Kolovorot, the cult Ukrainian underground heavy metal merchandise shop which is situated in historical part of Kharkiv, the country’s second-largest city, was heavily damaged during a barrage of Russian air and rocket attacks earlier this week.
The organizers of Ukraine’s Metal East Nove Kolo heavy metal festival shared photos of the destruction at the store and included the following message: “Here is Kolovorot shop in Kharkiv. The cult Ukrainian place of underground merch, the place from which Metal East: Nove Kolo is mostly organized. It is the very small part of the results of Russian invasion in Ukraine.
“We are all in Ukraine now. We continue to fight for our land.
“We ask bands which have played at our festival, bands with which we have cooperated via Musical Hall/Kolovorot, all the customers and fans to spread the word and to help stop war in Ukraine.
“We will definitely win. And then we will see you all at Metal East: Nove Kolo and in the renewed Kolovorot.”
