A Double Presentation:
Hard n’ heavy and Symfo-metal in one place
Monolit and Symfomania present their new CDs in Kyiv
(Kiev or Kyiv is the capital of Ukraine for those geographically challenged)
Review and photos by by Orchidee Stachelig
Perhaps all fans of the band Monolit were aware that the guys were about to release their debut album. Finally it happened on the 16th of June at a presentation which took place at a Bingo club. There has been a massive advertising campaign all around Kyiv and in other cities that the band is known in, and it was surprising (and pleasant, of course) for me to see the ads at all underground stations – I was proud to know the guys in the picture.
The presentation was a double concert – the female band Symfomania plays symphonic metal was also presenting a CD. It was their second recording named “Aria”. It consists of cover-versions of hits of a famous Russian rock/metal band Aria. By the day of the presentation, the CD had not been released yet.
