Andaja was founded in 2002. Andaja - is the ancient Lithuanian deity of fate, fear, swamps, wetlands and marshes. This name also reflects the sounds and music produced by the band - primitively elemental, mythical. The axis of their creation is the natural Baltic world-view, - their songs are filled with awe of Nature, their nation, heroic deeds of their ancients and with hatred for the spiritless ideology of the modern times. In short it can be defined as Baltic Black metal. In 2006 Andaja have released their debut album "Iš atminties" featuring 7 Baltic Black metal tracks.
