Teren is a folk metal band from Kropyvnytskyi, Ukraine. The band consists of former members of the band Kult, but has a completely different approach to creating music. As the band states, Teren lyrics are based on ancient Slavic legends and beliefs, and the music uses traditional folk motive combined with heavy metal riffs. The band is looking forward to present to as many people as possible the fact that Slavic folk metal is very powerful, very versatile, and ultimately beautiful.
