PEREPLUT - AT THE ANCIENT TIMES - STYGIAN CRYPT  
This Russian band was formed in 2011 and At The Ancient Times is the band's full length debut. Everything is in Russian but the band name and album are conveniently translated in the bio. The bio starts by saying that initially the band were going to play heavier folk metal ... initially! Band members listed include those who play cello, violin, flute, hurdy-gurdy, whistles and more. Ominous signs indeed. The opener is an instrumental, a simple mellow one that runs over three minutes. The first full song starts using the flute and various other non-metal instruments almost immediately. It however turns up the tempo and perhaps surprisingly is a somewhat thrashy song, for the most part. The contrasting mix continues into the next song and rarely deviates deep into the rest of the album. It is almost a constant duel between the drums, bass, vocals and guitars on the one side vs everything else on the other. The two sides compete for air time and when the former is winning it is not all that far from a Bay Area sound. It is questionable if such songs and album can satisfy either a thrash fan or a Korpiklaani/folk/pagan fan. Eight songs, an intro and an outro make up Pereplut's strange journey. Meet the two sides and decide at pereplut.bandcamp.com – Anna Tergel
