GRAI offer an excellent Russian folk / pagan metal from the eastern Russian Republic of Tatarstan. GRAI was formed in 2005 and was influenced by Skyforger, Korpiklaani, Cruachan, Svarga and Alkonost. GRAI performs epic folk metal with beautiful female vocals and nice vocal harmonies. The authentic instruments they use give a special Russian taste to their music.

Between February and August 2007, the band recorded a demo EP entitled “Ot Istoka”( From the Source), which included 4 compositions: The Birch, Winter, The Winds, The Source.

The band’s first LP – “Полынь-Трава” (“The Sagebrush”), 2009, consisted of 9 compositions. The album is permeated with the spirit of ancient times, each song’s reflected in a striking image.

In 2010, the band began recording the second LP consisting of 10 tracks. At that time the band hired Irina Zybina as the third vocalist, who participated in recording one of the Alkonost’s albums as folk – vocalist. Irina’s beautiful powerful voice blended with the band repertoire perfectly. On 27 September, their new album "О Земле Родной"('Our native land') came out. The album included 10 conceptual tracks, which create remarkably profound images forming the musical unity in the familiar style of the band. It is a distinctive synthesis of traditional pagan metal elements based on the rhythms and the atmosphere of traditional Russian folk-rock. In this synthesis the flute-sounds are interwoven with solo-guitar play against the dynamic rhythm-section. Hard imposing fragments being intensified by the bagpipes sounds are enriched by appeasing keyboard passages. But the main piquancy of new songs is lace-like well-balanced vocal trio of the band-singers.

During 2012 and 2103, the band participated in many concerts and festivals.
2014 saw the release of their third album Млада (Mlada) and of the compilation In The Arms Of Mara.

In 2017, the band visited Bulgaria for the first time. On December 1, 2017 the fourth album of the band "Ashes" was released.
