Biography

Lemberg, Ukraine (2003 – present)

Kroda is a pagan folk / Black Metal band from Lemberg, Ukraine formed by Eisenslav and Viterzgir in 2003. They describe their music as “” and their lyrics deal with themes like nature, paganism and history, as well as anti-Christianity. Although starting as a studio project, Kroda became a live band in 2007, drafting in musicians from Ruina to flesh out what was a two-man lineup.

Despite several protests by the band to the cotnrary, they are often considered part of the scene by the fans of the genre. The band members themselves have stated that “Kroda’s lyrics DO NOT contain any political appeals or proclamations!”

On the 14th of February, 2005, they published their first release, “Cry To Me, River…”, on Stellar Winter Records (Russia) and Rarog Production (Ukraine). This was then followed by a split-album with the Russian band Oprich, “Legend (And Poppyflowers are Blossoming)”, on the 26th of April of the same year, and 3 months later on the 20th of July by their second full-length “Towards The Firmaments Verge of Life…”.

Due to the creative disagreements author of Kroda’s music and visual conception Viterzgir leftthe band in 2010. Eisenslav continues as the band’s sole member.

    "Cold Aurora" makes me stop everything I do or think, and just continue with the beauty of the song itself.

    I have not spend nearly enough time listening to Kroda. The music is possessed of such a wonderful and triumphant atmosphere that is at once resilient and melancholy. Amazing.

    Слава Україні! Героям слава! Найкращий у своєму жанрі український гурт. Дуже атмосферно, у музиці присутня карпатська краса, я особисто їх дуже за це поважаю. Превосходные ребята, лучшее, что есть из украинского в таком жанре да и вообще единственные, кто показывают карпатскую красоту в таком стиле. Очень их уважаю за это. The best folk band in Ukraine and the only band in the World who shows carpathian beauty in music THIS WAY. I really respect them for that. Masterpiece and gem as a best quality ukrainian folk-black metal.
