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)

    V Drudkh isn't really politically involved, so I really don't think they're getting involved with the Ukraine conflict.

    During this current Ukraine conflict, is Drudkh full Nazi / russophobe / "Slava Ukraiini" mode? I'm not entirely sure, but considering that they dedicated one album to Stepan Bandera and are reciting Taras Shevchenko's works, they probably are.

    @PastSanctuary, I suppose, I've already seen it on the site before so it's nothing new.

    The last three works resemble each other. Drudkh should split up to save their legacy. Well, at least Blood in Our Wells is a masterpiece, so is The Swan Road.

    I don't Know Why I tend to Associate DRUDKH the most with GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT.

    My love for this band keeps growing. So much atmosphere. No matter what dubious ideas they might have, I don't care. This music is art.

    Drudkh's 2006 release is dedicated to Stepan Bandera, a fascist Ukranian nationalist and this is a policial statement, which makes the band political. Охуенный блэк, жаль что дебилы.
