about

FS PROJEKT is the result of the creative effort and cooperation of its mastermind Efes with Oleg Mishin, a renowned Russian musician (Catharsis, O.M., End Zone, Specter, Mango-Mango, Razgruzhat Vagony).

While Efes comes out in it as the author of music, lyrics and arrangements as well as a guitarist and a bassist, Oleg Mishin’s province is that of a producer and a vocalist.

Moreover, Andrei Itschenko, an acclaimed Russian drummer (Paul Di Anno, Blaze Bayley, Catharsis, Hatecraft, Hieronymus Bosch, etc.) invited to do the drums, did his part with a touch of excellence.

Designed by Alexander Dronov, a legendary Russian keyboard player (Valkiriya, Zemlyane, Mango-Mango, End Zone, Specter), the keyboard sound has a full compass – from violins and French horns to thereminvox and ambient sounds.

As the songs are all fantasy-inspired, FS PROJEKT’s music can be attributed to epic fantasy-metal.

Therefore this kind of music is, first and foremost, intended for the fans of the fantasy genre in all its various forms, as well as for those who enjoy the beauty of rich heavy metal.

The project’s name is twofold: “FS” and “PROJEKT”. The first two letters “FS” stand for the author’s initials, while the word “PROJEKT” indicates that it is not a permanent line-up band but cooperation between Efes and various musicians.

A fervent fantasy reader and a devout metalhead, Efes came up with the idea of the project in 2006 and decided to bring his two passions together and incarnate them in music. This in mind, consistent and continuous songwriting began shortly. While working on the project, Efes was also taking guitar lessons from such brilliant tutors as Oleg Mishin and Tom Hess (ex-Rhapsody of Fire, Tom Hess Music Corporation, ex-HolyHell).

By the end of 2011 Efes had finished his first creations and invited Oleg Mishin as the project’s producer and vocalist.

On 1 September 2013, FS PROJEKT’s début EP “Rozhdeniye Maga” (The Birth of a Magus) was released.

That day I woke up at sundown…
And I was falling down into a new strange world
With two deadly swords hidden deep down in my soul -
If I bring them to this World, it will die in flames!

Death!
Is my prison…
Blood!
Is on my hands…
And my eyes
Are burning with the fire of revenge…
But thus a Magus is born - in blood, anger and pain!

I enslave the undead by my iron-hard black will
With the fury of the Dark enveloping me, all the Light is lost in the void…
How can I bring back the past with all that was so dear to me?
The path to salvation is pitch-black and winding through utter darkness…

Death!
Is my prison…
Blood!
Is on my hands…
And my eyes
Are burning with the fire of revenge…
But thus a Magus is born - in blood, anger and pain!

Cursed by Light and banished by Darkness, having abandoned both Chaos and Order,
I’m heading for that place where I shall embrace sweet tranquillity…
If you stand in my way, I shall betroth you to Death,
And you shall serve me faithfully in the legions of the undead

Death!
Is my prison…
Blood!
Is on my hands…
And my eyes
Are burning with the fire of revenge…
But thus a Magus is born - in blood, anger and pain!

Blood is everywhere,
The earth is all in flames…
As if in a nightmare
A sword is in my chest.

Torment me not… Torture me not…
Please, take me to your Hall of Solace…

Do not beg of me and forgive me –
Forever shall you be a prisoner in this damp earth…

I am standing on the edge of a precipice, and I can see you
Lying in a grave at the foot of α hill…


But I’ll break through the ice
And cover the skies with flames!
I shall soar up to the roof of Heavens
And rule the raging winds!
But I’ll break through the ice
And tear apart the fetters of Death!
I’ll cast off the burdens of this sinful Earth,
I’ll leave the shackles of flesh behind
Forevermore!

Will you?
Yes!!!

Darkness has wrapped my body
In the armour of ice…
Frost has sewn my eyelashes,
But I am still alive…

And don’t you dare tell me that the end has come!
It is a lie, just a lie, no more than a lie!
I’m clenching my fists with anger and stringing my whole self up,
Sending slight tremors through the ground…

Torment me not…. Torture me not…
Please, take me to your Hall of Solace…

Do not beg of me and forgive me –
Forever shall you be a prisoner in this damp earth…

I am standing on the edge of a precipice, and I can see you
Lying in a grave at the foot of α hill…

But I’ll break through the ice
And cover the skies with flames!
I shall soar up to the roof of Heavens
And rule the raging winds!
But I’ll break through the ice
And tear apart the fetters of Death!
I’ll cast off the burdens of this sinful Earth,
I’ll leave the shackles of flesh behind
Forevermore!

I am soaring over the precipice, while Aurora is burning out…
And down there in the grave lies anything but me!

I’ve broken through that ice
And bathed the skies in flames!
I’ve soared to the roof of Heavens
To rule the raging winds!
I’ve broken through that ice!
I’ve torn apart the fetters of Death!
I’ve cast off the burdens of this sinful Earth!
I’ve left the shackles of my flesh behind
Forevermore!

Hey, Fingolfin! Look around – you’re alone…
You’ve lost everything, o, High Lord of Noldor!
Rivers of flame have devoured your lands…
Now they’ll be ruled by Evil’s black hands…

Wrath is boiling up inside you…
And you feel the urge to burn the Enemy in the flames of that wrath!

With the anger of the Valar seething in your eyes,
With the silver radiant blade blazing in your hand,
You are fast to reach Angband, faster than an arrow,
Just to rip the Night apart with your vengeful gaze!
So here you are, before the brazen gates!
Your voice is pure, your horn rings clear!
“Come out, you Fiend! Come out, my Foe!
Leave your worm-hole, craven!”

O, glorious Noldor!
O, magnificent Nolder!
You are our hope incarnate!
Keep fighting for life,
Freedom and truth!
For all things devoured by the darkness of the grave!

So slowly…in fear…
So slowly…in fear…
So slowly…in fear…
The Dark Lord appears!

“You’ve come to my stronghold!
You’ve shattered my calm!
You, feeble, pathetic Noldor!
So be it! This battle shall be your last!”
So the hammer and the sword began their dance…
Swiftly wielding your true blade,
Blazing just like Elemmirë,
Seven times you let it drink
The thick black blood of the Dark Lord!

O, glorious Noldor!
O, magnificent Nolder!
You are our hope incarnate!
Your gaze is so terrible,
It is so radiant
That it shines through the storm like the Silmarils!

Thrice you fell and thrice you rose…
Dauntless fighter, noble Noldor, laughing in the face of death,
You fought with wild abandon, yet
The fourth time you never rose
Hit too badly to fight again …
Knowing that the end was near with his foot upon your chest,
You held on and saved your breath
Just to thrust your sword straightforward one last time,
And your Enemy’s shrill scream went through the world!

O, glorious Noldor!
O, magnificent Nolder!
It was the Fiend who closed your eyes with a shroud of death...
But you had not given up,
You had not given in!
You had covered yourself in glory forevermore!
