White Ward is a band from Odessa, Ukraine performing intense, deviant music with the shade of noir. Formed in 2012 and taking roots in raw depressive black metal the band has expounded its boundaries taking inspiration from noir and neo-noir atmosphere, the books by H.P. Lovecraft and Iain M. Banks. All bands’ early recordings were included in the Origins compilation released in 2016. Exploring themes of borderline death states, deviant afterlife worlds and strange mental disorders, White Ward’s sounding varies from instrumental jazz to black, deep and existential despair. After recording the first full-length album Futility Report White Ward are signed to Debemur Morti Productions, ready to go much further on their deviant sonic journey.
