The Vivisectors started as an instro, one-man band and became famous with the Gulag Tunes project, combining sunny surf music and ethnic Russian prison songs.

Paranoia, despair, sudden joyous snapshots, are conveyed by the repetitive and catchy melodies and hooks that the Vivisections generate and are destined to stick in ones memory. Today, they keep researching the dark side of rock'n'roll and the haunting guitars are sure to captivate.

Track Name: The Vivisectors feat Инженер Феррис- Rat King
Rat King [feat. Engineer Ferris]

Translated by Max Nemtsov

in those damp crawlspaces where the rats only dare
there’s mold in the walls and fear in the air
your feet slip in muck as you carry your pack
and some rusty door doesn’t let you go back

there are rusty pipes and there are rusty chains
and the slime is like someone’s cold lips in the mains
the fear crawls to you and you know you should run
but there is some echo behind you my son

you want to escape but you can’t turn around
the fear of this darkness is still and profound
the fear of these tunnels will never let go
it drives you like echo of someone’s tiptoe
