Wilderun, a Symphonic Folk Metal was conceived in 2008, but only in early 2012 the band got really active when the line-up was completed. The band played their first live show in March of 2012, alongside Turisas, Alestorm and Arkona at Paganfest III.
A first album “Olden Tales & Deathly Trails” was released in 2012.
The band combines original material with traditional folk songs, many of which have been pulled from America’s rich repertoire. Wilderun’s goal is to bring these old and lost folk tales to a modern audience, giving them a fresh metal twist, as well as creating epic, original compositions.
