The band was created in Moscow in 2013. Doctor (drums) and Dietrich (guitar) organized a group with
ironic name – POKERFACE. The band got over some changes of musicians,but it has never stopped
to work intensively in studio and on stage and finally had crystallized its unique style.

POKERFACE shared the stage with such famous European bands as Sodom, Onkel Tom, Sister Sin Knorkator.

In 2014, the band released their first EP “Terror is the law” on the label “Irond / Molot”
with female vocalist Delirium Tremens.
In September 2014, Dmitry (bass) joined the team. After a number of serious disagreements
with the guitarist Dietrich, the band made a decision that he should leave the group.

Soon POKERFACE found a new guitarist Maniac and finally had focused on its studio and concert
activities. Everyone has idols and POKERFACE – is not an exception.

The band is looking up to such stars of American and German thrash metal, as Slayer, Testament,
Sodom, Kreator. The music with speed heavy riffs, English lyrics and brutal vocals - this is
the very style,which symbolizes real old school thrash metal.

In the Spring of 2015, POKERFACE arranged Russian tour with Brazilian icon Sepultura to
support the EP “Terror is the law”. Right after the Summer tour with Overkill, Claustrofobia,
Children of Bodom and Vader, the band presented the internet single “Kingdom of Hate”.

At the beginning of Autumn 2015 POKERFACE released the debut album “Divide And Rule”, which
was supported during Global Technocratic Balkan Tour with Polish band Thy Disease in October 2015.

After that the band played some more concertson the same stage with Megadeth, Kreator and Infected Rain.

At the end of the year Nick (guitar) made up his mind to leave the lineup, though he stayed as a
songwriter. Vadim Whitevad took his place and then POKERFACE played several shows in Russia with
Death DTA, Sadist and Thy Disease. In the Spring of 2016 the band arranged the
“Step into Inferno tour” which took place in Poland, Serbia, Croatia, Romania and Hungary.

Unfortunately, for some reasons the frontwoman Delirium couldn’t join the trip, so during
the tour Alexandra LadyOwl took her place, the place of the lead vocal for the POKERFACE.

After the tour was finished, the band decided to make some more changes in the lineup: Xen Ritter
replaced Maniac on guitar and Alexandra LadyOwl became the frontwoman. Now POKERFACE are working
on their third album and already confirmed for METAL CROWD open air in Belarus.
