BIOGRAPHY:

Band Kuga was formed in 2003. In Belgrade and held its first performance
in club Holliday in July of the same year. From its begining Kuga is oriented
towards its own material and creates songs influenced with heavy-thrash-speed
bands from '80-ties. In that period Kuga starts old spirit of ex-Yu metal scene,
which was neglected for years. By words of old metalheads, Kuga is almost only
true representative of thrash/speed metal with Serbian lyrics, and band that was first
and maybe the only one that continued path of legendary ex-Yu bands who
sang in Serbian language: Heller, Bombarder, Pergament and others which were
banging around 15 years befor Kuga.

In period 2003-2005 band changed almost complete line-up
except singer Bojan Ljiljak, who is even today most
representativ member of Kuga. During this period band
played large number of concerts througt out Serbia along with numerous
Serbian bands, and also in 2005 with French death metal band Bloody Sign.
Also in that period, while guitarist was Nemanja Djordjevic, Kuga made few recordings,
but production quality was quite low, so these were left officialy unpublished.
Line-up of Kuga functions unchanged from 2005 when guitarist Marko Zegarac
joined the band, to this day. During 2006. Kuga performs as support for band
Tankard in Belgrade, and at the end of same year band records first serious
material „Kuga – Live 2006.“. In 2007. follows performance at EXIT festival on which it
played just before band U.D.O., and next year Kuga records first promo track
“Sile Zla” from upcoming album, as part of celebration of fifth year of existence along with
concert in large hall of Belgrade club “Akademija” where, as guest, performed
famous guitarist Ljubisa Racic (ex-Bijelo Dugme). Debut album “Najcrnje Noci”
was recorded in mid 2009. in Studio 5 of PGP-RTS, and complete production
and mastering were finished in 2010. For publishing Kuga waited
until September of 2011. when it made deal with Mexican record label “Sade Records”.
Tracks “Lost Soul” & “U Svetu Prevara” was used also
in Serbian high budget movie “Loveless Zoritza”. Release of album is followed
with promotional tour and announcement of video for track ”Debela zena”.
In this period Kuga works on new songs which will
take place on their second album.

In the middle of 2011 Kuga continues work with one more guitarist, a young talented 17 years
old Danilo Daca Orbovic and from than it performes like a group of 5 on the whole
promotional tour for album ”Najcrnje Noci” (”Darkest Nights”) , that ended with last concert
in Sofia (Bulgary) in february 2012 . At the ent of april of 2012 bend entered in studio
to work on their second studio album, with the working title
”Vatra u Nama” (”The Fire in Us”) .

BIOGRAFIJA :

Bend Kuga nastao je početkom 2003. godine u Beogradu, sa prvi nastupom
održanim u klubu Holiday jula iste godine U samom startu
Kuga funkcionise kao autorski bend i stvara prve autorke pesme ,
po uzoru na heavy-speed-thrash metal bendove iz 80’-ih godina.
U tom periodu Kuga pokreče stari duh ex-Yu metala
koji je bio nepravedno zapostavljen godinama. Po rečima starijih metalaca ,
Kuga je skoro jedini pravi predstavnik thrash/speed metala
sa tekstovima na srpskom ,grupa koja je prva a mozda i jedina
nastavila put legendarnih ex-Yu bendova koji su pevali na maternjem jeziku ,
a to su : Heller, Bombarder , Pergament i ostalih koji su prašili 15-ak godina pre Kuge.
U periodu od 2003-2005 bend je promenio gotovo kompletnu postavu
izuzev pevača Bojana Ljiljka , koji i danas najprepoznatljiviji član grupe Kuga .
U tom razdoblju bend je odsvirao veliki broj koncerata u Srbiji
sa domaćim bendovima a iste 2005 i koncert u Beogradu sa francuskim
death metal sastavom Bloody Sign . Kuga je u to vreme dok je gitarista
još bio Nemanja Djordjević ostavila i par različitih snimaka ciji
produkcijski kvaliteti nisu bili zadovoljavajući da bi bili zvanično objavljeni.
Postava Kuge funkcioniše u nepromenjenom sastavu i danas
a počev od 2005 kada je u bend stigao gitarista Marko Zegarac .
Tokom 2006 godine Kuga je nastupila kao predgrupa bendu Tankard
u Beogradu , a krajem iste godine bend snima prvi ozbiljniji material ‘’ Kuga- Live 2006 .
2007. sledi nastup na Exit festivalu kada je Kuga nastupila neposredno ispred
sastava U.D.O., da bi već iduće godine bend snimio promo pesmu
Sile Zla obeležavajući petogodišnjicu rada kada joj je u velikom klubu
Akdemije specijalni gost bio cuveni gitarista Ljubisa Raci
(ex-Bijelo Dugme). Debi album Najcrnje noći snimljen je sredinom
2009. godine u studiju 5 PGP-RTS-a, a komletan mastering
i produkcija zavrseni su 2010 ,a na njegovo izdavanje cekalo sve
do septembra 2011 kada je ostvarena saradnja sa meksičkom
izdavackom kucom Sade Records. Sa pesmom Lost Soul bend
uzima ucesce i u snimanju srpskog visokobudzetnog filma ‘’Crna Zorica’’.
Izlazak albuma prati koncertna promocija i najava spota za numeru Debela žena.
Kuga radi na novim pesmama sa nadom da ce se u blizoj
buducnosti iste naci na drugom albumu grupe .

Sredinom 2011 Kuga nastavlja rad sa još jednim mladim gitaristom
sedamnestogodišnjim Danilom Dačom Orbovićem i od tada nastupa
kao petorka uključujući i promo turneju za album ”Najcrnje Noći”,
koja je završena sa koncertom u Sofiji (Bugarska) u februaru 2012 .
Krajem aprila 2012 bend ulazi u studio i započinje snimanje
svog drugog studijskog albuma, sa radnim nazivom ”Vatra u Nama” .
