Komu Vnyz

From 1988 KOMU VNYZ played music that didn't enter the common canons of Ukrainian rock stage of that time. The lyric was complicated, impressive and full of dark romance, that is common for gothic-rock, although even then KV were using some elements of industrial energetic, that become their characteristic feature today. Because of inability to find some standard music term critics in 1991 called this music "urban, industrial gothic". So KV created its own type of gothic rock and their dark-romantic image became the true original image of Ukrainian gothic. In 1990's five men wearing dark dress-coats high leather boots and silver crosses, caring to Ukrainian society their type of underground gloomy philosophy, made their own music revolution. For those who listened to them that was the rebirth and purifying . Andriy Sereda was and is now the unofficial prophet for everyone who lives in real Ukraine. For those whose spirit is not jet sold and mind is not darkened with money and evil forces. In Ukraine and in Canada they were caller "The Dark Cossacks". They were and they are Goths . And they were and are creating the gothic in KV style.
KV - one of the most professional band in Ukraine , if not the only one. Now KV plays gothic rock/industrial mixed with romantic symbolism and ancient traditions, ancient Ukrainian culture and dark renaissance philosophy plus eternal search of whether God whether meaning of life.
Every song has its original root and is usually connected to Ukrainian customs and emits real Ukrainian spirit. The spirit that has almost disappeared because was almost destroyed. The spirit that KV now is regenerating in a great way.
The name and cast of the band didn't change from the beginning. In spite of the complicated and hard fate and specific name (Whom's Down) Cossacks from KV didn't go down, but went upper and upper and took "appropriate" positions in music charts of Ukraine, more precisely didn't take - cause didn't want. And didn't think, that those were "charts". Those are convenient advertisement for commercial pop and alternative. Gothic, industrial or decadence romance didn't match their terms.
But KV never aimed to go up. Go calm, not betraying itself and its principles - this is the Way. Their main goal was always to bring knowledge of hidden side of soul and secret corners of mind of audience to wake it from eternal dream of our life lazy days.
KV participated in more then 40 music festivals and judges couldn't not to distinguish the band, even taking into account their usual problems with authorities and existing ideology, cause KV cares for UKRAINE and MUSIC and not for those who want to earn on these terms.

Komu Vnyz. 4: Shevchenko. (EP). /digi-pack/.

..There is space both for an atmospheric ballad, and for the proprietary hard "art-bombardment", and a recitative prophecy/spell that makes you freeze in other words, listen. A worthy succinct statement.

"Rok-Sich" Festival.

...the collection was compiled skillfully the recording house "Kraina Mriy" is experienced in doing that. As a result, it is really interesting to listen to it: familiar pieces alternate with quite fresh ones, known groups with those that are now only gaining speed. And two basic features unite all of these songs good quality and inflammatory energy.
