Rising from the old kingdom of Hen Ogledd, ThunarWülf (olde English for Thunder Wolf) formed in 2022, with their first self titled EP being released at the end of the year.
Forged from members of local folk heroes Treebeard and The Kraken fused with a plethora of established metal musicians, ThunarWülf bring forward an energetic and aggressive mix of huge riffs, traditional folk melodies from the British Isles and beyond, sprinkled with catchy hooks. Described as “Ensiferum meets Warlock” and “The right mix of folk, 80’s metal and huge riffs”.
ThunarWülf sing songs of ancient myths and legends, many of which have remained untold since ages past. Fill your steins, raise your horns, and don your woad, for tonight, WE RIDE!
