The story of LYUDOTA KOVAL begins in 2008 when Ivan Kordik, a member of IMPERIA (Temryuk) commences the recording of his own music unused by IMPERIA. In 2009 he finally quits IMPERIA and concentrates on his solo project. Later Hells, the former drummer of IMPERIA, joins Ivan. The first rehearsal of LYUDOTA KOVAL takes place on the day of summer solstice in 2011. In just a few days Max (guitar) joins the band. After 6 months of intense rehearsals the concert program is ready. The style of LYUDOTA KOVAL can be described as black metal with a touch of atmospheric and pagan metal. In February of 2012 the band plays its first show in “Su-27” rock-bar (Krasnodar) opening for DEBAUCHERY (Germany) with some other local bands. The band plays many shows and shares stage with such bands like ARKONA, AXEGRESSOR, BUTTERFLY TEMPLE, RAROG, PUT SOLNTSA, IZMOROZ. LYUDOTA KOVAL also takes part in many festivals and shows both in Krasnodarsky region and in Russia in general. In autumn of 2013 on the background of constant line-up problems the band records its debut titled “Eto Nash Zemlya” (This is our land). The album is recorded in a home studio of Andrey "Michman" Ikonnikov – the long-time friend of the band, who plays all guitars on this release. Finally LYUDOTA KOVAL overcomes line-up problems and commences work on much more obscure, complex and progressive material...
