Psychonaut 4 - "40%" [2011]

Artist: Psychonaut 4
Title: 40%
Genre: DSBM, Post-Black Metal/Rock
Country: Georgia
Release date: 2011

Track List:
  1. Serial Lier
  2. Parasite
  3. Antihuman [Drug = Друг]*
(*  for those who don't understand: "друг" means "friend" in Russian, and it's also a direct transliteration of the English word "drug", although the pronunciation is different; therefore, "drug" - "friend")

And right after I posted an album by a straight edge hardcore band - here's another ex-USSR band, but with an ideology diametrally opposed to that of Partybreaker. Psychonaut 4 are a depressive black metal band from Tbilisi formed in 2010, whose main lyrical themes are alcoholism, drug addiction, and self-destruction in general. Initially they thought to release only one demo (this one), but after it received a lot of positive responces from the audience, they decided to release a full-length album, "Have A Nice Trip", and only then split up (they'll play their last show on January 24, 2013 at the Old Cinema Studio in Tbilisi). Personally I like the demo more than the LP, and would recommend it to anyone who likes Lifelover and similar projects. Here's a Russian-language interview with their vocalist, if anyone's interested.
