WINDSWEPT is the latest musical brainchild of DRUDKH mastermind Roman Sayenko. This new project remains relatively close to DRUDKH in comparison to other outlets of the musician's inspiration as it stays within the classic expression of Ukrainian black metal. Yet The Great Cold Steppe is deliberately kept harsh and raw, which reflects the album's theme that was inspired by the hostile and fierce Eastern steppes during winter time. The Great Cold Steppe was written and recorded in only three days without rehearsals and based on improvisation with instruments and vocals creating the feeling and grit of a live performance.
