This is not martial industrial, this is martial music. Oda Relicta is the product of one Olegh Kolyada who recorded 'The Crown & The Plough' with the aid of the Zhytomyr Military Orchestra.
'The Crown & The Plough' is a well-thought-over record overviewing the history of Olegh's motherland, The Ukraine. The album scores the clash between workmen and nobles; where the crown meets the plough!
Grandiosely conducted Slavonic faithful hymns, orchestral sacred marches and utopian neo-folk nicely meld into a mysterious and refined album.
