Biography

Kiev-based FireLake band was formed in 1997 by Oleg Yavorsky (guitar), Alexey Akulshyn (guitar) and Andrey Salnikov (drums). Under the influence of the extremely popular at the time “Swedish wave”, the first musical compositions of FireLake were created with a slant to classic melodic death metal. The debut performance of the band took place in spring of 1998 in the Kiev metal bar “Grave”, followed by more gigs in the city. Shortly afterward bass guitarist/vocalist Roman aka Thorn joined the band.

In search of its own style and sound, the band tries combining Slavic folk melody elements with aggressive death metal riffs. In 1999 FireLake takes part in several Ukrainian events, including “At Voland’s” and The Great Commandment, performing with such bands as Disclaimer, Te Deum, Unerase, Reflection, Camera Obscura, Egoism and more, only to firmly settle itself on the metal scene.

The Media started talking about FireLake - “Ukraine Young” newspaper publishes an interview, and band members answer listener’s questions live on air of the Radio Rocks Ukraine. In 2000 for personal reasons Alexey Akulshyn left the band, soon replaced by Ruslan Drozd (guitar). The band polished the material accumulated and prepared for the first album recording - The Temptation Journey.

In 2005 the album of 10 tracks (best out of collected in the period of 2001-2005) was mixed and ready for release. Due to various reasons the actual release of the album happens as late as early 2007.
