was founded in August 1996, when Miron has advertized for a group creation.
After a long search, in May 1998 the structure was finally generated. From that
time, TVANGESTE consisted of:
Miron - guitar, vocals
(ex-OBSESSION) - guitar. One of the most serious problems in the TVANGESTE development
was the the real problem to find in Kaliningrad a guitar player capable to combinie
the storm speed and melodic minds. With the Nicholas' arrival rhythmic
part of TVANGESTE music has changed fantastically.
Victoria - keyboards.
In the autumn of 1998 in TVANGESTE comes keyboarder Victoria, playing in DIS
PATER (doom) and ROMOWE RIKOITO (gothic). She is very professional musician
with extraordinary feeling heavy, gloomy music. She has brought a lot of new
in TVANGESTE music.
Vanoe - bass. On the long remaining free bassist
place, has came young, energetic and talented guitar player Vanoe (ex-DIVERSION
In the beginning of 1998 at two studios (DG Sound and Brudenia Rec.)
were written down debut single "Blood Dreams" and demo "Thinking...".
The first expirience in recording has received good responses and reviews in
the Russia and CIS countries. After that times we have decided, that the often
concerts for TVANGESTE are not necessary. We have begun our promotion. In the
spring of 1998, our manager has met the director of "Apostrophe" (the
official Century Media representative in Russia). He has made the offer to us
- producing and release the first our CD with abroad distribution. We have received
the invitation to take part in the begin of a September CRADLE OF FILTH concert
in Moscow. But August crisis in Russia has brought damn corrective. In producing
was temporarily refused on uncertain term...it was a really black line in Tvangeste
history but from that times our development grows without any crisises and problems.
In January of 2000 we have finished our half year work under our debut album
"Damnation of Regiomontum". This full size 50 min album contains 5 tracks.
Classical instruments, nice female voice and argressive speed guitars. It's
hard to describe music by words. The style of the Tvangeste music is something
about melodic fast sympho black metal. This album was sold more than 5000 copies
in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Many Russian magazines, radios and labels have
recognized Tvangeste as the best black metal band of 2000 year. We have many
letters from all over the world with good words about our music. Tvangeste has
an official website (http://tvangeste.da.ru) where everybody can download the
full version of our album in good quality mp3 files, find our info, history,
lyrics and ideology.
Now we are going to record a new material. It will be 60
min. Metal symphony. Yes symphony, because we have an agreements with Kaliningrad
Symphonic Orcertsa and Church Choir to help us with our recording. We have achieved
a good results in Russia and we think we can more...We can represent Russian
metal abroad and now searching for a good label to sign in. If You have found
