UKĆ is a one-man project founded by Łukasz “Icanraz” Sarnacki and was started in 2017 in Białystok, Poland. Łukasz is known for his work with bands such as Corruption, Christ Agony, Devilish Impressions, Hermh, Abused Majesty, Virgin Snatch, Darzamat and Voidfire.
UKĆ is a solo project in the term’s whole meaning because Łukasz is responsible for all instruments (vocals, drums, guitars, bass, keyboards), compositions, lyrics and production. The first official release was the EP “Przemijanie“, released on 30 November 2022, followed by the Polish version of the first full-length album “Coming Out” on 17 April 2023.
With a desire to break boundaries and reach different audiences, UKĆ prepared an English version of the debut album, “Coming Out“, which will be released digitally on 18 August 2023.
About the album, Icanraz says: “The album contains eight extensive compositions filled to the brim with emotions and very personal lyrics. It’s atmospheric metal with a rock flair where stylistic boundaries seem non-existent. This music is aimed at open-minded people and is my absolute artistic coming out. It was the first time I stepped out of my comfort zone and did something of this magnitude.”
Shortly after the release of the mini-album “Przemijanie” Łukasz received the first proposals to present UKĆ live. Now UKĆ is a one-man studio project, but a 4-person band when performing live: Icanraz on vocals and guitar, Łukasz Bielemuk on guitar, Mateusz Demaniuk on bass and Paweł Staniszczak on drums.
