Heavy metal band "Metka" starts in autumn
2001, when on the 8th of October the vocalist Vladimir
Vetukov joins the band on one of the first rehearsal
During a couple of years, without having too much
success, "Metka" plays in some small local
rock clubs, and so the founder of the group, Zack
Eswee, decides to create a concert alliance with other
prominent representatives of St. Petersburg metal
scene of that time. This association got the name
"The Guild of Heavy Metal" and was successfully
carried into effect.
Since then "Metka" starts climbing higher
and higher. After the 2005 debut releases of the album
"Stupivshi za gran" and the single CD "Plasticine
crow", which even then was a visiting card of
the band, "Metka" gains evident popularity,
gathers its own Fan club team, playing gigs and creates
2005 and 2006 was a peak of creativity and concert
life. The songs "Enchanted" and "Plastic
Crow" sometimes coould be heard on the radio.
"Metka" gives successful concerts and makes
its first tours. On the 3rd of June 2006 "Metka"
gives a big two hour solo concert.
But nothing lasts forever and in autumn 2006 the
decline of enthusiasm grasps the band, and numerous
disagreements lead the group to stagnation. So in
summer 2007 Zack Eswee publishes the official announcement
of "freezing" the group as a music project
for an indefinite period.
