Druzhina was created in the end of August 2006 with the song ‘Les nuits au bord de la liberte visqueuse’. Some rehearsals took place in Geneva, Switzerland, and soon the track was recorded in SAE Institute with our ally from a local studio performing studio bass. This song was never released as a single, and a chance to incorporate it towards a broader concept appeared in June 2007.

Having 3 members: Pavel Ruban(Russian; guitars and the sound/production aspects); Charles-Guillaume Méla (French; Piano, Synths, Guitars, French Vocals), Alexey Chernyavskiy (Russian; drums, Russian Vocals), the only efficient option for accomplishing this was recording in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The album was recorded in June 2007, and this time involved a full recording process as well as guest musicians including a female vocalist, violin player and a danish studio bassist taking care of all the bass tracks, except for “Les nuits…” Grand Piano was also used as a duo element with violin on the ending track.
After DRUZHINA has been incorporating it’s ideas, ideals and musical inspirations into what seemed reasonable common grounds, the first full-length album name was established: “Echoes of Distant Battles”. It was mixed and mastered by Pavel Ruban in Copenhagen, and after some discussions with SoundAge Productions from Moscow, Russia ( a label that has cooperated with bands like Arkona, Rossomahaar and Pagan Reign ), it was released on the 7th April 2008, under the banner of SoundAge Prod.
