Biography

LOCH VOSTOK , named after a subterranean lake in Antarctica, rose out of the collapse of Progressive Metal band Mayadome in 2001.

After 10 years Drummer Teddy Möller was tired of the cheeze and decided to start something more meaty, hence LOCH VOSTOK was born.

Three core members, Mayadome founder Teddy Möller, Keyboardist Sebastian Okupski and Bass Player Erik Grandin set about formulating a new act.

Möller would switch from his erstwhile role as a Drummer to that of Lead Vocalist/Guitarist and with the incorporation of former Ramrod, 5 Steps Ahead and El Presidente guitarist Niklas Kupper alongside ex-AZOTIC REIGN, 5 Steps Ahead, El Presidente and imperial domain drummer Alvaro Torres the band was complete.

However, Grandin was to relocate to the USA and so former Mellow Poetry guitarist Tomas “Tym” Jonsson stepped in to fill the bass vacancy.

Utilising producer Daniel Bergstrand LOCH VOSTOK cut a self financed album ‘Dark Logic’ entirely based upon infamous serial killers such as Henry Lee Lucas, Andreij Tzjikatilo and Ed Gein. The first label to pick up the album for distribution would be the Russian concern CD-Maximum.

Shortly after the Russian release, Portugese label Magnetism Records contracted LOCH VOSTOK , and released ‘Dark Logic’ worldwide August 1st 2004.

    The way the clean vocals are done are perfect for the style of music. New album is beautiful, better than the previous albums.

    Nice music indeed.But...poor clean vocals(all albums).The clean Vocals ruin this nice music :( They sing flat, without any techniques. And their songs have too clean vocals. I believe this nice aggressive music needs more harsh vocals rather than clean vocals. I hope they find a skillful Vocal.

    Maybe the vocalist isn't Mikael Akerfeldt, but his growls and clean vocals are really, really good :)
