Roman Sidorov - Discography


Roman Sidorov was a musician from Russia with a lot of different projects. I just discovered some of his stuff on youtube recently, but had a hard time finding links to all of his stuff, so I'm sharing it here now.
He's mostly known for a dark ambient project called "Staruha Mha"(rus. "Старуха Мха"), but I was more interested in his other stuff, which is mostly a mix of very slow guitar riffs with a lot of reverb, kind of distant vocals and a bit of minimalistic ambient thrown into the mix. You can get an impression of it yourself here:

The above video is from Roman's project "Sedative" and yeah it is fucking amazing. He has two other projects which are very similar to this one, called "Fatal" and "Der Golem".
Sadly Sidorov killed himself in 2003, but the music he left behind is amazing...
(Of course Sidorov didn't record these all alone, but I don't know a lot about the other band members).

Bardcore is more of a fun project, it's not that good  so I don't recommend listening to it.

  4. Greetings from Russia. Just wanted to add a couple of words about Roman Sidorov's colleagues and fellow musicians. The name of one of Roman Sidorov's friends was Dmitry ("Mitya") Zubov. They worked together on two Der Golem albums (Zmet and Дисциплина Взорванных Мостов (The discipline of blown-up bridges)). Sadly enough, Mr. Zubov died several years ago and thus there aren't any living members of this band left. Dmitry himself had a couple of projects of his own that mainly dealt with various genres of electronic music.
