Mumiy Troll was airlifted to several remote locations to film its "impressively bad-ass" (Baeble Music) new video for their song "Fantastica."

Lead singer Ilya Lagutenko explains, "we shot it all ourselves while touring Kamchatka, Kyrgyzstan and Chukotka. We even played a gig inside the Gorely crater, which is an active volcano. That grey steam you can see in the video is acid poison. When the wind changed, we had to pack up and fly out immediately."
"Fantastica" is the opening track on Mumiy Troll's latest album 'Vladivostok,' (The Village, 4.24.), the band's first full-length English LP. "Mumiy Troll is poised to take over America, Red Dawn-style," raved the Onion A.V. Club (http://avc.lu/AmRXhC).
