2 stars With this album, Valery Androsov, aka Senmuth, is back to esotheric arguments. Well it's mainly virtual, as all the tracks are instrumental, except for a radio speech (in Russian) on the 4th track. It looks like Senmuth takes an argument and composes the music keeping the track title in mind.

This time, Egypt is far. I don't know what the first track is about, but "noem" should be about giving names to things, an argument that he will later resume in his album "Nomen Est Omen". The tracks mention the Celiabinsk meteor supposed to be fallen into the Chebarkul lake close to that city, the Luxor hotel in Los Angeles which is told to host paranormal activities which caused the deaths of 19 persons during the years, this kind of dark and obscure things...apart of "This is 404" which is the HTTP error message for "Name not found".

The music is quite usual for who knows this artist. There are less orchestral accents and no ethnic interludes, which is good. The Celiabinsk track is quite good, but in the end is the same kind of things that can be found in almost any of the more than 200 albums released under the Senmuth name.

The longest track is the closer "Fin Ontos" which I don't think is about American tanks. It should be something related to the ancient Greece. Not too different from the rest, but is more developed. I have the impression that the artist has given a bit more effort to this one than to the other album tracks.

Quite good if you are new to Senmuth (and like the genre), absolutely non-essential if you are already into his music.
