Three years after the release of Black Angels Songs, Miroslav Tóth together with Dystopic Requiem Quartet comes up with a rare album inspired by non-places, i.e. buildings and objects that were either unfinished, abandoned, over-multiplied, or were marked by mining and yet had no meaning in the end. Also featured on Nemiesta (Non-places) is Nénia, a track dedicated to the victims in Ukraine, written three days after the outbreak of war during the album’s creation. The recordings were made in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Austria.
