MOON FAR AWAY, a group from Archangelsk, became widely known in 1996 in Russia at the
demo level. In quest of slipping-off truth, the band is moving along culture labyrinths of diverse
ethoses and times, trying to combine, it would seem, non-combinative cultural layers bound in fact
by deep interrelations - threads coming from one Original Source. The debut CD is a mixture of
ethnic motives and elements of European medieval musical culture, using principles of free
improvisation and quite a share of esotericism. EXOTICA Records press-release, 1997

FAR AWAY is the band whose debut album "Lado World" was with the single heart
recognized as the first true gothic release in Russia. In 10 years of they
existence this Arkhangelsk ritual darkwave \ neo-folk project became the cult
one on a Russian dark scene and became very popular abroad. The tracks of the
band were presented both in Russian and foreign compilations of the dark scene.
The musical press gives excellent reviews on all MOON FAR AWAY creations. You
can find picture of the band as the centerfold in German magazine Zillo.
Japanese director Shusei Nishi made a film that is devoted to the MOON FAR AWAY
”Belovodie” is the first studio disk in last five years and the third full-frame studio album in the history of the band. Like previous releases of MOON FAR AWAY “Belovodie” has it's own concept. From the very beginning the band underlines in different ways the ritual component in it's creative work and it's closeness to ancient traditions. And at the same time journalists were asked by the question - why does the band ignore in it's creative work the Russian north tradition theme that is the subject of interest of the musicians? So that is the moment! The new album almost all consists of folk songs of the Arkhangelsk state in original arrangement of MOON FAR AWAY.
For the first time the release date in Russia coincides with the official release date abroad - the worldwide release and distributed by Prikosnovenie Records, France. On the territory of the ex-USSR states the new disk of the band is released by the label Shadowplay Release with the additional new track which is absent in foreign version. By the agreement with the band European and Russian versions have different sleeve-design that could be the reason for troubles for true collectors.
