One of the many interesting concepts of German is that of the "Freikugel" - magic bullets "blessed" by the Devil or the Wild Huntsman who never miss. Frequently their creation required a blasphemous act, such as desecrating sacramental bread.

Sweet memories from past year 😀 "Marenonki Around" is a Ukrainian folk song. I recorded a folktronic version of it together with music producers from the Netherlands in 2018. There is a lot of harsh and soulful Ukrainian voice in this version.
