Kiev-based Firelake band was formed in 1997 by Oleg Yavorsky (guitar), Alexey Akulshyn (guitar) and Andrey Salnikov (drums). Under the influence of extremely popular at the time ‘Swedish wave’, the first musical compositions of Firelake were created with a slant to classic melodic death metal. The debut performance of the band took place in spring of 1998 in the Kiev metal bar ‘Grave’, followed by a few more gigs in the city. Shortly bass guitarist/vocalist Roman aka Thorn joins the band. In search of its own style and sound, the band tries combining Slavic folk melody elements with aggressive death metal riffs. In 1999 Firelake takes part in several Ukrainian events, including among other ‘At Voland’s’ and The Great Commandment, to perform with such bands as Disclaimer, Te Deum, Unerase, Reflection, Camera Obscura, Egoism and more, only to firmly settle itself on the metal scene. Media starts talking about Firelake – ‘Ukraine Young’ newspaper publishes an interview, band members answer listeners’ questions live on air of the Radio Rocks Ukraine. In 2000 for personal reasons Alexey Akulshyn leaves the band, soon replaced by Ruslan Drozd (guitar). The band gets down to polish the material accumulated and prepare for the first album recording – The Temptation Journey. IN 2005 the album of 10 compositions (best out of collected in the period of 2001-2005) was mixed and ready for release. Due to various reasons the factual release of the album happens as late as early 2007. In 2005 the band undergoes another change of staff: instead of the quit Andrey Salnikov and Alena Korol (back vocals) there come to the band Dmitry Nazarenko (drums, ex-Sarcasm) and Olga Lyapina (vocals). In summer 2005 Firelake take place in the gaining momentum international festival Metal Heads Mission performing on one stage with Napalm Death, Cenotaph, Parricide and many other ex-USSR and European bands. On August 25, 2005 the band plays a set together with a known Polish band Darzamat. Instead of Thorn who quits the band there comes Sergey Dvuzhylny (bass guitar, ex-Witch Hunter), and a while later – Victoria Kotenko (ex-IDOL). In early 2006 the renewed Firelake gets down to implement its most ambitious project: recording of a soundtrack to S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl computer game to have become a cult project way ahead of release. In February 2006 in Moscow, broadcasted by MTV Russia there takes place a prestigious game awards ceremony Gameland Award, where Firelake performs S.T.A.L.K.E.R. soundtrack live. Subsequently, the official S.T.A.L.K.E.R. soundtracks selection CD includes three compositions by Firelake. In 2006 Ruslan Drozd quits the band, to be later replaced by Andrey Larionov (guitar, ex-Witch Hunter). In March 2007 Firelake together with Saints Petersburg metallers Morrah participates in the Russian-Ukrainian tour of SuidakrA to support their new album Caledonia, visiting Saints Petersburg, Moscow, Ryazan, Yaroslavl, Lugansk, Odessa, and, ultimately, Kiev. Currently the band works on creating its second full-fledged album.
