FACTOR STRAHA is a renowned Russian modern metal band in the vein of SOILWORK and IN FLAMES founded by the former TRIZNA’s musicians and highly acclaimed by metal audience: this is one of the most touring and the best live bands in Russia.
FACTOR STRAHA was originally established as a project of renowned musicians on Russian metal scene: the band TRIZNA and Kirill Nemolyaev, frontman and founder of the cult band BONY NEM, radio host and “happenings” organizer. Recorded in 2005, the first CD of the band “Teatr Voennykh Deistviy, act 1” presented powerful modern nu metal stuff with conceptual Russian lyrics and was highly acclaimed by the audience and metal mass media in Russia. At that moment FACTOR STRAHA consisted of five musicians: Ilya Aleksandrov (vocals), Kirill Nemolyaev (vocals), Dmitri Skopin (bass), Stranislav Vosnesenski (drums). Two very special guests, EPIDEMIA’s frontman Max Samosvat (guest vocals) and Dmitri Borisenkov from BLACK OBELISK (guest guitars) participated in the recording.
The band were actively touring around Russia simultaneously preparing the material for the next studio album “Teatr Voennykh Deistviy, act 2”. Many respected metal stars took part in the recording of the second masterpiece of the band as guest musicians: Oliver Holzwarth (SIEGES EVEN, DEMONS & WIZARDS, BLIND GUARDIAN), Vladimir Ermakov (BLACK OBELISK, MECHANICAL POET), Dmitri Borisenkov (BLACK OBELISK), Max Samosvat (EPIDEMIA), Vasili Kazurov (KORROZIA METALLA).
After the album was released in the autumn of 2006, the band parted ways with Nemolyaev. But it didn’t hurt the FACTOR STRAHA’s way. Moreover, the band reached an even stronger position on Russian metal scene. The official FACTOR STRAKHA fan-club was established. Anton Stravinski Glushko (keyboards) entered the band. After two years of active and regular tours, in 2008 the band was ready to come up with its third album “Tvoy Ideal’ny Mir”, which became even more hard and modern than its predecessors.
