|Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki – All instruments and vocals|
Theogonia Records is thrilled to announce the latest addition to our family of darkness and intensity. UKĆ, a one-man progressive black metal project hailing from Białystok, Poland, is now part of the Theogonia family. The enigmatic mastermind behind UKĆ, Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki, has taken the metal world by storm with his unparalleled musical prowess and profound creativity.
Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki, a name well-versed in the metal circles for his contributions to bands like Corruption, Christ Agony, Devilish Impressions, Hermh, Abused Majesty, Virgin Snatch, Darzamat, Voidfire, embarked on this solitary journey in 2017. UKĆ is a solo project in the truest sense, as Łukasz single-handedly wields every instrument – from vocals and drums to guitars, bass, and keyboards. His musical odyssey has been a deeply personal and introspective one.
UKĆ’s sonic evolution began with the release of the EP “Przemijanie” on November 30, 2022, a tantalizing glimpse into the depths of Łukasz’s musical psyche. Following its success, Łukasz unveiled the Polish version of his debut full-length album, “Coming Out“, on April 17, 2023.
However, the story doesn’t end here. Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki, a visionary artist with a hunger to push boundaries and expand his reach, has meticulously crafted an English version of “Coming Out” entitled “Coming Out – Love & Hate Diaries“. This transformative masterpiece is set to be unleashed upon the world by Theogonia Records on February 16, 2024.
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.“
The journey of UKĆ extends beyond the studio, as Łukasz has received numerous invitations to take his music to the live stage. While UKĆ remains a one-man studio project, it transforms into a powerful quartet during electrifying live performances. Witness Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki on vocals and guitar, Łukasz Bielemuk on guitar, Mateusz Demaniuk on bass, and Paweł Staniszczak on drums, as they breathe life into the mesmerizing compositions of UKĆ.
As Theogonia Records, we are honored to stand alongside Icanraz on this awe-inspiring musical journey. The addition of UKĆ to our roster marks a momentous occasion, and we invite you to join us in embracing the boundless creativity and uncharted territories that this visionary artist explores.
