Masha Scream's Russian wolf pack Arkona always bemuse me with its crushingly powerful and original sound, a mix of black metally brutality, folkloric bounciness and mystical research of ancestral roots. Ot Serdca K Nebu is the epitome of what that incredible band has been developing in the past years.

The musicality of Ot Serdca K Nebu is not quite as fast and heavy as Arkona's previous release Vo Slavu Velikim: only 5 tracks out of 12 (or 14 depending on the version) can be considered Extreme metal, while other ones are either folk music or a softer kind of Folk metal, which makes this album one of the most various I ever heard. For example, Strela, a traditional chant, is followed by Nad Propatsiu Let, a brutal and passionate track, and then by Slavsia Rus'!, a clean and catchy song. If you're an extreme metal fan, it might be tedious to go through this album and you might just skip to the growled vocals.

Rating: 9 Grandiose album, with a few 'fillers', but even they keep the listener occupied with russian war chants and sounds of the wilderness...almost too much to take in in one listen.
