Biography

Draconic’s musical journey began in 2003 as a project of keyboardist Branislav Stankovic, who with the help of studio musicians from some of Serbia’s most prominent metal bands, recorded an album entitled Conflux.

The record was released in 2004 by local label Rock Express Records.

With intentions of turning the Draconic studio project into an actual working band, Stankovic enlisted musicians from Belgrade’s local metal scene, two of which were guitarist Vanja Dusan Andrijasevic and bassist David Lazar Galic.

Once the promotion of Conflux. had ended and the band began working on new material as a group, it became glaringly obvious that the new line-up had no interest in continuing to write music in the symphonic black metal style of the debut.

Draconic spent the next several years honing their craft live and in the studio, writing and demoing new music, and searching for the right musicians to complete the new line-up. The culmination of this process came in the fall of 2008, with the completion of the band’s second album From the Wrong Side of the Aperture.

The music Draconic embody today is an amalgam of metal styles bridging the gap between old school and new—a monstrously heavy and layered slab of modern progressive metal.

The band creates music that puts lessons learned from the past into a modern context, providing the listener with metal that is both impressive and futuristic, but also sincere and rooted in tradition.
