Vorkuta (2002-present) is a Black Metal band from Hungary.
riginally known as Fjord, Hungary's Vorkuta began in 2002 with the aim to create cold and desecrating black metal. The band started out with the release of an unsatisfactory demo called Apocalypse before changing their name to the present Vorkuta under which they released several limited editions and split releases and a double LP tribute to Bathory.
In 2006 the act caught the attention of 'Paragon Records' who would release the act's debut album, Into The Chasms of Lunacy, an album that showcased that band's ability to create old-school black metal along with the newer more symphonic styles. The band is continuing to work on split releases with other artists at time of writing.
