SÂMBĂTĂ, 4 martie, HARD CLUB vă invită la concertul trupelor RIOT MONK si HARMASAR!
RIOT MONK formed in 2014, with influences from the Seattle “grunge” scene (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, Alice In Chains) and more extreme but still melodic modern metal bands such as Pantera, Down, Metallica, Godsmack, Crowbar, etc. -there’s even some Lynyrd Skynyrd in the mix!
RIOT MONK have played at many major festivals in Romania, including “Posada Rock”, “Focus Festival”, “Plopstock”and “Dust Riders Moto Fest”.
They have won many prizes, including Vice-Champion of GBOB Romania 2016 and second place in Jaxx Rock Battle 2015. They will also ply at “Magura Wave Festival” in Simeria this year, a slot won at GBOB Romania 2016.
This show in Cluj-Napoca is part of a short tour launching the compilation album, “Rock Pe Paine 3” (CD / MP3), which will include two tracks from RIOT MONK.

Mihai Goth (Mișu) – Lead Guitars, Harmonica, Backing Vocals

HARMASAR hail from Chisinau, Republica Moldova and were formed in 2013. They have toured Romania, Bulgaria and Republica Moldova on many occasions, including festival appearances at “Rock’n’Iasi Outdoors 2016”, “Maris Fest 2016” rock’n’bike fest in Targu-Mures, “Folk & Metal Fest III” in Bucharest and “Rock’n’Haret” in Chisinau.
They play a furiously energetic brand of pagan folk metal, influenced by Korpiklaani, Finntroll, Eluveitie, Amon Amarth, Arkona and Bucovina. Like all the best folk metal bands, they also draw inspiration from the history, myths, legends and folk culture of their own country.
HARMASAR have evolved their own unique sound and look characterised by the deranged stage presence of their lead singer, Max Miller, the lilting panpipes of their talented flautist, Pavel Ungureanu and their adoption of Moldavian shepherds’ costumes.
At the end of 2016, HARMASAR launched their debut album, “Din Pamant” on CD and MP3, winning second place in the prestigious Metalhead Awards poll for “Best Romanian Metal Album”.
