What an amazing experience Russia was. We couldn't put it into words so here's the aftermovie that does it for us.
Thanks so much to all the amazing new friends we made in Russia during this experience that made our trip such an unbelievable success. The producers, promoters, musicians and all the amazing staff and crew from Belomor-Boogie and Keleso.
Tatyana and Michael from the US Consulate in Saint Petersburg, it was a pleasure to spend both our first and last day in Russia with you. And thanks for taking us on that beautiful tour of the Winter Palace and being the perfect tour guide! Aleksandr, you were the best host Immortal Guardian could have asked for! You provided us with amazing music, amazing food, an amazing festival, and amazing VODKA! I hope this is only the very beginning of Immortal Guardian's future in Russia and our relationship with you. Marina, you were our angel of Arkhangelsk! Thank you so much for taking the time to show us your beautiful city and helping us get our official Russian hats! We hope to see you again very soon! Vladimir, thank you so much for just being an overall badass. It was great meeting someone so kind and I still can't believe you gave Carlos your official police hat, haha! Elizaveta, you were such a sweetheart to go out of your way so many times that week to help us out. Not just as translator but as our go to person that we could rely on. I really hope you know how much that meant to us and that we were totally serious about repaying the favor whenever you make it over here to Austin ;) Vladimir, It was a pleasure talking music with you! Hope we can be back in Russia to talk more very soon :)
