Dekonstruktor - Bio

Dekonstruktor is a trio consisting of Garish (guitars, effects, bass, vocals), Memfis (bass, guitars, noises, vocals), and Mitya DHS (drums, vocals). The band started as the Moon Mistress in 2009 and later changed its name to Dekonstruktor in 2014. The band explores the black void of the human mind and reflects their vision through severe acid metal rhythms.


The band was founded in Moscow, Russia in 2009 under the name The Moon Mistress. In April 2010 the band released a four-track demo – raw and stoned doom with traditional lyrics for the genre. The logo was created by black crystal mind of Alex Held. To the band’s surprise in 2013 Golden Procession from Japan made an offer to release the demo on cassettes and it was done the same year.

After the CD split with Ukrainian Snakerider (2011), released on Pestis Insaniae, owned by Mitya DHS, in the same cave the following year, the Moon Mistress released the debut album Silent Voice Inside. With their first full-length release, the band has truly come of age with 63 minutes of captivating, atmospheric stoner/doom metal that goes way beyond what many listeners were expecting. The album received a good response and was re-released as a double LP via the Swedish label Demonized Records and on cassettes by Nomos Dei. The same 2012 7” split with Old One (US) was out, devoted to psychedelic pioneers of 60-s.

The following year, EP Simla was released on CDr in a limited edition for completely silent minds. In July 2013, the Moon Mistress played in Europe during a 2-weeks tour for the first time.

Somewhere along 2013, hypnotic mechanical konstruktions arose from the depths, and melodious riffs of the previous period stepped away. Accordingly, with new touches and outside experiences, the band changed its name to Dekonstruktor at the beginning of 2014. Under the new name, the hypnotic album Eating the Universe was out in 2014 – pure acid metal, as Dekonstruktor has named itself since then. Heavier than before, with monotonous beats that take the addicts into the red void. This record has a long release history – cassettes by Freak Friendly DIY (allied Ukrainian label, 2014), CDs by Voron NEST/Addicted Label (2017), and finally, cassette re-release by Visceral Circuitry (2018).

In 2015 Fuck Life We Go Further EP was out on tapes by Pestis Insaniae – a banner of black'n'white nihilism: spinning heavy march in the vein of Hellhammer and Amebix in the beginning, combined with mechanical opium contemplation till the end. New visions of Dekonstruktor within the life-death ritual. Addicted Label/Voron NEST made the CD release of Fuck Life.. in 2017. That year was relatively efficient: besides Fuck Life cassette split with Sdoba was self-released, and at the end of the year, Dekonstruktor presented three noisy beats on Kislie Mini: a CD compilation from Moscow-based underground metal/noise/electronic circle. Raw, acid, and freaky bands had created their scene and sound surrounded by technological temples and other abandoned holes of the Russian capital. Also, in March 2015, Mitya DHS and Garish performed as Dekonstruktor in Bangalore, India.

2016-2017 were not as productive for Dekonstruktor recordings as before; the split with Malad, released on tapes by Freak Friendly DIY, was the only one. The band has been preparing their next full-length for two years, and finally, it was released in 2018 by Pestis Insaniae (tapes) and Hymns of Apocalypse (CD).

No Way Back is the next level of hospitality.

Flesh/ flash/ filth


Lives in Ukraine '17/18 cassette, designed as a tribute to legendary metal bootlegs from 90-s, was released in 2019.

The Moon Mistress – Silent Voice Inside was re-released By Addicted Label on CDs and cassettes in February 2020.

Aesthetic Death released the split with Megalith Levitation in the summer of 2020 – created by titans of Megalith Levitation and Dekonstruktor, the Androgyne is floating up from the black coldness.

After a long silence, Death Beat – the new monument from Dekonstruktor is out on 16 February 2024. Starting with the oppressive wall of metal audio violence, the album turns into a minimalist, industrial trance and concludes with a hypnotic contemplation of death. Harsh doom sounding combined with deep perforations into electronic territories.
