Black metal and punk rock, Satanism and alcohol, nuclear war and sex, militant heroism of forefathers and everyday violence, rock'n'roll and grindcore. There is only one band on our long-suffering mother planet Earth, which unites all this stuff in its music, and this band is Impaled Nazarene.
The second foreign headliner of the Metal East Nove Kolo warm-up party in Kyiv — legendary Asphyx from the Netherlands! The band known as European fathers of true death/doom metal — the style where death component reigns over doom one — led by one of the most distinctive extreme metal vocalists ever, Martin van Drunen, will give the lesson in harshness and hopelessness to audience of the show.
The free wind of steppes brings forth the smoke of conflagrations, the echoing rhythm of Cossacks armies marching into battle and the sounds of their music. Burshtyn is the new name on Kharkiv scene, formed by its long-running representatives. The band already released two records, and their brand of combative black metal already gained the support of many metal underground people.
Sectorial band was formed in ancient year of 2000 by schoolmates in Boyarka town of Kyiv region. Though the new chapter in history of the band began in 2007 with continuous records and gigs, the guys made a true breakthrough in 2015 with their second full-length album "We Are the Titan's Rising Ashes". High quality modern death/grind accompanied by Ukrainian folk instruments with clever, thought-provoking lyrics immediately tamed many fans and even gained two awards at The Best Ukrainian Metal Act event — for the best album and video of the year. And in 2018 Sectorial released the same powerful third full-length album — "VYR".
Mutanter are veterans of Ukrainian death metal from Kharkiv, who finally released their full-length studio album entitled "The Limit" in 2018 through German label Kernkraftritter Records. Their powerful performance simply blew away audience during the album release show, which happened in summer at Ragnard Reborn: Nove Kolo fest in Kharkiv."
