Short Bio: Die Entweihung (Desecration (German)) – one man band, formed in May 2007, by Denis Tereschenko (first years performed as Herr Entweiherr), in the northern part of Israel, three years after moving to Israel from Belarus (Vitebsk). Beginning as a raw Black Metal project, Die Entweihung, already on the second album embarks on all sorts of experiments relating to all aspects of creativity. Having passed for almost 10 years through the different, both stylistic and sound changes, Die Entweihung releases “Neverending Terrorism” in 2015, an album as far removed from Black Metal; now the style of the project can be identified as Blackened Heavy Metal, with the lyrics about the surrounding sad reality. The newest conceptual “Strict Regime Country” is continuing the way of the three previous albums, presenting to the listener eclectic mixing such styles like Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal, Doom Metal, Prog Rock with rich vocal diversity (male growling/screaming, female growling/clean vocals) and lot of Middle-Eastern melodies.
The album is dedicated to Denis’ native Belarus, and all the album titles and lyrics are based mostly on the events that happened in 2020-2021 in Belarus (False elections, largest protests in the country’s history, lot of people were imprisoned or forced to run from Belarus).
