MOTANKA – Release Mystic High Quality Video For “Verba”! Debut Album Motanka Out On June 7th!
11. April 2019
“The soundtrack to your post-sludge vision quest”
– Loudwire –
“Heavy and melodic, intoxicating and infectious, MOTANKA’s unique hybrid of metal and folk music is guaranteed to be one of 2019’s most memorable debuts.”
– Metal Sucks –
Ukrainian Wacken Metal Battle 2018 winners MOTANKA release a stunning and dramatic 7 minute official video for their first single “Verba” (Ukrainian for “willow tree”) from their upcoming self-titled debut album. The video underlines the strong connection of the Mystic Metal four-piece to mystical nature and ancient traditions.
MOTANKA will release their self-titled debut album Motanka on June 7th via Napalm Records. Influenced by traditional Ukrainian folk music, metal tunes and modern electronica, the band creates a very unique mix that the band refers to as Mystic Metal. MOTANKA managed to capture the trance-like magic of their live shows on their debut, which leaves each and every stereotype behind and hypnotizes with heavy ethno soundscapes.
MOTANKA on “Verba”:
“One of the strongest songs that has powerful energy. The energy that all of us really need now. All we want to say is in it, all you want to know or ask, you will find in it
- Fire Burns
- Des’ u horakh
- Oy ty moya zemle
- Bosymy nizhkamy
- Pace of the space
- What are you living for?
