WINDSWEPT is the latest musical brainchild of Roman Sayenko. The DRUDKH mastermind is known to separate ideas that stylistically diverge from his main creative outlet into different projects such as OLD SILVER KEY, PRECAMBRIAN and RATTENFÄNGER among others.

WINDSWEPT remains relatively close to DRUDKH in comparison to other outlets of Sayenko's inspiration as it stays within the classic expression of Ukrainian black metal. Yet 'The Great Cold Steppe' is deliberately kept harsh and raw, which reflects the album's theme that was inspired by the hostile and fierce Eastern steppes during winter time.

'The Great Cold Steppe' was written and recorded in only three days without rehearsals and based on improvisation with instruments and vocals creating the feeling and grit of a live performance.

Better turn on the heating before listening as WINDSWEPT come in hard and merciless like a blizzard from 'The Great Cold Steppe'.
