Despite a rather small production, ascribable to a full length and two singles, Vzenemie (Внеземие) is a project worthy of mention because the form of funeral offered is not at all trivial and, indeed, turns out to be quite rich in concept. In Russian the moniker means Extraterrestrial, and this is already indicative of a cosmic feeling that finds a valid outlet in slow and atmospheric sounds. The long-distance work Raspad contains over an hour of a convincing musical expression, in its own way also quite varied as the work is a summa of what has been composed by Dmitry Kochkin in the previous ten years, so together with placid ambient carpets there are also more evocative and melodic passages.
