Unlike traditional past Drudkh releases, this album is purely acoustic folk. Based upon Ukrainian legends, traditional songs and fairy-tales.

Several songs contain elements of previous Drudkh material:
- "Сльози богів (Tears of Gods)" contains elements of "Forests in Fire and Gold" from "Forgotten Legends"
- "Стародавній танець (Archaic Dance)" contains elements of "Заграва 1768-го (Glare of 1768)" from "Лебединий шлях (The Swan Road)"
- "Чумацький шлях (The Milky Way)" is a rearranged version of "Кров (Blood)" from "Лебединий шлях (The Swan Road)"
- "Чому буває сумне сонце (Why the Sun Becomes Sad)" contains elements of "Sunwheel" from "Autumn Aurora"
- "Журавлі ніколи не повернуться сюди (The Cranes Will Never Return Here)" contains a riff of "Самітність (Solitude)" from "Кров у наших криницях (Blood in Our Wells)"

Illustrations by Олександр Міхнушов (Міхнушев) from the book "З живого джерела", 1990.
