The band was formed in 2014. The combination of the band’s looks, sound and video projected on the stage helps to create a unique atmosphere of a macabre play, alluding to Wild West stories or ancient horror tales of ghosts, demons and the walking dead. The members of ZWYNTAR will often jokingly (or probably not) refer to their music as ‘gospel witch house’.
Early in 2016 the official video for ZWYNTAR’s song "Mother’s Knife" appeared on the band’s YouTube channel and soon had nearly 50,000 views. In the same time, their debut EP 'Гріх' (The Sin) has been well-recieved, especially in the local stage.
ZWYNTAR is a transcription for a ukrainian word meaning 'Graveyard'.
