HASPYD are a Ukrainian folk metal/pagan metal band from Kharkiv, Ukraine, founded in 2009. Along with pure vocals, growling and screaming are used. Guitar riffs complement folk instruments such as sopilka (Ukrainian pipes), bandura (Ukrainian strings instrument sound like a harp), drymba (Ukrainian Jew's harp), zhalijka (Slavic instrument sounds like a one piped bagpipe), violin, etc. Some compositions contain elements of death metal. Stylistic affiliation is quite relative. The most characteristic works by genre can be compared with the songs of the bands Ensiferum and Eluveitie.

The band plays on some big Ukrainian and Belorussian festivals. All songs written in Ukrainian languages. Even two covers of Amon Amarth and Hypocrisy translated into Ukrainian. Before 2014 HASPYD works with Russian label Sound Age Productions. Nowadays they have a deal with Italian label Eternal Winter Records.

Lyrics plays around themes such as Rus and Sich historical periods of Ukraine, cossacs, Ukrainian national liberation struggle in XX century, Russian-Ukrainian war (2014-present time), patriotism, nature, Ukrainian mythology, etc.
