Biography :

Apostate was formed in 1993 in Lviv (Ukraine). The first demo “Consign to Oblivion” was recorded in 1995. This tape was very well received by Ukrainian underground press and fans. In 1997 appears an EP "A Song of the Dead Lake". This work and plenty of live performances brought for Apostate a cult status. The band split up in 1998. In 1999 vocalist gathered new line-up and continued Apostate, but in 2001 they disbanded again. In 2007 compilation "From Consign To Oblivion to A Song Of The Dead Lake" was released. Its positive feedback was the reason why Oleksandr Kostko (bass guitar) decided to reanimate Apostate in January'2009. During 2009-2010 the band has actively played live (including Doom Over Kiev III fest), sharing the stage with the renowned bands such as Cemetery Of Scream, Skepticism, Sadist, Crionics, Virgin Snatch. Especially precious was the experience of supporting Therion in part of their tour across the Baltics. In October 2010 the new album "Trapped in a Sleep" was released. Now the band is planning an European tour in support of this album for the first half of 2011, as well as writing material for the next album.
