This week we honor the rich and fearlessly epic metal of Ukraine. Rooted in the black metal and symphonic metal of the 1990s and honed in the nation’s high musical heritage, Ukrainian metal visions burst forth from Elderblood, Jinjer, Soom, Rise or Die, Ignea, Khors, 1914 (pictured), Fleshgore, Space of Variations, and many more. Let’s hope these bands return to action in 2023…know your Roots!
