Line-up
Vitaly Kiselev - guitars, bass, programming
Alexander Malakhov - synthesizers

Description/Reviews
«The Ocean Of Unspoken Words» is Kiselev’s fourth studio album. It is completely instrumental and recorded in his own modest home studio. As always he used some of his old ideas, which were in an embryonic state and which incredibly transformed here into complex musical forms. This album is also written under impression of classical music such as works of Peter Tchaikovsky or Edward Grieg. However, inclusions of orchestration, the sounds of classical piano and organs, wrapped in a warm 70’s retro sound, are combined with heavy guitar riffs, seasoned with a variety of modern synth sounds.
