1. Considered to be one of the most successful rock groups of all time to grace the music scene of Turkey, Kurban is a Turkish band formed in 1995. In 1999 they opened for Metallica in "Ali Sami Yen" stadium located in Istanbul and short after their last big live performance in ROCKISTANBUL in which they opened for Megadeth, they broke-up in 2005. On December 30th, 2006 it was announced on the official Kurban web site that the band is back together. Kurban -- a quartet comprised of vocalist/guitarist Deniz Yilmaz, drummer Burak Gürpinar, bass guitarist Kerem Tuzun, and lead guitarist Umut Gokcen -- were formed in 1995 under the name Outside. Two years later they took third place in the Roxy Music Days contest with their new name, Kurban -- which had a double meaning, either "victim" or "sacrificial animal" in a religious context. In 1999 the band released its self-titled debut album. With an approach rarely seen in Turkish rock, combining heavy hard rock riffs with a punk attitude, the band quickly drew widespread attention thanks to the hit "Yalan." Kurban were quickly chosen to open for that year in a stadium concert in Istanbul. Taking to the stage wearing skirts, they had to play under the boos of the crowd -- as they weren't metal enough to open for the thrash gods.

In 2001, lead guitarist Umut Gokcen was replaced by Özgür Kankaynar. A covers album, Sert, was released in 2004, and heavy versions of "Sari Cizmeli Mehmet Aga" and "Aglama Degmez Hayat" were well received. A year later the band released its second album of original material, entitled Insanlar. Moving further away from punk influences and blending in more Turkish-style vocals with a darker tone, Insanlar showcased the band's mature face while retaining its naughty side. In May 2005, the members of Kurban decided to part ways. Deniz Yilmaz formed a new band called Panik, drummer Burak Gürpinar joined , and bass guitarist Kerem Tuzun began playing alongside -- however, in late 2006 Kurban announced their reunion.

Kurban currently has four full length studio albums:
"Kurban" (1999)
"Sert" (2004)
"İnsanlar" (2005)
"Sahip" (2010)

The members are:
