Wine From Tears is a melodic death/doom metal band from Samara, Russia. WFT combines many effects in their music, so with their sad melodies you will feel something different. Wine From Tears’ style can be described as a mix of Saturnus, Draconian, My Dying Bride, Katatonia and Swallow The Sun.

The band was founded in September 2002 by A.Kudrashov and A.Nesterov.
Since then the band’s structure changed a lot:
D.Ochkov (keyboards), who joined in 2003, played in the band at it’s first concert. It took place in the night-club called “Manhattan”, it was “Death party (in memory of Chuck Schuldinner)”. Rhythm-section changed in January 2004: Oksana Poudanina (bass) and Igor Andreev (drums) were invited. Later Alexandr Jurasov joined the band as a vocalist. D.Ochkov left WFT in April 2004. Olga Chekmareva (keyboards) changed him (took over). In July 2004 the band decided to change O.Poudanina (bass) for Andrew Meunargia (bass, ex-WFT). But a bit later Andrew left the band. He was changed by Elena Firsova (bass). Two months later O.Chekmareva (keyboards) decided to leave WFT and asked D.Ochkov to come back. In spring 2008 Alex Nesterov (giutars) took a role of a singer (took over singer’s duties). In September 2008 Maria Zvjagina came in as a keyboard player.
This is today’s structure of Wine From Tears.

The band played with such bands as: Darzamat, Saturnus, Ablaze In Hatred, Frailty, Boney NEM.
