Hok-Key is vivid representative of the Belarusian metal scene with a 20-year history, which marked its presence in the release of 4 full-length albums and numerous singles and EP.

Hok-Key has taken the path from the original comedy metal and inventing texts directly to its present form - philosophical texts and regular musical and sound experiments, but not beyond the heavy, melodic, metal with folk influences(mainly in the Belarusian language).

The band is broadcasted on radio stations, actively participates in various festivals and concerts both at home and abroad (Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Austria), including such as "Our Grunwald", "Kupalskae Cola», METAL CROWD Open Air, Rock Festival "Safonii" International Bike Festival "MOTO BLOW", Freedom Festival. At the end of September - beginning of October 2015 the group made a bright musical tour to Europe - «Thunder and Lightning European Tour».

Live performances of the group are remarkable not only with musical and sound quality, but also with the drive and heartfelt lyricism combined with beautiful and unusual sounds of violin. Musicians are always convincing and honest in their work and feel the power of authenticity, genuineness of feelings and emotions, the band really believes in its songs and this belief infects and inspires!
