Hayko Cepkin Essentials

Hayko Cepkin Essentials

Istanbul-born composer and vocalist Hayko Cepkin is an unabashed heavy metal maven, and may be one of the most famed artistic representatives of Armenian-origin Turks today. He’s armed with a terrifying death growl—as heard on stand-out tracks like “Hayvaaağ2n” and “Bertaraf Et”—and “Oluyorum” demonstrates that he’s a committed advocate of Arabesque rock. Blending local traditions with modern-day sensibilities, Cepkin’s anguished lyrics spill into orchestral melodies in unexpectedly organic ways.
