Portuguese band Moonspell, the prominent Metal representatives in Europe, are going to visit Kiev with a big recital. Fernando Ribeiro describes his band’s creation as a ‘devilish music’. Moonspell’s music is an interesting mix of modern reefs, characteristic grim vocals full of operatic grandeur, deep fatalistic texts, which can be partly explained by the philosophical formation of Fernando, and sometimes a little saga, female vocals and male growls accompanied by heavy guitars. For now, the musicians do not stop at the selected style in its purest form, adding to their music some features of dark metal and love metal.

English rave electronic music band The Prodigy comes to Kiev not for the first time. Not surprising at all, considering that Ukrainian electronic music fans adore them. Along with The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim and The Crystal Method, The Prodigy has been credited as pioneers of the big beat genre, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s and 2000s. The group's brand of music makes use of various styles ranging from rave, hardcore techno, electro-industrial, jungle and breakbeat in the early 1990s to big beat and electronic rock with punk vocal elements later on. Each act of the band is a big event that strives with energy and craziness.

Perhaps it is one of the few groups of Ukrainian origin, which has returned to the stage and loudly declared itself in such a short period of time. Wonderful music, magic vocal, sometimes psychedelic text that does not fit in the head – it is all about daKooka live band. While listening to their music, you can travel through parallel worlds. Your brain shuts down, the body goes into a dance and the mind just enjoys brilliant sounds of piano combined with electroacoustic and tender female vocals.

Tape Flakes band is an eloquent example of the fact that there is a growing and unrestrained musical potential with Western thinking and trends in Ukraine. ‘Made for Love’ is this spring Tape Flakes’ launch of their new full-length creation. Presentation of the new ‘Made for Love’ album will become one of the most enjoyable events and expected concerts in April for the fans of electro-pop. The up sounding of the band has radically changed in comparison to earlier electronic minimalist works towards more juicy and lively sound.
