Biography

Kharkiv, Ukraine (2002 – present)

Drudkh (meaning “wood” in Sanskrit) is an band from Kharkiv, Ukraine formed in 2002.

Drudkh was founded by Roman Saenko, the leading member of Hate Forest; Thurios, the leading member of Astrofaes; and Yuriy Sinitsky, of Lucifugum and DEFINITION SANE. Their strongly -influenced music focuses on a dense atmosphere with a lot of feeling, and the lyrical contents embrace Slavic mythology, seasons and poetry. Many of the band’s lyrics are derived from the works of nineteenth and twentieth century Ukrainian poets, especially Taras Shevchenko.

“During all its history, the band followed a ‘no photos, no interviews, no website, no gigs’ policy, which was nobly accepted by Drudkh’s new label Season of Mist. The absence of any comments or information from Drudkh’s side gave an opening to a few ignorant internet warrior-fans to spread rumors, that the band embraces extreme political views. This is absolutely misleading and a total profanation, since there is nothing in Drudkh’s music or lyrics that would suggest any political outlook. Drudkh praise individualism, self-improvement and estrangement from modern values.” Roman Saenko (2008)

    Aqmn değer bilmez haterları. Hala ağız büke büke yazıyorlar A Furrow Cut Short 'ın tahtadan yapılan coverını alacaksın ve ağızlarının ortasına değil biraz sağına doğru indireceksin.

    I don't know how anyone could listen to the new album and NOT think it was in the vein of Forgotten Legends

    I think the new album was kind of mediocre. I was hoping for something in the vein of Autumn Aurora, Forgotten Legends or Blood in our Wells which are absolutely amazing.

    Epik ulan epikkk!! Hala şerefsiz gibi "worthy" "but not as..." diyen kafaları var. Ulan Durdkh bu Drudkh bu adamlar grup olmanında müzik yapmanında çoktan ötesine geçip efsane oldular zaten neyin davasındasınız aq?

    Better than the last two, but not as good as the old stuff. Worthy album overall.

    Great new record. Sounds like they tried to take a leap back to their older albums, without sounding like they tried to copypaste previous work. Which they did amazingly!

    Eskiler döndü, bütün heybetli atmosferi ile! Black Metal'den o kadar uzaklaşmışken Drudkh'un 1 saatlik son albümü su gibi geçti, gitti. Ne doydum, ne tadını damağımda doya doya hissettim ne de yeter dedim. Yapacak tek şey açıp açıp tekrar tekrar dinlemek. İnanılmaz albüm kapağı, albüm adı ve RAW sound'u ile düşmeyen tempolu yere-göğe sığmaz bir Drudkh albümü idi. Cidden ben bu albümü yorumlamam bile ve 2015 - A Furrow Cut Short 10/10 . Sırf dinlediğim için değil ben gözü kapalı bile 10/10 verirdim zaten. Drudkh albümü için değerlendirme yapıp birde puanlama düşüneceksin ha? Nice story bro!
