Baltavar, formed in 2018, began writing their own style of to-the-point Bulgarian groove thrash metal. The title, Baltavar, derives power and confidence from the elder Bulgarian khans. Baltavar began with only expectations of having fun playing cover songs, but soon grew to a much more serious endeavor. With the band's collective ambition to share their music with the world, Baltavar recorded their debut album “Nuclear people” in Renewsound with producer Jivko Daskalov. The album carried a throwback touch from the early days of heavy metal.
After performances at Shumen Rock Fest and HMC Festival in Bulgaria, Baltavar received features on MetalHanger10.com and TheOtherSideZine.com. Now, hitting their creative stride, Baltavar is currently recording the upcoming full-length album "Dark Science''. Combining dark death metal, groove and old-school thrash, Baltavar aspires to create distinctive artistic identity of their own. With the ambient darkness surrounding the band, the future is looking bright for Baltavar.
