Founded in the depths of a sepulchral Carinthian cellar in late 2011 by guitarist/vocalist Wolfgang Elwitschger and drummer Lukas Roth, WILDHUNT soon arose from the dungeons and were prepared for the hunt. In late 2012 Benjyi Breeg joined their way on bass and completed the line-up. Relocating to Vienna in 2013 allowed them to increase efficiency and get involved in a bigger musical movement.
With their energetic music they soon rushed all over Austria and conquered a number of foreign stages including countries like Germany, The Netherlands, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Poland, Croatia and Belgium sharing stage with brothers in arms spreading their vision of heavy thrash metal.
After signing to METAL ON METAL RECORDS accompanied with the release of WILDHUNT’s press-praised first full-length, “Descending”, the single “Made Man” was released via YouTube, gaining new fans steadily since.
Over the years, some guitar line-up changes marked their way. WILDHUNT are now flying as 4 piece again, incorporating their new string-sorcerer and buddy Julian Malkmus on guitar.
