Okash is a metal band from Bydgoszcz and Grudziądz. Its beginning dates back to 2009 when several young musicians with a bit of experience decided to form their own musical project. First, they had to build solid line-up which would allow the band to be creative at a really high level. After some time, the primal line-up was completed and until now it has changed only slightly. In the beginning, the band were: Slaw "Grzyb" Grzyb - lead guitar, Marcin "Mały" Małecki - rhythm guitar, Daniel "Bob" Nowakowski - bass, Krzysztof "Maki" Makowski - drums and Robert Krystian Dobros aka Farediul "Borys" Tusdar - vocals. With this line-up, still in 2009, they recorded and released their debut demo entitled "Rise". The recording got positive response from the audience. This allowed the band to play their first bigger gigs, alongside such groups as: None, Mothra, Blues Beatdown, Mr. Light. At that time, Okash were supporting such legends of the Polish heavy scene as TSA or Christ Agony
Boosted by the success of their live acts and a very good response to the first release, Okash started to work in the Dream Factory Studio aka Śmiechu Studio. There, they recorded the first full length album called "In Between", engineered by Śmiechu. The CD was released in October 2010, and was the real proof of the high professional level the band presents. In December of the same year, they followed up with participation in a local contest "Riff Estrada Festiwal". The band got to the finals, playing in front of a jury including experienced musicians, such as Ślimak (Flapjack, Acid Drinkers) and Orion (Behemoth, Vesania, Black River). This was a great success for the young group. After the contest they got the label of "Rockin' hard tour band that sounds totally uncompromisingly".
In the beginning of 2012, "Grzyb" - the lead guitarist - left the band. Within a couple of months he was replaced with Marcin "Cobra" Noryśkiewicz, who previously played with a hard rock metal band Nihil Quest and a metal core group iXioN. Okash are now working on their next LP. However, writing and recording of the new material has been postponed as the result for the recent changes.
