ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The band was formed in the spring of 2010 in the picturesque ancient city of Lviv, the cultural capital of Ukraine. At the time Yulian was into making unique musical instruments from the poisonous plant called ‘hogweed’ and he couldn’t help but he was psyched about incorporating these enormous 3-metre long pipes into the activities of the newly-formed band.

The fellowship made the decision not to follow the usual well-worn path of vast majority of the bands, which play a mixture of folk, rock and metal, and search for their own unique sounding and look instead. VITER was chosen as the name of the band (‘viter’ stands for ‘wind’ in the Ukrainian language), a perfect symbol for breaking all the boundaries and limits.

At the time the band’s line-up finally became stable: Yulian Mytsyk – lead vocals, folk instruments, Sviatoslav Adept – guitar, backing vocals, folk instruments, Volodymyr Derecha – guitar, Oleksandr Ignatov – keyboard, Bohdan Potopalskyi – bass, backing vocals, Serhiy Krasutsky – drums, backing vocals.

The band, in its current line-up, got down to writing new songs, the recording of which lasted till 2012. During the period VITER crystallized new sounding that incorporated their previous experience along with new musical ideas. The band recorded and sampled traditional Ukrainian instruments (even a chicken was used in one of the tracks), brought their sounding closer to synthesized electronic sounds, introduced industrial noise, electronic instruments and powerful guitar riffs into their music. The new music style was named FOLK ’N’ DUSTRIAL.

The band pays great attention to stage show and makes use of various pyrotechnic and other visual effects. Following the successful debut on the Ukraine’s most powerful rock festival, the GLOBAL EAST ROCK FESTIVAL, in 2011, the band enjoyed an even greater support of the audience. The band’s performance reached its climax point when the enormous horn in the arms of the lead singer erupted with a spectacular two-meter high fountain of sparks.

"And despite the fact the industrial sound is the strongest, but there are surely folk instruments in it. It sounds like an impossible combination but it isn’t, Viter proves it. The CD was realesed single by single over a couple of weeks and this was a great idea. I was often very curious how the next song should sound, because there is a nice variation in the tracks. They fit together, but don’t look like each other. The album is released completely now and it sounds nice. Viter has build out the concept of their previous songs. Maybe some people can’t appreciate the mix of folk en industrial, but I expect there are also a lot of people who like this a lot." – www.folk-metal.nl, 2012
