OLD SILVER KEY is a new project as envisioned by prolific Ukrainian musician Roman Saenko (DRUDKH, HATE FOREST, DARK AGES, BLOOD OF KINGU) and which features Stephane “Niege” Paul on vocals, Saenko on guitar, Roman “Thurios” Blahykh on guitar, Vlad on drums, keyboards and piano and Krechet on bass.
“Here is the OLD SIVER KEY that opens the door into a world of witches, cunning foxes, talking wolves, where a poor farmer's boy wins the hand of a princess while the prince sulks as a frog,” [tells the tale the press release] ‘Tales Of Wanderings’ take you into the fairy tale world of childhood and logs burning in the fireplace. Yet there is often a twist darker than the stories of the Brothers Grimm to these songs. This comes as no surprise as the mastermind behind the musical tales is Roman Saenko of DRUDKH. Having explored more progressive ways on their latest output ‘Handful Of Stars’ (2010), Roman decided it was time to go even further, but in a new project. In ALCEST singer Neige, the Ukrainian found the perfect collaborator and the OLD SILVER KEY was born. All members of DRUDKH gladly joined in the making of ‘Tales Of Wanderings’ that only offers a murky glimpse of the black metal roots and turns to something warmer and lighter without losing the raw earthen spirit, which the band reluctantly calls post rock to give their brainchild a name. Yet OLD SILVER KEY offers something more, which is hard to describe, but takes you on a mental journey full of amazement and wonder. Close your eyes, listen carefully and discover a new side to the Ukrainians! [Recognize and understand!]”
