Among the not-so-numerous Russian neofolk bands of the early 2000s, Embrace Of Branches (and the related projects, such ans Lanquor and Hazeldusk) were among the most obscure, despite having relatively well-known musicians (including Wolfsblood, an editor of the Seidr webzine) in their line-up. The only their legacy is a couple of interviews and one CD-R, recorded at their live performance with Neutral in some theatre in Moscow. Of course, you shouldn't expect much from such a recording, but at least it's better than nothing (for instance, I couldn't find any recordings of Hazeldusk even after a very extensive search), and I actually liked it better than later solo works by Wolfsblood. There's also one bonus track recorded in a studio, with is probably the best on the whole CD. Too bad they didn't manage to record a proper album...
