ONATRA is a modern symphonic metal band, founded in July 2009 in Lviv, Ukraine. At that time the band consisted of Iryna Vitiv (vocals), Khrystyna Solyha (keys), Vasyl Turchyn (guitars), Victor Shpyrka (guitars), Sergiy Vladarsky (bass), Marta Medler (drums). The band was formed to play on tribute to In Flames, which was put off and finally cancelled. After that they decided to play their own music, composed by Sergiy. In September 2009 Khrystyna left ONATRA, because of the studies and the band decided to use playback instead of looking for a new keyboard of the same level. The musicians worked hard upon their techniques.
In March 2010 ONATRA had their first performance as a contestant in competition among young Lviv bands called Level Up! Their songs (Chaos Theory, Fate Symphony, For Your Soul) and roses show had a great success. The band collected the largest number of audience votes and took sixth place from twenty five. In April 2010 ONATRA gave their second performance in underground club Pogulyanka for a small number of people.
In May 2010 ONATRA was disbanded. During a longtime search for new musicians Marta studies the details of orchestral music composing. She tries to compose heavy orchestrals and in summer 2010 ONATRA records their new demo songs Dance With The Wind and Touch Of Emptiness.
In July 2011 the bassist Dima Dvuhroshev joined the band and Sergiy started to play the guitar. ONATRA was reactivated with a change in sound. The band started to work upon the new material and recording the debut promotional release.
In January 2012 came out the internet release For Your Soul [EP], which included three songs: For Your Soul, With You and Shadows' Steps.
