Windrider started as a homestudioproject in 2008. After some experiments and a few demo’s a first EP was released in 2009. This was well received and a band was formed to perform live. When the line-up is stable in 2011 the frequency of gigs becomes higher. Starting with the Heidenfesttour of 2011 mr. Windrider himself performs on stage with Alestorm.
Windrider remains an Epic Viking solo project.
