Kren started as Eldiarn, a Russian folk-metalband which released a debut-album ‘Kaban’ey tropoy’ in 2013.
They made a slight change of style, a bit less ‘alcohol’ in the music, but there are remaining a lot of folk-elements. With this change of sound the second album ‘Zima’ was released.
Later the band changed their name to Horseradish, sadly this meant a change of style as well.
But fortunately with another change of name the folk came back in their music. Since 2018 the band is known as Khren, under which name they planned an album in autumn the same year.
