Kruk reveal the artwork and tracklist of their new live release "Beyond Live"

On the 18th of April, at the studio of Radio Katowice, the hard rock band Kruk played a very special concert. With the auditorium packed tight, the band performed a two-hour-plus set, which included their greatest hits as well as a couple of interesting surprises, such as Black Sabbath's "Heaven & Hell" and Deep Purple's "When a Blind Man Cries" and "Burn". The band was accompanied on stage by wonderful guest musicians: Piotr Luczyk (Kat), Grzegorz Kupczyk (CETI, Turbo), and, for the grand finale, Józef Skrzek from SBB. Another surprise was an additional acoustic set prepared by the band, presenting Kruk's songs in unique arrangements.
The entire concert was filmed and recorded for the purposes of a CD and DVD album "Beyond Live", which will be released in late autumn. Check out the trailer for the CD/DVD HERE.
Today the band reveal the cover artwork and tracklist of "Beyond Live".

The band was formed in 2001 by Piotr Brzychcy and Krzysztof Walczyk. The band members were heavily inspired by Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep and it was these influences that shaped Kruk's music, placing it within a classic rock framework. In 2006 Kruk recorded the album "Memories" with Grzegorz Kupczyk (Ceti's & ex-Turbo's vocalist). The album was a tribute to the aforementioned bands. In the next years, Kruk followed their own path and managed to forge their own sound. Their proper debut album entitled "Before He'll Kill You", released in 2009, was well received both by media and by music fans. The year 2011 marked the release of their second studio album. Doogie White (ex.Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tank)  made guest appearance on "It Will Not Come Back". The album was enthusiastically reviewed both in Poland and overseas. Kruk supported such legends of rock as Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, Graham Bonnet, ex-singer from Rainbow, and Michael Schenker Group. In 2012 Kruk released the album "Be3". "Before", the band's most recent studio album, was released in June 2014. The band's fourth full-length release should be interesting for fans of such big artists as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and DIO. The album includes a bonus DVD featuring additional material: live show from Spodek Hall, Katowice from February 2014 when Kruk supported the legendary band Deep Purple, interviews, documentary and studio report.
