Reka is the colloborative band from different parts of the world. We are not writers, poets or artists... We feel that we need to share our feelings and emotions with people and music helps us to to do that. We believe that it's important to make music intuitive, not to play some specific genre. This way of creation as well as support the independent DIY scene is the best way to open up the soul for the deepest music that could be born.

AA80. In The Hearts Of Emperors / Reka - Split LP
IN THE HEARTS OF EMPERORS from Sweden founded in 2009 is a 4-piece band from Nyköping/Sweden. Who perfectly combine different elements from doom, sludge & post-rock and give it a special touch by the emotional vocals and long instrumental-parts. A band with much potential in the footsteps of Cult Of Luna & Envy.
REKA from Moscow, Russia play excellent atmospheric sludgey hardcore. All parts feel very well placed with no dull moments or filler, every track is heavy and memorable, perfect build ups with satisfying crushing payoffs. Its a really enjoyable, intense album. The band features the vocalist from CELESTE, several members of OPTIMUS PRIME and FORTUNAE VERBERA. The sound is heavy and has a dirty sludgey touch. Absolutely recommandable for fans of CELESTE and (faster) AMEN RA.
