Kypck – pronounced Kursk – is a Finnish doom metal band with Russian vocals and themes, active since 2007. The band members are guitarist Sami Lopakka (Sentenced, Northern Tribe), drummer and producer Hiili Hiilesmaa, vocalist Erkki Seppänen (Tuiran Miliisi, Dreamtale), and bassist Jaakko Ylä-Rautio (The Skreppers). They themselves call their music the fastest Russian doom metal from Finland. Kypck's debut album, Cherno, was released in 2008; since then they have released four more, the last of which, Prestupleniya protiv chelovechestva (Crimes Against Humanity), was released in 2023; the group announced its breakup after its release, citing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. They've planned a farewell tour entitled This Is Our Red Line for early 2024.
The show will be opened by Warsaw's Tankograd. Active since 2015, they play depressing doom metal about war, totalitarian oppression and ruined cities. The lineup includes members of bands like Major Kong and Dopelord. In 2017, they debuted with the EP Mir; since then they have released two albums, Totalitarian (2019) and Klęska (2021).
