Yeah, btw, we have a Twitter account. Most of the blah-blahs are in Russian but the important bits of news are always dubbed in English.

I've translated the lyrics for the promo song to English if someone is interested. Just hoping I have chosen the right words so the text doesn't sound silly for native English speaking people.

Zitat
Last Retreat

Your sight is smoldering mutely on dead wastes, and
Through the veil of gray hair you see no familiar shapes.
The silent waiting of her demented eyes is all that’s left,
It doesn’t age and by the ashes of past years is kept

The sand has captured time in crystal orb, and
Doom has measured off your life with a short rope.
Your burden in two pairs of narrow walls will freeze,
When an ax will touch your neck with its sharp teeth.

So, the first review has emerged! This one is form a Canadian website Puregrainaudio. Here is a bit:

Zitat
Low and rumbling with snarled vocals and depressive undertones, the music is not for the faint of heart. However like all good doom, despite the gloom there is still plenty of beauty to be found in the album.

They got a bit confused about our style though. The full text can be found here.

Another review has arrived. This time from "Two Guys Metal Reviews", and it's more detailed than the previous one. Here is a bit:
Zitat
Narrow House is one of those bands that blows your mind, a band that has a powerful and twisted sound. A sound that is beautifully crafted, with quasi-perfect production, amazing lyrics  and stellar musicianship. These arrangements are incredible and can not be put in to so little space as I have today.
I am not sure we deserve all that praise but this guy is totally right when talking that funeral doom will not make us popular :D. The full text can be found here.

Ok, here's a fragment from a fresh review from the website called "From The Dust Returned":
Zitat
Though Ukrainians Narrow House hail from a tradition of soul leeching, somber funeral doom, the sound they've adopted for their debut A Key to Panngrieb is actually far brighter, more atmospheric, and their wise incorporation of instruments like a cello and synthesizers helps give this music a far larger breadth than if they had merely trudged along with the same lifeless, disaffected lurch as so many others in this niche.
Full text can be found here. The most detailed review by now.

A few words from German people at Metal.de about "A Key to Panngrieb":
Zitat
This band manages to capture the bleakness and drabness of an autumnal mist skillfully in their latest work, "A Key To Panngrieb". [...] The perfect soundtrack for the upcoming cold season.
Although the review is written purely in Deutsch, Google Translate shows pretty good results in translating it to English (much better comparing to Russian version). Click here to check out the full googletranslated version.

Ha-ha, I actually realized that most of the native English-speaking crowd doesn't dig the name of our band. But no fear, Metal Storm had cleared this out for wide audience in their last review of our album.

Zitat
A Key To Pangriebb is really well crafted, from song arrangements to sound. Narrow House almost effortlessly succeed in conveying the wide ranges of doom, from fragile beauty to crushing loss to abject horror.

Mortem Zine (Czech Republic) has something to say about "A Key to Panngrieb" too:
Zitat
I’m not entirely sure whether I’ll often return to the gloomy Panngrieb or not, but I’m sure this magical journey is worth a try. However, I’m pretty sure that NARROW HOUSE’s next visits to the murky underground are very promising and something to look forward to.
The full version of review is in their native language and Google Translate handles it pretty badly, so I guess I will translate it to Russian first.
