Since 2015, he records and releases under the names 543, Liteplo or Morwan. The last alias is his best known. The debut Ubila mogila (She killed a grave) from 2019 opened him a pathway from Kyiv underground and his second album Zola-Zemlya (Earth-ash) came out under the renowned American brand Feel It Records. Here, Morwan mixes cold rhythms, curt riffs inspired by Arabic motifs and gloomy ritual atmosphere with Bauhaus-like vampiric vocals. “The nature in songs acts as a fundamental force, a given from which you cannot escape. With the help of metaphors associated specifically with nature I tell about some of my personal experiences and stories,” explains Ashtaui/Morwan. Deservedly, the record was met with excited reviews. “It is an entirely original, impressive album,” wrote the Maximum Underground magazine regarding Zola-Zemlya. After Russian aggression twards Ukraine, Ashtanui who lived in Irpiňa, Kyiv, packed up and moved to Berlin where he returned to music after a short pause.
