Formed in formed in 2005 by L.F., this band has to-date had quite the busy career. 3 albums have been thus far released – Vrajda demo (2005), Diktatura EP 2007, and Vlast (2011) – with a fourth, Hakmarrja, due out in late October 2014 via legendary label Avantgarde Music, the band’s new home. The music is intense and as the band puts it, “N.K.V.D.’s music is based on history, power and oppression.”
