In the cold winter of 2002 out of the ashes of several metalbands the project Draugr was formed.
At first the were old-style black metal orientated. After a crisis caused by motivation problem with several members there was a change. There were some changes in the line-up, causing the creation of Draugr eventually. The music is based on pagan metal, inspired by forces of nature and the remembrance of old traditions, legends and barbarians. This combined with their pride for ancient Italian warriors as the Samnites, Marsii, Vestinii and Marrucinii.
