Roots of WELICORUSS [epic/extreme metal] go back to deep 2002 in Western Siberia, when founder and leader of band, Alexey Boganov, started as one-man bands but then formed full-fledged band and at that time Welicoruss became one of the pioneers of epic black metal in Russia and CIS contries. Band releases their first opuses, all the while experimenting with a style which could be described as symphonic black metal with elements of pagan, epic, melodic metal, saturated with dense epic symphonic arrangements with various types of vocals. In their lyrics and conception Welicoruss refers to the secret, occult side of life, mixing with the national, local Siberian “shade”, mixed with tribal mysticism, primal fury and majesty of Natural forces.
In 2013 Welicoruss relocated to Prague (Czech Republic) and started new work on completely different level, full of permanent tours, concerts and festivals. Welicoruss had the honor of being invited to such festivals as Hellfest (FR), Wave Gotik Treffen (DE), Made Of Metal (CZ), The Legends Rock Fest (CZ), Ragnarok fest (DE) and many more. In 2020 Welicoruss was signed by German label El Puerto Records, released their last album “Siberian Heathen Horde” and going on tour with Eisregen.
