Edward Artemiev - Warmth Of Earth
A Soviet-era record by a great composer of Russian film music, namely the scores for Solaris and Stalker, both of which are phenomenal. This is not like his pure synth drool at all, it's a symphonic prog record with heavy Russian-style melodic leanings combined with hard fantasy shred and 70s sexual rock instrumentation. I spent about $50 acquiring this record on GEMM, a first edition Melodia vinyl, a label notorious for their thin (cheap) wares and the fact that they were the only label permitted to operate under the Soviet regime. State-approved wonk by a high ranking composer.
