Desmodium & Fatum Aeternum rock bands are kicking off the first weekend of 2017!
On the first Friday of 2017, 2 rock bands will share the stage in Levontin 7 club in Tel-Aviv and bring an unforgettable experience of unique rock music – Desmodium is based on medieval esthetics, including authentic poetry and instruments. Fatum Aeternum – the veterans of gothic live music in Israel presenting a theatrical and highly emotional show to bring out the deepest, sincerest and overwhelming emotions we all have.
DESMODIUM is an Israeli hard-folk band originating from Beersheba.
The band's musical style combines hard-rock with medieval traditional songs in a variety of languages, including Gaelic, English, Old Swedish, Breton, Occitan, Savo Finnish, Latin and Old & Middle High German, blending the sound of the standard rock instruments with historical instruments (such as bagpipes, irish whistle, flute).
In 2013, Eric and Miri Gershkovich launched a musical project based upon Carmina Burana, a medieval collection of poetry. Later, they were joined by Dmitry Natanel, Michael Volinskiy, Alex Vainer and Lev Etin, thus completing the lineup. The band was titled DESMODIUM after a "dancing" flowering plant, sometimes called tick-trefoil or tick clover.

Erik Gershkovich - bagpipes, percussions, back-vocal
Dmitriy Netanel - guitars, back-vocal

Fatum Aeternum is the most long-living gothic/dark art project in Israel, first formed in 2006 playing medieval and renaissance music in metal arrangements.
For long 8 years the band went through exhausting and somewhat devastating search for stylistic identity, going from darkwave to cabaret, from cabaret to swing and jazz and back to rock/metal. Throughout the years the band managed to accumulate a small but loyal and highly appreciated audience in Israel and beyond.
