Kraków is one of the largest and oldest cities in Poland. It has the status of a district-level city, and is the capital of the region of Lesser Poland and the Lesser Poland Voivodeship. The band Taraban is from Kraków and immerse yourself in the refreshing music which springs from the cracks in old rock. Rinse your soul with the sound of How The East Was Lost – a debut LP by psychedelic hard-rockers Taraban.
Recorded at Monochrom Studio by Satanic Audio’s Haldor Grunberg (Behemoth, Belzebong, Dopelord), the album features Daniel Suder on bass guitar and vocals, Maciej Trojanowski on electric guitar and Kris Gonda on the drums.
If the good old rock is dead, it drowned in How The East Was Lost. There are no shallow ends here – join us for a 47-minute dive into the bottomless body of music. Taraban is a 7-letters word and this is a 7-track journey into the true heart of Europe’s East. The first stop is the eerie Club Dragon in the belly of the closed hotel and the yellow sands of the Bledowska Desert military area, where The Plague music video was shot and which will promote the coming of How The East Was Lost.

Bert Banane states on Bnadcamp: «What a great band. Got me their new album and I’m totally blown away. First, because the music is a real treat for the ears for all friends of cultivated doom- and stoner rocks and second, because such tight bands just need to be supported. If somebody wants to get rid of his pocket money without any complications, this would be a great opportunity! Favorite track: Backseat Driver».
180g, Stereo, 33 RPM, gatefold, 250 x black vinyl, 50 x deep green translucent vinyl Band quote: We did our thing, our way and it’s a great feeling to be able to finally share it in the sacred form of a heavy, black disc. It contains a journey, a turbulent venture into the realm of each other’s expectations and needs. We pulled through. Now we sell tickets to the show. Listen to our story, about how the East was lost and how we lived to tell the tale.
