Bio

Enviktas are a 4 piece Folk Metal band based in Newcastle NSW.

The Music can best be described as a fusion of Traditional, World Folk music, Classical and Extreme Metal with an element of theatre when it comes to live performances. The band place a great deal of time and energy in the creation and composing of their music and have earned a solid reputation for putting on a great show.

Since 2010 the band has played a number of supporting and headlining shows along side local and International bands such as Warbringer and Gloryhammer.

The band released its debut EP in March 2014 gaining worldwide exposure after 2 years of writing and recording.

Since 2015 to the present, Enviktas has been writing a follow up, debut album entitled "Mantra" teaming up with one of Australia’s finest Metal drummers Robin Stone of Norse and Gods of Eden, and the production skills of Ryan Huthnance of Emissary Studios to explore even heavier sounds and themes than the previous release. In October 2016, the band released its first single from Mantra, entitled “Denali” which features guest vocals from Extreme Metal legend and pioneer Sakis Tolis of the band Rotting Christ.

Dark and obscure Extreme Metal with a primordial basis is what you can expect from this young band. With a thirst for experimentation and a passion for expanding on the dark side of tribal folk music into an eclectic mix of World contemporary Metal, you can expect more than a few surprises with the new release Mantra.

Stay tuned!
