Horn was formed as a solo project in 2003 and is a solitary musical undertaking up to the present day. The initial drive behind the project was to create nature-themed Black Metal, focusing on the relation of man and nature in a regional context. The old material, being mainly concerned with detailed descriptions of nature and incorporating rather upbeat, folk-influenced riffing, has made way for more sinister themes and soundscapes over the years. What has remained throughout the course of seven studio albums is the distinct “Horn” sound, featuring siren-like lead guitars, classical Black Metal-styled vocals as well as clean chorals and a serious folkloristic approach far from the jolly drunken Viking tunes celebrated these days.

The Viking metal veterans MÅNEGARM started out in 1995 in Norrtälje, Sweden and was one of the early bands to play pagan/Viking metal before this style became a big trend. The use of traditional instruments like violins and flute but also female vocals in their metal music came in early and over the course of nine studio albums the Swedes have developed their gripping mix of death/black metal, paired with well thought out folk arrangements. MÅNEGARM celebrated their 20th anniversary 2015 with releasing a brand new self-titled album "Månegarm" which received great reviews.

In 2018 Månegarm entered the studio to record their 10th studio album which is a conceptual album telling some fantastic stories based on great adventurous sagas such as “Hervararsagan”, “Völsungasagan” and “Saga om konung Ragnar Lodbrok och hans söner” (the Saga of King Ragnar Lodbrok and his sons) The album, named “Fornaldarsagor”, was released through Napalm Records the 26th of April 2019.

The brand new album: “Ynglingaättens öde”, has just been released, 15th of April 2022, via Napalm Records and this time the band offers a conceptual album based on the old Norse poem Ynglingatal. The poem tell us about a Swedish old Norse dynasty of rulers/kings of Uppsala and details their deeds, their rule and above all - their deaths.

Over the years Animatrum and Host of Cinder tried to revive Black Metal in Hamburg but unfortunately never succeeded because of circumstances out of their hands. Few more years passed by until Valfor completed the trio: Totenwache was born. For most cities and this may not be something special - but over years, Hamburg grew more and more into a stronghold against black metal and the principles of this subculture. Even long-established black metal bands in Hamburg and its closer regions turned away from their former beliefs and dedicated themselves to other genres – to be never confronted with any headwind, discussions and fears.
We as Totenwache actively oppose that behaviour.
We do not just think Hamburg needs black metal.
We find: Hamburg has earned Black Metal. Uncompromising and raw.
Our demo "Ursprung" already presented our style well when it was released in 2017. We have always been fascinated by the harmonies and the atmosphere of finnish black metal - of which our style was significantly influenced. But of course we also drew our influences from occasional musical trips to France and Germany. This is how our own style has developed to this day and even continues to mature today.
In autumn 2018 our second release "Verbrannte Erde" saw the light of day. A split CD which features with "Säuberung" and "Treacherous Sorcery" two songs that have made significant leaps in all matters since our demo.
At the beginning of August 2019 our full length debut "D

After a very promising EP released back in 2021 and a handful of singles that sparked folkmetal fans' enthusiasm - especially the Scandinavian strain - Vansind has finally released its debut album, ’Mørket’ through Target/Mighty Music in November 2023. With their roots planted deep and strong in the dark Danish soil, the band provides a solid soundtrack for battle, chain dance and raised horns with melodies inspired by folk music that meets solid metal, rumbling growls, and clean female singing. The lyrical themes are inspired by the darker side of Nordic mythology and Scandinavian history.

Where the glimmer of the eye meets the glimpse of the sword you will find Vansind. And, if you enter the dance, maybe you will get a glimpse of the mighty Valhal too.

Vansind is based in Slagelse, Denmark and was formed in the summer of 2019 as a folk-inspired metal band. All Vansind members musical background is vastly different, but they have a shared love for the music and a determination to add something special to the Danish folkmetal scene. In 2023 alone they graced festivals such as Næstved Metalfest (DK), Asgaard Rock Festival (DK), Warhorns Festival (UK), Hörnerfest (DE), Burning Q Festival (DE) and Udgaardsfest (DK) and have now set sails for a bigger conquering tour in support of their amazing new debut studio album.
