“Their performance is passionate and filled with pure, raw emotions, and tremendous energy, connecting directly to our instincts and sense of rhythm, making it dance and pulsate as it gets filled with all that energy. And I think that their music increases libido,”’ observer wrote.

Drum Ecstasy was formed on the wave of rave in 1992 and has grown out from art group of avant-garde artists, photographers and musicians.

“This is the music of Drum Ecstasy, three drummers and a bass player in an onslaught of brutal syncopation that they call ‘white voodoo disco’,” The Wire wrote.

Drum Ecstasy skilfully mixes various styles of electronic and rock music: Industrial, Noise-Rock, Drum’n’Bass, Tech-House, Techno… It looks fresh and extreme as an experiment or avant-garde should be. Sound effects generated by Drum Ecstasy with a power saw, drills, or even a vibrator, fit organically into the aesthetics of a modern industrial performance. The band denies any labels of its style.

Every Drum Ecstasy show is unique, wherever and in whatever form it has occurred. The bandmates’ energy fits harmoniously into the context of any venue.
The musicians’ free handling of its stylistic diversity makes the band popular in different kinds of live performances.

During its 20-years-long success, the band was engaged in hundreds of musical events in many European countries.
Drum Ecstasy opened the shows of Robert Plant & Strange Sensation, DubFx, The Prodigy, Marilyn Manson, Brutto.
Drum Ecstasy collaborated with artists of different genres, creating unique projects with Oleg Olovnikov (classical cellist), Ethno Trio Troitsa (world music), Dror Feiler (avant-garde saxophonist), Lokomotiv Koncret, et. al.
The band has been involved in City Day festivities in Moscow, Kaunas, Surgut and Minsk.

You can find the band’s creations in the films Night Watch, Day Watch, Dark World, et al.
Drum Ecstasy’s music has been used in countless TV shows, ads, art installations, and radio jingles.
Drum Ecstasy’s soundtracks are in contemporary dance project Where the Water Flows Up staged by Swedish choreographer Sibrig Dokter.

The band was invited to open the auto shows and car dealerships of Volkswagen, Mazda, AUDI, Skoda, MAN, Nissan, Renault, sport events such as Red Bull X-Fighters, NHL exhibition games, and the Prometheus International Stunt Festival.
Drum Ecstasy has been involved in advertising projects and presentations for brands such as Wargaming, Microsoft, Lucky Strike, Pall Mall, Orbit, Castrol, Gallina Blanca, Revlon, Orange, and Tyumen Oil Company.

While sharing the stage with other artists, Drum Ecstasy is surprisingly mobile: the musicians start their show within 3 minutes after coming up on the stage and leave it just the same. Such technical mobility is the result of band’s wealth of great music events experience.

Mass media describe Drum Ecstasy as the “star of the underground music scene in Belarus. Their live shows fuse pure energy with musical abstraction.”
The band was recognized as the best performer of dance music in the country by club’s managers in Belarus.
Getting to Drum Ecstasy’s show the concertgoers become a part of the action similar to the tantric dance of Zion Dance Party from The Matrix Reloaded film scene.
Once has brought the house down, Drum Ecstasy will never break up with this delight.

Drum Ecstasy is a unique musical project, an unprecedented power of sound defined by the band's compositions and instruments. Four musicians playing steel-shelled drums create a sound that explodes the audience right from the very first beats.

Drum Ecstasy is a live band from Belarus that plays heavy dance music using various bass guitar sounds, supported by a massive background of three and more drummers. This time, to commemorate 21 years after the Chernobyl-disaster, Drum Ecstasy beats on scrap-metal from Belarus' Nuclear Junkyard! Banging the Chernobyl-drums, dawai! Check this out!

Drum Ecstasy are one of the stars of the underground music scene in Belarus. ...Their live shows fuse pure energy with musical abstraction.

This is the music of Drum Ectasy, three drummers and bassist in an onslaught of brutal syncopation that they call “white vodoo disco”.

This unique atmosphere of half-freedoms and cultural clashes, in the last 10 years, has become a breeding ground of creativity for artists and musicians struggling to express themselves. Out of Minsk comes Drum Ecstasy, a fierce and fiery combination of wild percussion and freaky effects. Featuring three drummers and one bassist, the band fuses a kind of future primitivism with social restlessness into a driving, improvisational sound full of kinetic energy.
