Nug is a progressive/post-metal band from Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine who formed in 2017. The lineup holds Yuri Dubrovsky (vocals), Vitaliy Rysakov (guitar), Yuriy Popov (guitar), Andrii Kerečun (bass), and Yevhen Tarasenko (drums). They’re currently planning to release their debut LP Alter Ego on August 14th via Willowtip Records.
While we await the full release, you can enjoy the first single titled “Beast / Звір.” Similarities to household names of the post-metal genre like Isis and Intronaut surface, yet the vocal harmonization and Meshuggah-like grooves allowed the piece to stand out. Check out the debut single now below.
