Nidhoeggr was founded in the summer of 2009 and has since become an integral part of the Swiss folk metal scene. Since then, the six Bernese have been touring across Switzerland, playing as an opener for well-known bands. In the fall of 2014, the popular folk metal band Ensiferum launched a competition for musicians. With the song “Swordbearer” Nidhoeggr managed to get the first place and won many new fans around the world. The debut album “Nach der Schlacht” was released in 2015 and was received very well by critics.

Nidhoeggr manages to combine harsh Death Metal with catchy keyboard melodies, always experimenting with different sounds. Through their multi-faceted sound, the band creates a gloomy atmosphere, but can also whip up the mood with trollish party songs. For Nidhoeggr, this variety is an important part of their lyrical work as well. From songlyrics that immerse the listeners in the time of the Vikings, to socio-critical compositions, anything can be expected. With this unique way of making music, Nidhoeggr succeeds perfectly in blending the past and the modern.
