We are Swarm! We used to be the guitar players for California's Jet Black Horror (myspace.com/jetblackhorror | facebook.com/jetblackhorror) from 2005 - 2011, which gave us the opportunity to experience years of touring, recording and countless shows — though years of lineup changes with drummers going on to more successful endeavors (Oh, Sleeper and Vital Remains) put us on hiatus for a little over a year.
The Korea band was formed in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, in 2003. Preparing the material for their records the band rehearsed and performed a lot. Their first full-length release "On The Broken Wings" was presented in March 2006. Later the band made the first video for their track "The Poles". The Korea's second album "The Pulse" was released in October 2007. The band had several big tours supporting the album in Russia and CIS countries.
After a long creative break the band recorded a single called "The Sandman" which was released online on April 9th, 2010. In a while the band made their decision to change the name, sound and stylistic concept. That led to the change of the lead vocals.
In summer 2011 The Korea got into the studio to record their third long-play "The Chariots Of The Gods". On November 19th the band presented their new single and music video "The Chaos Theory".
The album "The Chariots Of The Gods" was released on January 15, 2012 on the American label Rogue Records. In the winter of that year, guitarists Eugene Potekhin and Alexander Kuznetsov became endorsers of Lepsky Guitars.
On March 25, 2013 the group planned a new release named Saturnus. New EP consists of 3 tracks in Russian and in English both. On April 1, The Korea goes to Revenge Of The Universe Tour 2013.
On personal reasons the vocalist Ilya Sannikov leaves the band. Instead, there comes a new member - Eugene Zhukov. New lineup team prepares to record a new single and an album.
