This is quite a find, a enigmatic Ukranian band led by one Roman Saenko, who apparently has fronted a couple of other Ukranian black metal bands, among them Hate Forest. Autumn Aurora, the band's second release, is a fine example of the sort of atmospheric, laid-back pagan black metal that Burzum made popular several years ago, with some similarities to other bands such as Primordial and perhaps early Empyrium. The guitars ebb and flow, the vocals sparse and distant, the mood wintry and frozen, clearly influenced by the Norwegian scene though not the blastbeat variety. Very well done.
