Ektomorf was founded in ’94, by frontman Zoli Farkas, in Hungary, Mezőkovácsháza. The band has taken a long road to its way to succeed: after releasing 3 records and touring around in Hungary for many years, Ektomorf took the chance to go international, bringing their heavy grooves and harsh lyrics for all the people around the globe. The mix of thrash, hardcore and traditional gipsy music got recognized by many, and success was provided by their legendary energetic and destructive stage performances – wich made Ektomorf not only the most famous hungarian metal-act, but also one of the leading artist in their genre.
Signed by Nuclear Blast, producing their hit albums like ’Destroy’, ’Instinct’ and ’Outcast’ it was proven that Ektomorf can’t go wrong with their powerful, groovy style, and kept on walking the same line while adding more melodies and traditional accoustic elements, proving their critics that there’s a next level to elevate to. After changing record label and getting signed by AFM Records the band released their 2010 recording ’Redemption’, wich was another relentless manifestation of the monster what’s being feeded by anger, hate and social criticism, with a touch of human soul. That was followed by ‘The Acoustic’, which was a nice passion-project - taken from that album, the video of ’To Smoulder’ took a rise being played daily in mainstream media. Later that year Ektomorf released their album ’Black Flag’, wich offers 50 minutes of massive grooves, unforgetable melodies, and new, even more sophisticated sound.
In January 2014 the band released its new studio album, titled as ‘RETRIBUTION’. Again, with producer Tue Madsen the hungarian groove-metal beast continues to impress with its huge sound and intense, powerful songs, wich many of the press already labeled as their best album so far.The first video for “NUMB AND SICK” has became an instant hit, a long awaited groove-metal anthem. Ektomorf is scheduled for its longest European Tour so far – 35 dates around the old continent, to reach out for all their fans and of course, promote their newest masterpiece.
Ektomorf is touring regularry as headliners across Europe, packing clubs and providing killer moshpits, but also made many appearances on the old continent’s finest festivalgrounds, being a regular act on Wacken Open Air, With Full Force, Sziget, 70000 Tons of Metal, Rock am Ring/Rock in Park – just to name few of the biggests. The hungarians releasing brutal forces from stage during their 90 minute live show – leaving noone in doubts about the quartett’s musically and emotionally supreme performance.
Earthshaking grooves with a critical, energetic message – Ektomorf will break down all the walls and unite people on the dancefloor around the world, from the smallest clubs to the biggest festivals.
