Finally there happened the long-awaited and very
important event in the history of the "Metka"

We want to recall that this song is a unique idea,
which some called a "cover on cover on cover".
The famous Irish folk song was interpreted by "Thin
Lizzy", but in a more serious and heavy way this
has been done by "Metallica", and this song
got the name as "Whiskey in the Jar".
"Metka" has decided to combine this hit
together with a well-known Russian hit - a song from
the cartoon "Plasticine Crow". The group
performed this song many times at concerts, and every
time it was an incredible success. Soon you will hear
it in the professional audio quality!
The closest concert - April 24 (Thursday), Club "Arctica".
||At the last concert
there was a "baptism of fire" for our new
drummer Sergei Bushkevich, who came to replace Kirill
Dmitriyev. So you can expect to see soon some additions
to the "Band / Line-up" section! Now, with
renewed vigor, we are beginning a much more active concert
activity than it was in the last year. Next concert
with our band as a headliner will be the festival in
the Arctica Club on April 28! Check out for the details
in the "Concerts" section!
