project. Indeed, the listener should find out distinctive details and facets which used to differ from the other albums by System Morgue and thereafter you will have the base ultimately to shout out the substance being hidden behind the title. In fact, it would be way too different approach and way too pedantic and suffocating for enjoying music. The artist describes it as winter album having been recorded during winter months. The winter is the season for heroes. Between those meandering guitar layers with more or less hirsute accents you can enjoy deep yearning and broad dreams as if a way to conjure up something blissful and ennobling with quite simple solutions. It is shoegaze but it is not a My Bloody Valentine, it is darkwave but it is not a Lycia, it is ethereal wave but it is not a Cocteau Twins. All of that represented over there is System Morgue, one of the most perspective artists at the moment worldwide. At times, it is a pure power demonstration, at times it is a monument for pure feelings, at times those may be mixed up with one another. However, the whole ego of mine is subjugated to it. It is an avalanche in disparate meanings. The outing is a part of the discography of an imprint called Frozen Light.
