The Korea is a Russian band from St. Petersburg mixing different styles of heavy music such as mathcore/alternative metal.

2) Korea was formed in Stockholm 2003 by Mikael ( vocals) and Dennis Ernstén (drums) and Mikael Raymond (guitars). Soon they found Robert Bunke (bass) to complete the band.
In 2003 the American producer Blake Althen contacted the band and together they produced a self titled EP. The band started to play the clubs of Stockholm and southern Sweden during the next couple of years.
Due to different views of the future sound of korea, the band parted ways with Blake Althen in 2005.
In 2006 the band begun to shape a new heavy sound which reached the attention of Vici Solum productions that signed the band in 2008.
koreas new sound can be described as a journey in different music styles with a Swedish melancholic spine. In essence, a beautiful array of harmonies and melodies, combined with a heavy rhythmic section, all tighted together with silky smooth vocals.
Influences can be traced to acts like Carpark North, Radiohead, A Perfect Circle, Tool, NIN and Depeche Mode.
All song writing is done collectively, where every member contributes and further develops presented ideas. This is one of the major factors of the multifaceted sound which can be experienced on the new CD titled "For The Present Purpose".
