Kruk, a Polish Hard Rock band, is almost ready to release their new album.
New material entitled “Be 3” is set to be released on November, 26th in Europe and January, 15th 2013 in USA (via MVD). And today the band reveal the cover artwork of the album.
Piotr Brzychcy, guitarist comments: “”The process of making the cover artwork for this album was probably more turbulent than just writing and recording the music. We wanted the album artwork to be very simple and at the same time meaningful. It supposed to be a proof that the band is evolving.”
“Child in Time”, a cover of the classic song from Deep Purple’s discography which promotes “Be 3” is still available on Metal Mind Production’ official channel on YouTube at THIS location.
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.
