The "Holod" was formed in late 2008 in Voronezh in Russia. The style of the band includes such genres as metalcore (with little influence of progressive metal) and deathcore. The first concert took place in early 2009. In the autumn of this year Holod presented first demo recording. Band released full album and two singles in the last four years of its existence. Contracts were signed with music labels such as ITCHY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT (US, LA) and HEADXPLODE RECORDS (RU / US). They contributed to promote LP "Nachalo" 2011 in some degree. Band played over 50 concerts in more than 20 cities in the CIS. "Every show - the show is first and foremost. If you don't like this life-affirming phrase,your should stand against a wall and focus on music... Guys in the middle of the hall will be dismantled at all." The single "Atlantis" from the forthcoming second album was warmly received to record their second LP, take part in a big open air festival MHM'2012 and go to their first European tour.
