As previously announced Kruk, one of the best hard rock bands from Poland, return in November with a brand new studio album entitled “Be 3”. And today we reveal another track promoting the album. “Master Blaster” is available on Metal Mind Productions’ official channel on YouTube in THIS location.
“Master Blaster” features guest vocalist – Astek from a Polish metalcore / deathcore band Frontside.
Kruk’s new material was produced by Marcin Kindla, previously associated with Polish pop scene. “The material from this album is undoubtedly still rock music. However, we do feel a great urge to write it in a slightly different way than it was with our two previous albums.” says Piotr Brzychcy (guitars). Piotr also comments on the title of the new album: „’Be 3′ is a reflection of what is happening in our music and in ourselves. We are here now, we write music, we play it, we’re releasing another album, we love doing it and, most importantly, we are free to do so. It’s a kind of a manifesto which says – we do not want to change that state.”
“Be 3” will be released by Metal Mind Productions on November, 26th in Europe and January, 15th 2013 in USA (via MVD).

KRUK was formed in 2001 by Piotr Brzychcy and Krzysztof Walczyk. The band members were heavily inspired by Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep and it was these influences that shaped Kruk’s music, placing it within a classic rock framework. In 2006 Kruk recorded the album „Memories” with Grzegorz Kupczyk (Ceti’s & Turbo’s vocalist). The album was a tribute to the aforementioned bands. In the next years, Kruk followed their own path and managed to forge their own sound. Their proper debut album entitled „Before He’ll Kill You”, released in 2009, was well received both by media and by music fans. The year 2011 marked the release of their second studio album. Doogie White (ex.Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tank) and Piotr Kupicha (Feel) made guest appearances on „It Will Not Come Back”. The album was available with a bonus live DVD featuring a 100-minute concert footage. „It Will Not Come Back” was enthusiastically reviewed both in Poland and overseas. Kruk supported such legends of rock as Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, Graham Bonnet, ex-singer from Rainbow, and Michael Schenker Group.
