Kalinov Most


The musical style of the band, journalists often defined as folk-rock. Of course, this is very conditional. And the musicians themselves have repeatedly rejected this label. "Kalinov Most", as any truly creative and original artist, does not fit into any known style, and if they give their songs definition, only "kalinovomostovskie." Or simply "tracks." Himself Revyakin close Cossack culture, Cossack spirit. In recent years, he has repeatedly called work group "modern Cossack songs".

But it all started with this Siberian rock. If anyone could rightly be called, it is the "Kalinov Most" 1986-1989 sample period. So, what to write about: epic, "a" sound, uterine power, Revyakino "bearish" growl ("Revjakin" - sib. Dialect. "Bear"). In memory of this period were live recordings - albums "should have", "Outlaws". With this program, the group made a splash at the famous rock festival Podolsky ("Soviet Woodstock") in 1987.

"Kalinov Most" - one of the few groups that can rightfully be named "Legends of Russian rock." And even among the few groups - it is very special. Especially mysterious, legendary and even mythological. First, the mythological name of the group itself - "Kalinov Most". Equally serious, the symbolic name is not, perhaps, no one else from the well-known domestic rock bands. In Russian folk tales Kalinov Most (incandescent, fire bridge) - the place of the hero of the battle with the evil spirit. It is a symbol of the struggle between good and evil, with the decisive moment of the struggle. And it is important that he, Dmitry Revyakin, who, as befits a true poet, is very attentive to the Word, aware of the responsibility accepted group name. At various points in the history of this group of multi-valued symbol refracted its different facets. And was called "the Indian goddess of death (dissolution) Kali" and "lower solar cycle," and "the struggle with oneself", and in general any time of initiation, the transition from one state to another. Who offers Revjakin understand "Kalinov Most" as "a bridge from atheism to God".

Although the band loudly declared itself already in 1986-87. The first studio album "Vyvoroten" (outside back) came out in 1990. And there was not a single (!) Of the songs that already bring glory to the group. This is the second mystery. The songs were not just different, but completely different poetics, it is unclear how the author came to the (D. Revyakin) mysterious images, artful words. And specific melos, which in addition to the "blues" and "rock" elements swimming ethnic motives, shamanic chants. The next two albums, which were recorded at the same time in 1991 - "Uzaren" and "Darza" poetics more complicated, began to be felt more clearly word creation in the spirit of Velimir Khlebnikov. At the same time the album's sound is very different. Soft, semi-acoustic "Uzaren" (enlightenment) and rigid, electric "Darza" (call boldness). It turned out to be a long and difficult work on the album "Ulchis Belt" (Y - movement, A - Love B - honor - the path to harmony of people). Recorded participated a record number of guest musicians - and what! Sergei Voronov, Inna wish, Vadim Golutvin Alexander Chinenkov Sergey Mazaev - present constellation names. "Belt Ulchis" still remains one of the most beautiful and interesting entries in the national rock music. But relationships are complicated by the group itself. In the summer of 1994, a group "DDT", concerned about the state of half-life, which for nearly two years remained "KM", will organize a joint action in support of the "Bridge" - great concerts in St. Petersburg and Moscow. May 95th "The Bridge" appears in Moscow and speaks in a live TV "fresh wind" (the program "Alive with Max"). The recording of this performance was released on the SNC called "Traven" (May). Perhaps some relief and "pripopsovannost" sound previously uncharacteristic for this team, made "Traven" the highest grossing album at some point, "Kalinov Most". Nevertheless, the group was in a situation quite hard choice, "or commercialized, or perish." The four musicians from Novosibirsk chose the second path. "Kalinov Most" was divorced.

However, the path of legends and the development of the myth did not end there. The group met again in 1997. And in 1998 recorded the album "Weapons" (Oratov - plow plow Zycie - live). Return "Kalinov Bridge" to a new level. The song "Mother" from that album is still the hallmark of the group and appears frequently on the radio. In 2000, the band recorded a maxi-single "Jerusalem". More clearly manifested always inherent in the songs the group spiritual direction. In 2001, the album "Ore", which were recorded previously unreleased and newly reworked old songs (1984 - 1988). Very interesting album, where you can trace the emergence of a unique "kalinovomostovskogo" style, starting with the first song written by D. Revyakin, and ending with striking and piercing 10-minute epic "Cossack" (dedicated to A. Bashlachev).
< br> The assets of the group several video clips (including works of art - "preserved" and "Native"), speaking on the radio, on television, participation in major national rock festivals ("Wings," "Invasion"). Most organic and so successful for the Siberians was a festival "In the mountains, on a fast river" (Gorny Altai, p. Katun), which resulted in a live album was released - "Katun" (1999).

The current phase in the development of the group, Dmitry Revyakin calls the "messianic". The album "SWA" (2006) (Swa - ancient ogneobrazuyuschy root, which in Sanskrit means - "ego", the "essence") - a series of lyrical songs "about the relationship between the sexes in the eschatological times," - says Dmitry album It carries a hidden message - increasing the birth rate, improve the demographic situation in Russia. The album was recorded five years (that is how much has passed since the last "ore"). And for good reason. Sound poetry, music - all at the highest level. Songs that bring noble feelings.

Messianic motives unfold and amplified in the album "Ice March" (2007). Revjakin does not hide that it is a direct indication of the same name historical event Civil War (1919-1920), and refers to it Great Siberian Ice March - the remnants of Kolchak's army retreat in Transbaikalia. However, the "Ice March" from "Kalinov bridge" gets a special meaning and a new optimistic glow. The leader of the group see the revival of Russia's East Siberia, where it is still maturing inexhaustible human and natural potential and where be born the "new pioneers" (the title of one of the songs).

Released in 2009 album "Heart", dedicated to the memory of the wife of Dmitry Revyakin and represents an exemplary cycle of songs about pure love and boundless loyalty. A perfect example of the relationship to the beloved and sublime light image of herself - keepers, inspirer, which represents a transfigured song for "poet, a hero and a warrior." The album, which for obvious reasons could well be severe, tragic, appeared without losing the fullness of sorrow and suffering, very bright, life-affirming in every sense. First of all, in the sense of eternal life.

Important for "Kalinov Most" milestone was the release of a stern and fierce, trilleropodobnogo album "Eskhata" (2010) ("eschato" - the root of the word "eschatology" - the doctrine of the end times), two songs from that first time in the history of the band for many weeks headed lyrics -parad "Chart Dozen" on "Nashe Radio". "Kalinov Most" offers is a look at the last days not in terms of funky disasters layman, but from the point of view of the soldiers, knights of faith who understand what is happening around, do not accept surrounding the collapse, ready to face up to a cleansing storm, and even cry out the words of the Apocalypse and one of the songs: "Come, Day of Anger!".

Recently, the group is in a great musical and creative way. Recorded and awaits the publication of a tribute album dedicated to Alexander Bashlachev. New album "Golden oatmeal" (2012). Continuously recorded new songs, preparing concert dvd. Group clearly marked its quarter-century-long (1986-2011) anniversary celebratory concert with participation of stars of Russian rock.

One feels that Dmitri as a poet and prophet felt Ariadne, smelled fresh breeze and ready to catch it in its sails. We are waiting for the transformation, a new stage and a new light ahead. Myth lives, legend continues, and every student takes part in it.
