Unveiling Darkness: “Coming Out – Love & Hate Diaries” by UKĆ

Embark on a soul-stirring odyssey into the profound realms of progressive black metal with “Coming Out – Love & Hate Diaries” the jewel case CD release from Theogonia Records. Available from February 16, 2024, this 52-minute work of art is the haunting creation of UKĆ, a one-man progressive black metal project emerging from the enigmatic landscapes of Białystok, Poland.

Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki, a luminary in metal circles for his contributions to bands like Corruption, Christ Agony, and Devilish Impressions, embarked on the solitary journey of UKĆ in 2017. This solo project is a testament to his unparalleled musical prowess and profound creativity, where every instrument—from vocals and drums to guitars, bass, and keyboards—is masterfully wielded by a singular artist.

As Theogonia Records is thrilled to announce this addition to our family of darkness and intensity, “Coming Out – Love & Hate Diaries” transcends mere musical composition. The enigmatic mastermind behind UKĆ, Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki, has taken the metal world by storm, weaving a narrative that goes beyond sound.

The sonic evolution of UKĆ began with the tantalizing EP “Przemijanie” on November 30, 2022, offering a glimpse into the depths of Łukasz’s musical psyche. Following this success, the Polish version of the debut full-length album, “Coming Out,” was unveiled on April 17, 2023.

However, the story doesn’t culminate here. Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki, a visionary artist hungry to push boundaries, meticulously crafted the English version of “Coming Out” entitled “Coming Out – Love & Hate Diaries.” This transformative masterpiece, aimed at open minds, breaks stylistic boundaries, fusing progressive metal with a rock flair and a black metal aura.

The album unfolds with emotive tales woven into every note. “King For A Day…” leads the journey, followed by the poignant “Fading Away“. “Uncertainty” introduces a collision of genres, while “Deaf Eyes” unveils a sonic tapestry of darkness. “To The Fall” continues the narrative, leading to the haunting echoes of “Why” and the introspective depths of “Withering“. The album concludes with “…Fool For A Lifetime“, leaving listeners in contemplative awe.

Speaking about the album, Icanraz shares, “The album contains 8 extensive compositions filled to the brim with emotions and very personal lyrics. It’s progressive metal with a rock flair and black metal aura where stylistic boundaries seem to be non-existent. This music is aimed at people with open minds and is my absolute artistic coming out. It was the first time I stepped out of my comfort zone and did something of this magnitude”.
