Hungarian neo thrash masters EKTOMORF are set to release their new DVD “Warpath (Live and Life On The Road)” on August 25th 2017.
EKTOMORF was founded in 1993 in Mezökovacsháza, Hungary, a small city near the Romanian border, by Zoltán “Zoli” Farkas. In the actual line-up Zoli – songwriter and mastermind of the band – is the only remaining founding member. The band is completed by Tomi Schrottner (guitar), Szabolcs Murvai (bass) and Robert Jaksa (drums).
Due to his gipsy background Zoli saw himself confronted with racism and prejudices. But this didn’t hold the band back from establishing an international career. The breakthrough came, when EKTOMORF started their collaboration with Danish producer Tue Madsen in 2003. Madsen helped the band to find their very own, super fat, modern and powerful sound that EKTOMORF evolved since “Destroy” (2004) steadily.
EKTOMORF’s lyrics reflect this situation and deal with discrimination, society, pain and anger but show a strong will to survive and overcome all problems. Their music combines the burning fire of the primal gipsy music with modern elements: groovy, down tuned guitar riffs and aggressive drums, supplemented by powerful and raw screaming vocals became their trademarks.
Regardless of all circumstances EKTOMORF established itself as one of the most successful Hungarian bands, well known for their intensive, energetic, mind blowing live shows. Playing extensive headliner tours and shows at the biggest European festivals (e.g. Wacken, With Full Force, Sziget, Rock am Ring) the band build up a strong fan base throughout Europe.
“Warpath (Live and Life On The Road)” includes the band’s entire gig from Wacken Open Air 2016 on DVD and CD, plus an amazing more than 60 minutes long, brutally honest and heavily entertaining behind-the-scenes documentary of EKTOMORF’s tour life: “Live And Life On The Road”. This is real as it gets!
Audio mix was again handled by the band’s longtime engineer Tue Madsen (Antfarm studios).
