''Ancient God of Evil'' review url http: allmusic.com album ancient-god-of-evil-r923934 review publisher Allmusic accessdate 2011-09-15 black metal '''Unanimated''' are a Swedish (Sweden) extreme metal band. They were founded in 1989 in Stockholm and dissolved in 1996. Largely inspired by Dismember (Dismember (band)), they made two melodic death metal albums. In 1993, ''In the Forest of the Dreaming Dead'' was released on Pavement Music, a label which has since merged with Crash Music Inc.. In 1995 ''Ancient God of Evil'' was released on No Fashion Records, an independent Swedish label. The band also contributed to the 1996 Slayer tribute ''Slaytanic Slaughter II'' with their cover of "Dead Skin Mask". Their music exemplifies the melodic Swedish sound and though primarily death metal, a black metal influence stands out. Former members have gone on to contribute to various other projects, most notably Therion (Therion (band)), Entombed (Entombed (band)), and Dismember (Dismember (band)). In 2007, they reformed, and in April 2008, signed to Regain Records. The band has released a new album, titled "In The Light Of Darkness", in April 2009. birth_date Commons:Category:Stockholm Wikipedia:Stockholm Dmoz:Europe Sweden Stockholm County Localities Stockholm

In February 1644, at the express desire of King Christian IV of Denmark, the Copenhagen burgesses elected him burgomaster. During his northern voyages he had learned Russian (Russian language), and was employed as interpreter at court whenever Muscovite (Moscow) embassies visited Copenhagen. His travels had begotten in him a love of geography, and he published in 1633 a ''Kosmografi'', previously revised by the astronomer Longomontanus (Christian Sørensen Longomontanus). The town was built at the crossing of the Moscow road (east-west) and the Smolensk road (north-south, paralleling the river). By the plan of 1773, it was laid out in triangular form. One part paralleled the Gzhat river, another the road to Moscow, and the base of the triangle connected them. subgenres regional_scenes The biggest scene was in Moscow, where it started, but all cities in the Soviet Union had their scenes.

'' was canceled. It was an air combat game which featured modern-day dog fighting with planes in cities that had skyscraper buildings. A leaked and completed version has since made it to the Internet. IGN: Propeller Arena Release To Be Determined A version by the Art Ensemble of Chicago is featured on their album ''Ancient to the Future'', which was released in 1987.

RU-21 was developed by Prof. Eugene Mayevski at the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics (division of the Russian Academy of Sciences), where the product was also clinically tested. Further tests were conducted at the Russian Ministry of Public Health. The tests confirmed the effects of RU-21 on the body's ability to metabolize alcohol. The legend behind the product's history attributes the development of RU-21 to the KGB. An urban legend surrounding RU-21 is that KGB operatives sought a chemical compound that would allow them to drink heavily with suspected Western intelligence agents, in the Soviet Union or the West, and not get drunk. At the same time, according to the legend, the Western agent would become intoxicated and (hopefully) reveal secrets to the KGB agent, who would simply be pretending to be drunk and in fact be perfectly lucid. The legend states that while this did not work, KGB agents discovered that the tablet did have an unpredicted side effect; the apparent ability to lessen a hangover. While there is some truth to this legend (the KGB did conduct some alcohol-related tests involving key ingredients in RU-21, most notably the succinic acid), KGB has no role in commercializing this product. Like other states which were members of the Comecon, the German Democratic Republic (GDR – East Germany) had a centrally planned economy (CPE) similar to the one in the former Soviet Union, in contrast to the market economies (market economy) or mixed economies (mixed economy) of capitalist states. The state established production targets and prices, and allocated resources, codifying these decisions in a comprehensive plan or a set thereof. The means of production were almost entirely state-owned (Government-owned corporation). There were several reasons behind the backward economic situation in East Germany. Its lack of essential natural resources and the separation from its traditional West German market were probably the most important. Furthermore, while large sums had been poured into West Germany, especially by the United States, the Soviet Union not only put nothing into the economy of its zone but actually took out large amounts in reparations and occupation costs (c. 6 billion marks per year). It was estimated that by 1949, 100 per cent of the automotive, between 90% to 100% of the chemical, and 93% of the fuel industries were in Soviet hands. By the end of 1950 East Germany had paid $3.7 bn of Russia's $10 bn reparations demand. After the death of Joseph Stalin and the June 1953 uprising (Uprising of 1953 in East Germany), the Soviet Union began to return the East German factories it had taken as reparations. Perhaps the only evidence of humanitarian acts in his career was his involvement in the resettlement of German refugees from lands annexed to the Soviet Union over 1939 to 1940. Between October and December 1939 nearly 60,000 Volksdeutsche arrived in Germany from the Baltic states of Estonia and Latvia. Evidently Wilfried Strik-Strikfeldt (later employed as translator for General Andrey Vlasov) was in this group as he "resettled" in Posen (Poznań). Neighbouring Gauleiter and rival Albert Forster refused them entry point blank and they were largely settled in properties seized from Poles in Poznań and across the Wartheland. However even Greiser was wary, noting that many were elderly and urbanized aristocrats with a strong class consciousness, not the virile peasant warrior types idolized by the SS. Closer to his heart were the over 100,000 Volksdeutsche who were evacuated from Volhynia and eastern Galicia (Galicia (Central Europe)). These were mostly farmers and rural people, and, learning from the Baltic experience, Łódź in eastern Wartheland was designated the main Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle (VoMi) reception centre. In May 1940 a further 30,000 Volksdeutsche were relocated from the Nazi General Government of Poland to Greiser’s domain. After 1941 a further 300,000 Volksdeutsche were evacuated from Russia and Ukraine to Wartheland during the German invasion and occupation of the Soviet Union. The Valentine remained in production until April 1944, becoming Britain's most-produced tank during the war with 6,855 units manufactured in the UK (by Vickers, Metropolitan-Cammell Carriage and Wagon (Metro Cammell) and Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon (Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company)), and a further 1,420 in Canada. They were the Commonwealth's (Commonwealth of Nations) main export to the Soviet Union under the Lend-lease Act, with 2,394 of the British models being sent and 1,388 of the Canadian Pacific built (Canadian Pacific Railway#The Great Depression and World War II, 1098-1099) models, and the remaining 30 being kept for training. Cominform was a Soviet (Soviet Union)-dominated organization of Communist parties founded in September 1947 at a conference of Communist party leaders in Szklarska Poręba, Poland. Soviet leader Joseph Stalin called the conference in response to divergences among eastern European governments on whether or not to attend the Paris Conference (Paris Peace Treaties, 1947) on Marshall Aid in July 1947. The first self-propelled multiple rocket launchers — and arguably the most famous — were the Soviet (Soviet Union) BM-13 Katyusha (Katyusha rocket launcher)s, first used during World War II and exported to Soviet allies afterwards. They were simple systems in which a rack of launch rails was mounted on the back of a truck. This set the template for modern multiple rocket launchers. The Americans mounted tubular launchers atop M4 Sherman tanks to create the T34 Calliope rocket launching tank, only used in small numbers, as their closest equivalent to the Katyusha. Actors' unions and charities: Leadership Bikel is President of the Associated Actors and Artistes of America. He was president of Actors' Equity (Actors' Equity Association) in the late 1970s and early 1980s, in which office he supported human rights. At the 1977 AFL–CIO Convention, Bikel welcomed the Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky upon his release from the Soviet Union. U.S. President Jimmy Carter appointed him to serve on the National Council for the Arts in 1977 for a six-year term. Wikipedia:Post-Soviet states commons:Союз Советских Социалистических Республик
