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. Relocating to Vienna in 2013 allowed them to increase efficiency and get involved in a bigger musical movement.
With their energetic and unique 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 spreading their vision of Heavy Metal.
In 2016, the band released their press-praised debut album “Descending” and got signed by METAL ON METAL RECORDS. The single “Made Man” released in 2017 revealed a glimpse of what to expect from the second album, the band is currently working on.
After several line-up changes over the years, WILDHUNT are now a stable force again with the entrance of six-string-sorcerer Julian Malkmus and bass master Bentaro Rifferashi.
With rattling and tremendous moaning, the hunter’s drawing near!
