I love music with unpredictable elements. Hailing from St. Petersburg, Russia via Moldova in Eastern Europe, melodic metal artist, KOTR’s single, “Angel-A” is an instrumental fusion of metal, electronic elements, chugging downtempo trance beats, and of course, the melodic guitar riffs that take center stage!


His vast experience playing in various bands in both Russia and Moldova (both full-time member and session), has molded him into the multifaceted artist we see and hear today. 

KOTR on “Angel-A”: “This composition is the result of an interaction between me and the graphic artist, Angelina. Initially, I only had a simple motive on the piano, which sounds at the beginning and in the choruses. When I saw Angelina’s drawing, inspiration came to
me. The future cover art helped me to understand how to develop the composition, what feelings and moods there would be in it. I enthusiastically engaged in composing and recording this track. After Angelina listened to the demo version, the improvements were made, and I am happy to present the result of the joint work to all listeners. I hope you will like it!”
