Ektomorf is one of the most appreciated metal bands in Hungary, with a strong style, resulting from the merging of metal trash with influences from the Gypsy folklore. Established by Zoltán Farkas in the early 1990s, the band became more and more known on the Hungarian musical scene in 1998, crossing the border when signing the first international contract.
The strong accents of thrash metal, combined with hardcore elements and the musicality of traditional Gypsy style, brought the band the international success and collaboration with the renowned Nuclear Blast German record label that put its mark on albums like Destroy, Instinct, Outcast “. In 2010, Ektomorf launches “Redemption” under a new label (AFM Records), an energetic album featuring social criticism and human soul or hate themes. Then came materials such as “The Acoustic”, “Black Flag” that brings a more sophisticated sound or “Retribution”, an intense album, well received by fans and critical criticism. In 2017, the band released “Warpath,” a CD / DVD featuring the full-featured live show at the Wacken Open Air 2016, alongside a documentary of “behind the scenes” of their touring life, titled ” Live And Life On The Road. “
The band’s musical uplift continued, with Ektomorf becoming a regular presence at some of Europe’s biggest festivals, such as Wacken Open Air, Full Force, Sziget Festival or Rock Am Ring.
