Out Now From Napalm Records MOTANKA
The previously unknown band called MOTANKA managed to completely stun and thrill a huge audience at 2018`s edition of the Wacken Open Air Metal Battle: The Ukrainian newcomers, using traditional Ukrainian instruments, deliver a wholly unique mix of metal and folk, with elements of modern electronica. The four-piece has managed to capture the trance-like magic of their live shows on their self-titled debut – what the band refers to as "Mystic Metal" leaves each and every stereotype behind and hypnotizes with heavy ethno soundscapes.
