Neko Nine’s post-rock / post-metal aesthetics are made of peaceful melodies & distorted harsh guitars, atmospheric sound space and nasty drum beats. Their music also contains unique results of the experimentation of new possibilities for post-rock sounds.
The band is from Yaroslavl which is a city and the administrative center of Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia, located 250 kilometers northeast of Moscow. The historic part of the city, a World Heritage Site, is located at the confluence of the Volga and the Kotorosl Rivers.
Russian band was started by Seva Shaposhnikov in 2009 as an one man project. After three years of composing and recording process he decided that the project may not go on functioning like this in the future. It became a four piece band in December, 2011: Seva Shaposhnikov (guitar, vocals, samples), Andrey Kuznetsov (bass), Roman Veselov (guitar), Aleksandr Danilevsky (drums).
