No Spiritual Surrender是一只来自乌克兰Black/Doom Metal单人乐团，乐团虽说风格为Black/Doom Metal，但歌曲中的流露的哥特感还是十分的强烈。乐团唯一的成员Ixnay (Alexandr Malinovskiy) 负责乐团的所有事务。2005年全长专辑《To the Land Where Eternal Autumn Rules》是乐团唯一一张正式专辑。专辑中斯拉夫民谣式的优美与忧伤以及粘稠的音色与迸发式节奏带给人深秋的怅惘。乐队成员Ixnay (Alexandr Malinovskiy) 出生于1982年，除却音乐，Ixnay (Alexandr Malinovskiy) 在雕塑，宗教以及建筑方面也有一定的研究。No Spiritual Surrender在2006年发行了一张单曲EP后便再也没有了动静，就连官网的一切信息也都静止在2006年。其中到底发生了什么谁也无法知道。
In November-2002 Ixnay had bought the first in his hopeless life electroguitar, and using computer he started to assimilate a different effects. Soon "...So Fell Autumn Rain" was record and press in "mp3". So the first composition of the future project was born...
That all might be the end, but December-2002 had come... with his pale winter sunset, midwinter frost, slow winter snowfal... So, lying in lonely room at evening, and watching in winter window Decembers' death with going for a night powerless Sun, Ixnay wrote brokenly the verse on the scrap of paper... the verse about past might-have-been love. Then he took in his hands guitar and... So the next composition "Ding He Called Her Name" was thought out, and now she has a right be named the first, but this is the first full-fledget song ("text/music" classifier). Then after the expiry some cold days it was start to record a newly-made composition with help of disposed instruments such as electroguitar, microphone and computer. There were some attempts, and song lived already from those times in "mp3", but all finished by version from 24.06.03, which is imperfective too in its sound and quality, therefore in the near future it's planing to refresh this one...
But lets turn back to History. The next, so to say, final stage was a Sea... and Wind... The point is that in begining of 2003 Ixnay could to escape to the home... to the Homeland... in Crimea... There were planning to rest from Kharkov chaos. But he fell ill there, and the rest was failed, and only in the last evening before the return he could to go for a 10 minutes to the sea... to the Sea... to the Seawind... and enjoy this evening, irreplaceabled by anything idill again. On arrival at Kharkov there was recorded a next instrumental composition "Seawind" duration one minute and a half, with an attempt to reproduce that brief but unforgettable feeling of greatness and freedom...
And so, looking back, he could see the started and a great wish to continue it. And Ixnay 09.02.2003 had make a decision to create his own project with the name "No Spiritual Surrender". Why "own"? Just at that moment nobody from kindred spirits trusted to luck of this hopeless deed, well there were nobody who could be typecast on musicians' role... From that day Ixnay begins to devote more time to playing guitar and to set own verses written within Autumn-2002/Winter-2002-2003 to incipient music. It's heading for the genre limitation of project within "doom-death metal", and bass, synth and drums necessary for the full-fledged compositions creating with help of PC. Eventually as a result of appearance of a new songs it's making a solution to release the first album. And the work with him is starting at Spring/Summer-2003. The limits of a put-up style washing out by every new incipient track and Ixnay don't know already, what will come of it.
An instrumental overture "Autumn Comes..." to future album was created, and original version of "Seawind" was taken as an outro. The core of album was inflated with songs and instrumental things just for the one purpose - to guide the listener into the atmosphere of comming Autumn, her beautiful being and changing by Winter, with her mournful melancholic snowfalls and cutting frosts... And so, in spite of all external hopelessness of planning, 22.07.2003 on the black wings of creator of No Spiritual Surrender the first star of Hope apppeared... - the first album called "In the Depth of Desperation" came out, and now it resembles a ray of light in the land of darkness by its appearance... Talking about History of NoSpiritS there is no escape from saying some words about this album. To 8 songs from the album there was added the 9th composition such as bonus-track. That was a black-metal cover-version "Ukraine" of the ukrainian folk-patriotic song, and this track opening style limits still more wide by his presence in the album. It is the Ixnay's opinion that a big style spectrum of music was represent in the album: from instrumental gothic and doom till black-metal, but it's difficult to give a monosemantic decision about this question...
At this moment this album is spreading by creators' own strength practically, and it's already have its copies in cities such as Evpatoria, Sevastopol, Kharkov, Nikolaev, Dnepropetrovsk, Vinnitsa, Kiev (all - Ukraine), Moscow and Novosibirsk (Russia), and a pair of copies flew away even to America and China...
Today it's going the second period of creative work of No Spiritual Surrender - it's going the assemblage of new creative material and in parallel a new songs have been recording. Also it's retrieving a like-minded persons for the introduction of a concert life in NoSpiritS and its full-fledged achievement... But all is only begin... It's main - don't spiritual surrender!.
