The result of this collaboration is the album Dark Side of the Forest, and a many of concerts in Poland and abroad, including Radogost’s tour with the russian folk metal band Grai.
Runika is a warsaw bad with charismatic female vocals, playing folk-inspired melodies in a sturdy metal housing. While playing they combine mysticism with the energy of the four elements, bringing listeners to the epic battles, sutych feasts with heat, secrets of the cursed in statues and unusual creatures in the scrounge.
Morhana is one of the first Polish metal folk bands, whose beginnings date back to 2006. They combine both heavy and melodic sounds, achieving a balance between folk music and harsh but not devoid of character metal.
