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)

    Damn it, I missed the space bar in my previous post. "Not a political" instead of "not apolitical". *slowpoke.jpg*

    stillrise@: Drudkh's Myspace page is managed by Season Of Mist label workers, not by band members, so that pic says nothing. Really, Drudkh is not a nsbm band (and not apolitical band at all), but it's a well known fact that band members are (at least!) nationalists, probadly with racist bias. And there's nothing bad in it. Now disappear.

    'Do you know how big was Assyria? And how big was Mongolia? ' does cruelty increase proportionally with the surface area of a state?
