In the year 2009 Durothar came to life in Hamburg - Germany. The first years they played melodic Pagan Metal, but as the time ran by and a few changes in the line up happened, the music changed bit by bit. Nowadays the five musicians are playing a heavy mix of Black and (melodic) Death Metal with german lyrics about journeys to foreign northern countries, big battles, the dangers out on sea and the joy of a safe return. Within that they don't try to look and act like the usual Pagan/Viking Metal band and are not scared to show some self-mockery. In the last few years they played concerts in and around Hamburg, Lübeck and Bremen, and also in Denmark, together with bands like Grimner, Welicoruss, Munarheim, Satanic Assault Division and Nothgard. the first album "Auf See" was released in december 2016. Durothar likes to play in clubs and at festivals all over Germany and the surrounding countries.

Vansind was formed in the summer of 2019 as a folk inspired metal band. The band is based in Slagelse, Denmark though the members are from all over the country. Just as the members geographical difference their musical background is also vastly different. The love for music is shared and a wish to add something special to the Danish folk scene. With their feet planted firmly in the Danish soil the band wishes to play up to battle, chain dance and raised horns when the melodies inspired by folk music meet solid metal, rumbling growl and clean female singing. The lyrical themes are inspired from the darker side of the Nordic mythology and Scandinavian history. Debuting in 2020 with the single ’Valborgsnat’ (Walpurgis’ Night) and the 3 song ep ’MXIII’ in 2021, Vansind is ready to play the songs to the public. Bring your mead and maidens and join us for an energetic folk metal night. Where the glimmer of the eye meets the glimpse of the sword you’ll find Vansind. And if you enter the dance, maybe a glimpse of Valhal.
