DRUDKH are continuing their planned series of split-EPs with the acclaimed Swedish underground one-man project GRIFT. After drawing lyrical inspiration from the poetry of Soviet murdered Ukrainian writer Volodymyr Svidzins'kyi (1885-1941) on the previous split-EP with HADES ALMIGHTY 'One Who Talks With The Fog / Pyre Era, Black!', mastermind Roman Sayenko has again decided to bring two national poets into the focus. The lyrics for "His Twenty-Fourth Spring" were penned by Bohdan-Ihor Antonych (1909–1937). The family of Mike Johansen (1895–1937) was of German and Lithuanian decent and arrived in DRUDKH's hometown Karkhiv at the end of the 19th century. His words were used in the song "Autumn in Sepia". The two tracks come in classic DRUDKH style, which mainly consists out of an atmospheric amalgamation of bleak rawness with epic melodies, but always has a richness of small details derived from any suitable musical genre.
