This band from Nizhny Novgorod (or from somewhere near it) is in "Connected Artists" list of our blackened crust group, but I can't stretch to call them black metal or blackened crust. They played neocrust / dark hardcore with female vocals, and they did it good... so, why not to post their first and only album here?
Xenia's vocals are easily decipherable, and as you may have already figured out from the band's name, the lyrics are mostly about nuclear war and related subjects. To quote the lyrics of 2nd track: "As long all we still believe in gods of light and benevolent leaders, we'll be just weapons in their hands, weapons against ourselves". Unfortunately, now the band is defunct, but some former members of Hiroshima 45 are now playing in another crust band, Step To Freedom. There's not many crust bands in the whole Middle Volga region, but hopefully it'll change...
