    • Note: When it comes to songwriting credits, as with all Drudkh albums, it is difficult to tell who wrote what. However, according to the back cover of the CD booklet found here,[5] mainman Roman Saenko "relies on self-penned lyrics [again], with each song representing a season." Thus, it is safe to say that he is at least responsible for the bulk of the writing.


  • Thurios – vocals, keyboards
  • Roman Saenko – guitars, bass
  • Krechet – bass, keyboards
  • Vlad – drums, keyboards
