Pointless video post for Christmas Eve - ‘Христос Анести’ by Пастырь

Interesting new band from Russia, this folk-metal foursome Пастырь! It’s a little bare-bones, but I do highly enjoy Konstantin Timofeev’s baritone, the folksy stylings and the incorporation of Russian Orthodox imagery and tonality; makes it a good song for the Eve of the Nativity. Hopefully the band will make a full release soon; they are in that really slim subset of Eastern Orthodox heavy metal bands which includes Есхатон and Епизод. A happy Christmas Eve, everyone!
