OGOTAY is a new, promising group of musicians associated with Tri-City (Poland) music scene. At the beginning of 2011 Artur “Gufi” Piotrowski (Mess Age) and Andrzej “Pieczar” Peszel (Fulcrum) have started a joint attempt to create several songs. Finally 10 compositions were created quickly together with Marcin “SVierszcz” Swierczynski (Yattering, Sainc) who supported Gifu and Pieczara. In September the band finishes working on promotional material and starts working with Szymon “Simon” Andryszczak (Pandemonium) on drums. The debut full length was recorded and released April 2012.

Shortly after OGOTAY started working on the second full length “Dead God’s Prophet”.

OGOTAY plays brutal and technical old fashioned death metal in the vein of MORBID ANGEL, IMMOLATION and the likes.
