Norilsk is a mining town located in Syberia, Russia. It is one of the most northern located urbanized areas of the world. Residents must put up with extraordinarily harsh living standards. Most make a living from working in the nickel mines. They have to face hard working conditions and a hazardously polluted environment.

Postcard from Norislk is the tale of a young guy moving there leaving family and friends behind to make ends meet and also in search of a different lifestyle.

Track Name: We Are Trapped
Farewell Mom. I came to say goodbye. I am leaving. I have to. I want you to know why. Mom, WE ARE TRAPPED!
Look at me Mom. Where am I now? Have I left you for money, love or freedom? Pointless. I am freezing Mom, I am freezing in hell.
Track Name: Nickel Rush
The nights are cold. I can feel it deep within my bones. The city is a desert of toxic snow. Black smoke is rising towards the grey skies. No sane creature lives here. Only men.
The mines are deep below the ground. The humming of the engines never stops. It's so hot it almost burns. Inside dark elevators we are slowly going down.
Track Name: Thawing and Flood
Winter is finally over. It is getting warmer every day. Ice is slowly melted away by the first rays of the spring sun. Hope is slowly moving back to our hearts.
You can hardly see snow any more if you look around. It is all wet and muddy. Raining all the time. It is so hot.
The mine has been flooded. Everyone is leaving. Only those remain who are working on the river bank day and night. The rising of the water doesn't seem to stop. I don't know for how long we can last.
And the levee breaks.
