For some reason, this project is currently absent from the list of Azeri rock bands I've posted here a couple of days ago, even if it recently became a sensation far beyond the borders of Azerbaijan. That said, the early works of Violet Cold are indeed far from rock or metal. For instance, this EP (which is probably the first more or less lengthy release of Violet Cold, before which were only singles) is fairly soft-sounding instrumental space ambient / new age music. While Emin Guliyev aka Violet Cold gained international recognition by his later later works which are much heavier, this album is worth listening as well. Even if Emin (according to his own words) don't have any musical literacy, he surely has a talent of composing very beautiful atmospheric music.
