Russian Karelian Neofolk outfit THEODOR BASTARD are proud to release “Zveroboi”, a brand new track which is specially written for the (horror) TV series of the same name! The song is now available on all digital platforms.
The band comments on the track: “Through the eye of a needle I’ll crawl into your dreams, just not to choke there from your tears…“
THEODOR BASTARD is one of Russia’s most unusual bands representing the electronic Karelian Neofolk genre. Also elements of Dark Wave and Trip Hop are present in the band’s music. The message doesn’t carry out everyday problems and is mainly focused on mythology and shamanism. The hallmarks of the band are the unique and bewitching lead vocals of multi-talent Yana Veva and the impeccable sound producing skills of Fedor Svolotch, founder of the band who created the band 20 years ago.
From album to album, THEODOR BASTARD carefully and masterly combine many different exotic and traditional instruments. The special northern atmosphere of their albums is created with Nordic nyckelharpa and jouhikko, primeval flutes created from tree roots and shamanic percussion.
THEODOR BASTARD’s music is set out to take listeners to unexplored and other worlds. From the cold and twilight realms of the marshy swamps of taiga and mossy tundra, to unexplored places where the earthly plane and the spiritual world are separated only by a thin ghostly veil. THEODOR BASTARD consists of 6 musicians, turning their performances into a dark magic act that sends the audience back to Northern musical traditions, to the Karelian and the Russian folk. The musicians use a variety of electronic devices and ethnic instruments, but also their own hand-made instruments from stones, human bone and the roots of Karelian birch.
