Psalm 6

by Roz Vitalis



"Keyboardist and leader Ivan Rozmainsky creates some wonderful melodies in the music of Roz Vitalis. They are not too avant to scare some people away but at the same time not sugary sweet and safe. "

"This is a very melodic album, full of keyboards parts . An E.P. which sounds to me very introspective in musical content. It maybe sounds to me with some influences from BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO with the use of the trumpet and some arrangements, and also from some New Age music and Classical music influences (with the use of some Church Organ keyboard sounds parts), plus a bit of influences from Jazz-Rock music too. As a whole, it gives to the listener some very good "introspective"and relaxing moments, and the music also shows hope and strength despite having stress in life.

I also think that this E.P. - album sounds very well to me in recording and mixing. But maybe it also sounds a bit more like a "preview" from their next album. It also does not have many instrumentation, and it sounds very well to me anyway."

“Psalm 6” is the concept EP-album about spiritual quest and emotional upheaval of human being in a situation of strong stress. The title track and “Passing Over” are designed to be in the forthcoming studio full-length album with some adjustments. “The Prophet” is the soundtrack to the very famous opus by poet A. S. Pushkin.
This album is “a wholesale artistic statement” rather than “a bunch of songs”. 33 minutes of sinking into the spiritual world of human being seeking truth in the times of trouble.

Track Name: Psalm 6
Psalm 6 - King James Version (KJV)

1 O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

2 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O Lord, how long?

4 Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.

5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.

9 The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.

10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
Track Name: The Prophet
Alexander Pushkin — The Prophet

With fainting soul athirst for Grace,
I wandered in a desert place,
And at the crossing of the ways
I saw a sixfold Seraph blaze;

He touched mine eyes with fingers light
As sleep that cometh in the night:
And like a frightened eagle's eyes,
They opened wide with prophecies.

He touched mine ears, and they were drowned
With tumult and a roaring sound:
I heard convulsion in the sky,
And flight of angel hosts on high,
And beasts that move beneath the sea,
And the sap creeping in the tree.

And bending to my mouth he wrung
From out of it my sinful tongue,
And all its lies and idle rust,
And 'twixt my lips a-perishing
A subtle serpent's forkèd sting
With right hand wet with blood he thrust.

And with his sword my breast he cleft,
My quaking heart thereout he reft,
And in the yawning of my breast
A coal of living fire he pressed.

Then in the desert I lay dead,
And God called unto me and said:
"Arise, and let My voice be heard,
Charged with My will go forth and span
The land and sea, and let My word
Lay waste with fire the heart of man".
