Willing to create a an extreme and original musical project, Eric Ouellet and Jacques Villiard started in October 2001 the base of what was going to become Utlagr. One year later, the formation was completed by François C. Fortin on the drums and Sebastien Martel on bass guitar. Utlagr was born and still today, the group consists of these founding members.
Hantaoma is composed of the members of the neo trad medieval band Stille Volk, of Hypocras and of ex-Eviternity. The concept of this band was created in 1997. The aim was to mix metal and traditional music using electric and acoustic instruments (fiddle, chalemie, bag-pipe, bouzouki etc.). The songs written at that time weren't published because Stille Volk became more and more important.

Myrkvar is storming the Dutch and international metalstages since 2004 with their energetic folk/viking metal. The characteristic sound of the bands is best described as a mix between merry folk and rapid energetic guitar-riffs with banging drums. The fierce screams and grunts are alternated with clean vocals which creates a real folk-atmosphere.
Moonlyght was formed in the beginning of 1995 by Roby(vocals/guitars) and 3 long time friends. After a year of hard work the band entered Onyx Studio to record the demo «Midwinter melodies» which sold out in a couple of weeks.
Talamyus was created in 2002 by the St-Jean brothers (Benoît - guitar/vocals and Dany - bass) with the firm intention of developing their own original style; an hybrid of their personal influences, mainly Thrash, Death and Viking Metal... Something that, at the time, was never really approached nor experimented with by any local bands in their home town of Montréal.
