208 Talks of Angels was created in 2006 in Russian and decided to search for new music concept and new extraordinary sound. The word “angel” has no religious implication, but is just the translation of Greek “aggelos” that means herald, messenger. This word is used within the music concept of this music band that contemplates adoption of something progressive and state-of-the-art. The presence of number “208” is still the secret, but it soon will be revealed.
