BAND - OVERVIEW

 

Monastery Dead is a death metal band of Russian origin formed in 2004 in Saint-Petersburg by Vadim Nikolaev (bass). Since the day of its foundation, Monastery Dead performs a lot of gigs countrywide and abroad sharing the stage with such monsters as Haemorrhage, Dying Fetus, Fleshless, Amagortis, Debauchery and many others. In 2009 Vadim meets Kirill Zharikov (drums), who becomes the second constant member of the band. That very year the band releases its debut album called "Victims Of Senseless Massacre" at Moscow label Musica Production. 
In 2011 Anton Dubov (vox) leaves the band. Daria Semikhatova comes to do his job and in 2012 Monastery Dead releases its second album called "Cold and Gloom" which turns out to be extremely successful in spite of using female vocal and gets a lot of positive feedback. 
Shortly after the second release Monastery Dead is left by Alexey Pishikin (guitars) who decides to give up music according to his personal reasons and since that time the band has only one guitar player, Roman Kondratjev (Refawn) who was invited to take part in the project as a session musician a couple of years before. 
Daria Semikhatova also leaves Monastery Dead after the presentation of its second album having a lack of time for the band's activities and the project renews its line-up inviting Anton Malov (ex-Deathclave) to perform vocals and Kirill Iscariot Tatarinov (ex-Schism) to play guitars. Monastery Dead proceeds performing and composing new material without any line-up changes for several months, but decides to get a constant guitar player for Roman Kondratjev's place and invites Gleb Rusakov (ex-Refawn) who leaves the band shortly before the work on the new release starts. 
In 2015 Monastery Dead records and releases its third album called “Black Gold Appetite” which was inspired by the anticipation of the third world war and dedicated to the revelation of undisguised human vices. While the work was in progress, the vacant place of the second guitar player was occupied by Nikita Volkov. The album was released at four Russian labels at once and got a powerfull feedback of the genre’s connoisseurs countrywide and abroad. 
After several gigs dedicated to the new release Nikita Volkov also leaves the band and in 2016 Monastery Dead goes on tour and performs as a quartet again. 
In autumn 2016 the vacancy in occupied by Anton Mamrukov (ex-Corpse in Bag). 
In January 2017 Monastery Dead records and releases an new single Mindscars. 

Today Monastery Dead has a lot of plans for the future composing the new material and having more gigs and offers than it ever had, getting new experience and power, staying brutal!
