"A band unafraid to change and adapt, Second To Sun have pulled off a career high here."
- Ghost Cult
"Where the fuck has Second to Sun been my whole life? The Walk (both the vocal and instrumental versions) is an original creation that surpasses every one of its predecessors. Second to Sun have outdone themselves."
- Angry Metal Guy (4/5)
"On the one hand, it has many rhythmic elements of groove metal; on the other, it continues the legacy of such classic Scandinavian black metal bands as EMPEROR, MAYHEM, and DARKTHRONE. Such diverse musical roots of the band protrude from Vladimir Lehtinen's songwriting, Gleb Sysoev's soul-crushing vocals and Fedor Borovsky's groovy drum lines."
- Metal-Temple (9/10)
"Powerful and huge as the Tsar's bomb, it wraps you in a dark and dense fog that you will never want to leave."
- RTMB (9/10)
"Second to Sun wrap their groove metal foundation in a tattered funeral shroud of black metal trappings for a result that transcends both in a brilliant marriage of genres."
- Antihero Magazine
"The Walk further diversifies the band's sound with even darker and colder edges that fit perfectly into the current season, while keeping the pieces that gave them a more unique feel to begin with. Quality stuff for those who like a little bit of fresh flavor injected into the black metal format."
- Dead Rhetoric (8/10)
"It will certainly turn the heads of the record executives at Spinefarm, Candlelight and Season of Mist. Expect a record deal in the near future."
"It frightens, fascinates and tantalizes."
- Antichrist Magazine
"Second To Sun is proof that you can play interesting music in the east. It's worth checking out Second to Sun. They really make good music."
- Death Magnetic
"Their new nine-song release wastes no time attacking your sense of hearing."
- JP's Music Blog
Second To Sun is a metal band from Saint Petersburg, Russia, founded in 2012 by its guitarist Vladimir Lehtinen. Second To Sun concentrate on the musical and creative aspect more and use visual elements on every song (artwork, lyrics, behind the song infos etc.) to give more depth and back story to the music. The band's music contains a blend of metal genres: on the one hand, it has the many rhythmic elements of groove metal; on the other -hand, it continues the legacy of such classic Scandinavian black metal bands as Emperor, Mayhem, and Dakthrone. Such diverse musical roots of the band protrude from Vladimir Lehtinen's songwriting, Gleb Sysoev's soul-crushing vocals and Fedor Borovsky's groovy drum lines. The band releases two versions of each album - the vocal and the instrumental one. Each individual instrumental composition is accompanied by unique artwork and a hefty description of the story the composition tells, which provides a deeper insight into the music, as well as the band's inspiration and creative process. Second To Sun has released released two albums - The First Chapter and The Black, and is now getting ready to release third album The Walk.
