From Kiev, Ukraine we find the female-fronted oriental metal IGNEA, a band that first saw the light in early 2011 under the name PARALLAX.
After active rehearsals in summer 2012, the band started working on the debut EP titled Sputnik. Its concept is based on space topics, in particular on Mars and first ever human-made Earth satellite, Sputnik-1, as well as John Carter movie and Pioneer One series.
February, 2013, the band entered Morton Studio to start recording Sputnik. Apart from engineering and producing, Max Morton has greatly contributed to PARALLAX debut EP, acting as session guitarist and singing backing vocals in "Planet War" song. The EP "Sputnik" was released on June 15th, 2013, in the end of the same year PARALLAX performed at its first gig within Halloween Horror Night fest (Bingo club, Kiev, Ukraine). In the beginning of 2014 did PARALLAX released a joint single with Yossi Sassi, ex-guitarist of ORPHANED LAND. In Autumn, 2015, the band changes its name to IGNEA and releases the debut video for ALGA, today's tune.
