Hate Forest was a Ukrainian band formed by Roman Saenko, the leading member of Drudkh, Dark Ages, and Blood of Kingu. Thurios joined the band in 1998 after the recording of Scythia. The music is mostly very fast, but occasionally slow, with low, distorted vocals and dark ambient elements (some releases have consisted entirely of dark ambient tracks). The band never gave interviews, never released photos, and held their distance from the black metal scene. Part of the National Socialist black metal scene, their lyrics are about Slavic and Aryan mythology and inspired by H. P. Lovecraft myths and Friedrich Nietzsche works.[1] After Hate Forest disbanded, Saenko focused on Blood of Kingu, a band similar in style but of different inspiration.
