The Heretic

The Heretic
(Drakkar - 2000)

The CD starts with spoken words and a few may recognize the voice from the Metalium debut - Mike Terrana. Soon the symphony sounds, dark and full of tragedy kinda make you feel the misery of The Heretic. This album is definately noting to listen to while doing anything else! The theme of the album is the witch-hunt based on historical documents from Russia, Germany and America. So the story been told in German by Peavy Wagner and in Russian by Victor himself, the words are not the same, just the theme is identical. The idea for this album Victor had quite a while ago and he started working on that with his father Dimitri who is a well-known composer in Russia and a professor at the Music Academy in Minsk. The symbiosis of the classical orchestral music and the modern metal sounds make this special and outstanding!
