Biography

(1995 – 2014)

Gwydion’s journey started in 1995, a project founded by a group of friends that shared the same passion for metal and interest in Celtic culture.

The first years of activity were essential for the band to evolve technically and refine its own musical style. Every member had slightly different music tastes, which resulted in a different perspective of melodic black metal, inspired more in Celtic mythology and ancient traditions and rituals, than the typical subject at that time.

During these first stages of the band, three demos were presented to the portuguese metal scene and dozens of gigs were performed throughout Portugal. The period between 2001-2004 meant harsh times for the band, with some line-up changes and departures from the band that caused almost a complete stall, and put the band fierceness and self-belief at test.
But everything was about to change. In the year that followed, Gwydion reemerged with full force, and also new musical ideas, and started to compose new songs, with strong folk / viking / pagan influences, without forgetting their own black metal roots.

In October 2014, the band took an “indefinite leave of absence” after 20 years.
