Huldre has its beginnings back in 2006 but it wasn’t until early 2009 that Huldre, as you know it today, really started to take shape. In 2009 Huldre recorded the low-budget, selftitled 5-track demo and made it available to the public for free. In late 2010 the band was joined by a flute and hurdy-gurdy player and thus the line-up of today was complete.
Huldre is a Copenhagen(Denmark) based folk-metal act with strong emphasis on the folk elements of this genre. Pulling on the varied backgrounds of its seasoned and experienced musicians, Huldre creates heavy and melodic folk-metal based on the legacy of medieval danish and Nordic folk-music. The 6 members of Huldre has backgrounds in genres such as Traditional acoustic medieval music, death & black metal, reggae, traditional danish folk-music, classical music. “where other folk-metal bands play metal with added folk, Huldre plays folk with added metal”. Huldre’s first full-length album was released in 2012.
They played at Wacken 2014 and got a lot of positive feedback on that gig.
