After releasing their latest studio album, Dreams of Lands Unseen, uprising Ukrainian metal band IGNEA is ready to take to the stages of the EU and UK supporting Fear Factory. But before embarking on that journey, the fearless five-piece will go on a charity tour throughout their home country of Ukraine in cities, including those that are close to the frontline, fulfilling the words of their president Zelensky stated in February 2022: “you will see our faces, not our backs”.

To hype their fans up, IGNEA have released a live experience video for their song “Daleki Obriyi” (Далекі Обрії’), sung in their native language. It was filmed at the Faine Misto festival in Ukraine – the biggest festival to happen in the country since the beginning of the war – with around 15,000 visitors over the course of three days. At this event, funds for the needs of Ukraine were raised.

As a winner at The Best Ukrainian Metal Act Awards (including “Best Ukrainian Metal Act 2020”) and having gained many millions of Spotify streams with fan-favorites like “Alga”“Leviathan” and “Jinnslammer”IGNEA have already earned their status as an unmissable band-to-watch. The captivating concept album, Dreams of Lands Unseen, was released this past April via Napalm Records, and considering the ongoing the circumstances of the war, the album exceeded all expectations – inviting the listener to follow them into new worlds!

Vocalist Helle Bohdanova comments:
“Soon, it’s going to be two years of the full-scale war of Russia against Ukraine. We’re losing the bravest people who are freeing our territories and who also make it possible for such events as the Faine Misto festival to happen.

This one performance has charged us for months to come. It was the first music event of such a scale in Ukraine since February 2022. And it wasn’t happening just for fun — as it was a charity festival raising funds for the needs of Ukraine through ticket sales and auctions, and even workshops on tactical medicine, and mine and explosive hazard management.

We feel that this is much more powerful than some usual official video, especially for our song in Ukrainian language. Here, you can see Ukrainian metalheads living their moment. Any next minute, there can be an air raid siren, any next minute can be the last one. And we hope that you can feel this energy, like we felt it from the stage.”

Dive into heavy, score-like sonic worlds and dream of lands unseen with Ukrainian force IGNEA!

The 10-track concept album, Dreams of Lands Unseen, reflects the life of Ukrainian photographer and documentarian Sofia Yablonska, known for traveling to very distant corners of the world while documenting the lives of tribes and natives, which was especially dangerous and uncommon for a woman of her time. Sonically, IGNEA creates a captivating masterpiece which resembles, thanks in part to diverse genre-influences, an epic soundtrack-like experience. Producing, mixing and mastering was helmed by Max Morton (Jinjer, Morton) whilst Dmitry Kim managed engineering and drum production. The track “Daleki Obriyi” is only one of two songs on the album sung in Ukrainian language, honoring their home country and mother tongue. Implying distant horizons, the album’s subject, Sofia, is now far away from modern human civilization. Brutal death metal rhythms and shouts crash together with catchy synth passages, representing the beauty of the islands. Ready to move on, Sofia sails to the next country – spending so much time on the water, it becomes her “Incurable Disease”. Carried away by the gleeful synth-sounds of the sea and turbulent, pounding waves, it creates an extraordinary voyage. Songs like “The Golden Shell” and “Opiumist” – the latter featuring Finnish vocalist Tuomas Saukkonen of Wolfheart – are an ode to Yablonska’s experiences she gathered in Chinese culture. Cheery eastern melodies and brutal growls create the atmosphere of a heavy trip. On “Nomad’s Luck”, restless guitar riffs mixed with powerful deep shouts create an ominous sound – a symbol of the constant questioning of one’s lifetime.
