Gary Davidson Vjuga is the most beautiful fully loaded triple decker musical sandwich featuring Black Metal, Post Metal and Post Rock. Like any great sandwich once you get your teeth into it some of those ingredients spill out and are picked up in the surrounding tracks.

If this album leaves you unsatisfied then you must have one hell of a musical appetite.

Great work comrades. Favorite track: Vjuga.

CARPAGE Notice the descriptive tags at the bottom of this page, there are ELEVEN different genre descriptions! SMAD are impossible to pigeonhole, yeah they are that good! I wondered if they could top DUST, and Hell if they haven't! Passionate, ass kicking music with an incredibly tight rhythm section, one of the best bands in all eleven genres! Favorite track, the epic WOJNA. Favorite track: Wojna.

It is said that almost every element on Earth was formed at the heart of a star. Our bodies are made of their remnants and massive explosions in the galaxies. Everything we are originates from stardust and it continually floats through us.

We are impermanent. We are nothing more than a pattern or a process yet we are at odds with our self-perception. We choose to complicate life. We design a life of self-inflicted stress, negativity and broken habits. We constantly seek control. We do not accept what is and we do not let go of what was. We lose faith in ourselves and in our journey. There are times we wish our life away.

There is a need for change, a change Show Me A Dinosaur also felt they needed after their critically acclaimed 2011 debut “Evolvent EP” and 2014 dark, brooding masterpiece “Dust”. This genre-defying band, consummate masters at blending post-metal, post-rock, shoegaze and ambient doom, felt an unwavering desire to also explore a far more desperate and harsher black metal sound, to persuade listeners to identify what is truly important to them and shift the focus of their determination. Music that would awaken their decisiveness to fearlessly choose to walk their own path, away from those who hate, who seek only war and require the sacrifice of happiness and self-respect.

This trailblazing Saint Petersburg band now consisting of Pavel Gorshkov (Guitar), Artem Selyugin (Guitar, Vocals), Anton Gataullin (Bass) and Aleksandr Vershinin (Drums) has evolved into one of the most intense and awe-inspiring bands in Europe. Mixed and mastered by Mikhail Kurochkin, “Show Me A Dinosaur” is a juggernaut of raw emotions and technical prowess, fuelled with a sense of urgency, encouraging listeners to follow their bliss and live life to the fullest.
-Elusive Sound

Show Me A Dinosaur’s sound has really evolved since their last album, “Dust” and they gave us a glimpse of their future when they released the “Vjuga” single. This vision of the future has become fully realized with the release of this self-titled album, and it is truly something special.
Show Me A Dinosaur has raised the bar, and married post-rock and black metal into something I’ve never heard before. It has a lot of the characteristics from both genres at the forefront of their sound, but nothing gets muddled in the mix. The blast beats, frantic strumming with overdriven guitars, and the screams drowning in the noise dominate the sound, but the structure of the sound is signature post-rock, flowing riffs and swaying melodies, creating passages from one feeling to the next.
The production is top-notch, the mixing is everything I would hope for, and the sheer amount of skill that it takes to make something so cutting-edge is wildly impressive.

Track Name: Rakev
Еще не осень! Если я
Терплю, как осень терпит лужи,
Печаль былого бытия,
Я знаю: завтра будет лучше.
Я тыщу планов отнесу
На завтра: ничего не поздно.
Мой гроб еще шумит в лесу.
Он - дерево. Он нянчит гнезда.
Track Name: Vjuga
Отеческий дом, мой теплый очаг
Всегда здесь были мне рады
Но разрушен остов и приспущен наш флаг
Внутри разорвались снаряды
Холодным дыханьем лес говорит
«Беги! Ты так напуган..»
Замерзшие мысли, еще один взгляд
Всё покрывает вьюга.
Track Name: Lights
Твои глаза
Бескрайние, зеленые, там я бегу туда
Где в памяти тревожнее нет места
Пролистаю книгу снов дотла
Вернусь в реальность холодных дождей

Мы встретимся там, где будет светло
Закрывая глаза, взлететь высоко
Мы встретимся там, где будет светло
Упасть в океан, камнем на дно
Track Name: Gone
Небо во тьме
В холодных руках тлеет свет
По следам на земле
Нас никогда не найти
И на крик в тишине
Не услышать ответа
Остаться или уйти
Сделать первый шаг вперед
Track Name: Wojna
Война
Хруст костей
Миллионов сломанных судеб
Сливаются в песню во имя идей
Пары тщеславных ублюдков
