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)

    Their music is awesome although i dont like all the Stepan Bandera worshipping pro-west nazi-shitheads from Kiev who kill thousands of civilians in the east of Ukraine. However their music is still awesome and their political believes do not change it. And because of this i dont give a fuck if they are NSBM or not. And you all should do the same.

    "Drudkh doesn't support any extreme ideology and declares itself as a non-political band" That's my input on this bullshit

    damn, same neverending shit years and years. Turn on your brains. Poets of poets, whose lyrics Drudkh use in their songs were murdered by nazies, Ukraine lost around 4 millions people during German occupation. Drudkh, which are Ukrainian patriots are nazies, damn you are insane.

    Is referring to their national peotry in the lyrics automatically making them NSBM? Give me a break... Nevertheless, the lyrics are utterly awesome. Not to mention that Blood in Our Wells is probably the finest black metal albums in countless years.

    Great band. Forgotten Legends took a while to grow on me, but I'm glad I continued to give it a chance.

    THE MYSTERY UNSOLVED. IS DRUDKH NSBM OR NOT? Really, people. I first listened Drudkh in '05 and nothing's changed in this shoutbox for 9 years. Grow up. Listen if ye like it, gtfo if ye don't. I tagged Drudkh as NSBM <3

    There are so many bands and musicians with ridiculous, stupid or just pretty awful beliefs, and no one gives a shit. But as soon as the label of Nazi can be attached to those beliefs, it's all people talk about. I'm not suggesting that Drudkh are NSBM, I'm just saying, let it the fuck go,

    Is there even a reliable list of NSBM bands to avoid, out there? There's so much hearsay and bullshit surrounding the topic...
