MOON FAR AWAY is widely known in Russia for their beautiful neofolk and heavenly music. They draw their inspiration from the Northern Russia folklore
with songs and traditional instruments (percussions, guitar, carillon...) arranged with electronics. They create a religious and solemn ambience. A great revelation!

Review:
This Russian company fits perfectly between the other (dark) world music of Prikosnovénie. Anastasia has a sensitive beautiful voice that fits perfectly in this folk music with electronic influences. A feeling of hope, melancholia is created by the use of traditional instruments and the Russian lyrics. Sometimes dreamy, sometimes sensitive, but always atmospheric. The short ‘Sobiraetse Liubeznoy’ (‘The Beloved Is Fitting Out’) sounds as light headed pop music, but in general Moon Far Away goes much further than that. At those moments the band sounds like Dark Sanctuary without their bombast. Highlights with these influences are  ‘Zhito Zhala’ (‘Cropped Grain’), ‘Ty Vzoidi Krasno Solnyshko’ (‘Arise, You Red Sun’), ‘Zvetiki’ (Flowerets’) and ‘Ekoy Vania’ (‘What Vania’). Even when Count Ash sings along with Anastasia it sounds stunning. His dark, somewhat dim voice fits perfectly with the high sensitive voice of Anastasia. Listen for instance to ‘Volna Shumit’ (‘The Wave Makes A Sound’). It even sounds sometimes that Moon Far Away has the same inspiration like Faun which you can hear during ‘Iz-Za Gor’ (‘From Behind The Mountains’). The strangest song is ‘[SMERT]’ (‘Death’) because of the speaking voice over the melancholic music. That song needs some time to grow, but than it is one of the many highlights on this record. Moon Far Away has a brilliant record in their hands with this “Belovdie” 9/10 Beautevil - GOTHRONIC

MOON FAR AWAY par MOON FAR AWAY:

MOON FAR AWAY is a music project denying limiting borders of space, time and society. It creates mystical and ritual soundscapes in the framework of Gothic music.
Behind the consciously faceless visual image of the project there is the desire of the Project members to create a unified audio and semantic image as free from any human origin as possible. No matter how the Project members live or what they do outside MFA, it has no significance whatsoever for adequate understanding MOON FAR AWAY music.
A combination of classical traditional European culture and modern select avant-garde tradition, along with technology and mass-media development of modern civilization, merged with strict obedience to traditions reflecting the mentality of Russian North sea regions are the basis of MOON FAR AWAY philosophy…
