3 stars The news with this Nth Senmuth's album are mainly two: a new collaboration with the Turkish metallist "Serkan Falay" which, as Valery Androsov is very deeply into ethnic music other than metal and the fact that this is one of the very few Senmuth's albums which are not downloadable for free.

The "concept", whatever it is, comes from Falay, but neither Google has been able to translate the track titles. The music is very "Senmuth like", with the usual, and sometimes useless alternance of ethnic and metal moments. The metal parts are quite good, anyway. The addition of another musician and composer who is not just a guest gives the metal parts some more "salt".

Falkay plays also on the ethnic parts, as he plays the ud which is a typical Turkish instrument,similar to a big mandolin but fretless and curve like a lute. It can be listened throughout the album.

The album is only 33 minutes long, so quite an EP in the digital era, even though I remember shorter vinyls. Hakan is for me the best track, because even with all the drastic changes from metal to ethnic and vice-versa, it shows a bit of continuity. Not a bad album, but I haven't found anything special on it, surely because I have listened to about 100 albums of this very prolific artist. A newcomer can find it interesting, but for me there's nothing new here.
