Comment: Morpheus` 14-track issue Alkemiisto is an intriguing issue because the artist’s original music is variegated with his own versions of such classical composers/musicians as Bach, Corelli, Vangelis, Abeni, Vildsvin, Chopin and additionally some video game numbers. It sounds interesting, isn’t? In stylistic and temporal terms it does mean Stanislav Rubyteno has opened possibilities to either unite or juxtapose old, baroque music with blackened ambient and neoclassical tunes. The general mood is resolutely murky and damp thereby allowing few chances to shed light upon in the middle of shadowplay. More concretely, hammering piano chords and solemn organ droning are unwound with yarning orchestrated passages and ominous, expressive ambient glimpses. Undoubtedly Rubyteno`s melancholy is beautiful and dignifying therefore bolstering the issue with quality. Get it.
