Rasputin: Immortally Dead Matt Kovac

What you’re listening to is a choir singing “Mnogaya leta”, a Russian hymn dating back to the 17th century. The phrase “Mnogaya leta” translates to “may God give you many more years,” something we all pray for as an alternative to the inevitability of death. LISTEN
