Velesar will play in Chorzow during the Bratnia Krew tour with bands Runika and Forbidden Omen.
Velesar is a Polish folk metal project, established in 2018 by Marcin Velesar Wieczorek – former vocalist of Goddess of Sin and Radogost bands and creator of River of Time band. He was born out of a fascination with Slavic culture and history and a love of both metal and folk music. He draws his main inspirations from Slavic mythology, ancient beliefs and rituals, but also from fairy tales and legends that are the remains of the rich cultural heritage of the old Slavs. Merkfolk was founded at the beginning of 2013 on the initiative of siblings – Irmina and Rafał. Since November 2013 the band has been performing regularly. The name of the band, in a loose translation (from Norwegian), means “carrying folk”. Merkfolk’s songs are catchy melodies, played by accordion and violin, and heavy sound of guitars and drums, with a female growl. Wolfarian creates music inspired by Nordic sagas and mythology, Celtic melodies and culture. They combine different musical genres and lyrics about paganism, battles and vicinities.
