Biography

Saarbrücken, Germany (1998 – present)

Wigrid was founded in 1998 by Ulfhednir as a one man project in Saarbrücken, Germany. After the band was created, the first demo, “Die Totgeburt Jesu Christi”, was released. This demo contained five songs and was never officially published. In the early months of 1999, the second Wigrid demo, “Ort Der Einsamkeit” was finished being recorded. About a year later, the demo “Hoffnungstod” was completed.

Through that, Wigrid sparked the interest of German label No Colours Records, who over the next couple of years released two full-length albums titled “Hoffnungstod” and “Die Asche Eines Lebens”. These were met with generally positive reactions and introduced Wigrid to the international underground scene, quickly gaining a reputation and following.

Afterwards, it became rather quiet around Wigrid. In the meantime, contact with No Colours had ceased completely, and Ulfhednir was also withdrawing more and more from the drastically changed black metal scene, being musically active in other groups and projects. However, he managed to write and record material for a planned Wigrid EP, which didn’t see the light of day until the relatively young and unknown band Sunshine & Lollipops from Berlin finally contacted him in order to instigate a collaboration.
