Biography

TBF's music background consists of Scandinavian folk tunes styled as hard rock riffs. Lyrics are primarily in Russian though there are some songs in ancient Icelandic and they follow traditional content of real folk songs. In contradiction to Viking-Metal songs of tarred decks, clash of Viking swords and twilight of gods TBF words are stylistically very close to genuine folk songs that were sang in taverns all over Old Europe. Exiting dance tunes always fever fans including giggish students in a nightclub and severe bearded bikers at spring opening of driving season.
Violin, whistle and the singer's wild roars make funs find around not walls of a club but dark mossy wooden logs of a tavern, and shadows of a fire dancing on them. And stomp of feet on dirt floor, and discord of voices, and hollow sound of horns, and clatter of wooden mugs.
