KHORS began their career in 2004 as a trio of skilled musicians already known within theUkrainian Heathen Black Metal scene. Inspired by the spiritual ancient world of the elderancestors, the band recorded their debut album “The Flame of Eternity’s Decline” in 2005. Havingstrengthened the band’s line-up with the addition of a rhythm guitarist, KHORS then began toplay live shows.The second album entitled “Cold” and released the following year, had a more mid-tempoapproach, in general having shifted the emphasis to melody and the atmospherics of keyboardsand leads. On this second album the band departed from many of the stereotypes of Black Metal.Further musical evolution saw the release of their third album, “Mysticism” – the mostprogressive record in the band’s discography so far, offering a cloak of atmosphere and moods tothe listener, incorporating elements of Dark Metal. After that the band began to receiveincreasing resonance in the world of underground metal.The fourth album, “Return To Abandoned”, released in 2010, garnered further support frommetal fans worldwide. Continuing the creative and ideological concept of the previous album,“Return To Abandoned” also absorbed the spirit of the earlier records as the band gainedstrength, spirit and wisdom from the years that had passed. The sound had become morecomplex, full of aggression and atmosphere. In 2011 Osmose Productions (France) had re-released this album in vinyl format.The last KHORS’ fifth full length album, is a real revelation and definitely another milestone in theband’s creativity. The recording of “Wisdom of Centuries” was finished at the beginning of 2012,and the band had signed a contract with Candlelight Records (Great Britain). The dense sound ofthe album is harmoniously complemented with the addition of ethnic instruments, shroudedwith a bewitching atmosphere of shamanic mysticism. This album is also the first in the band’shistory performed in their native language.In 2013 KHORS had signed a contract with Svarga Music giving the label their exclusive rights forre-releasing the band’s first four albums.
