"Towards The Twilight", is the latest work of Vladimir within a frame work of his individual Black Metal project SIVYJ YAR. The EP takes the author and the listener further into the sundown realm of unearthly dreams that the music of this band evokes.

The title song is a tribute to one of the darkest visionaries within Russia's deep underground dark ambient community – Roman Sidorov (and his one-man band Staruha Mha), who hung himself in autumn of 2003. Thesong starts with almost-major riff, to which Vladimir declamates,shrieking (properly harsh) his simple yet dramatic verses through graceful but disturbing, resonant and multilayered panels, where undercovered by thick ambient gauze, guitars and drums smoke their crossing also by cattish acoustic soundscapes – until comes the perfect timing for a battery salvo.

The second track is a desperate lamentation addressed to Motherland's soil, sloshed with a blood of the fratridical Civil War – a piece of classic Depressive Black Metal/Post Metal, fueled with Pagan anger and heavily inspired by Ivan Bunin's "The Cursed Days".

As a coda you get estranged stars twinkling above the firry abyss,in the timeless barathrum of which the weepings of women are echoing and ashes of funeral fires glow.
