Biography

Sunderland / Nottingham, UK (2005 – present)

Wodensthrone was formed in Winterfylleð of 2005, in the Sundered Lands of North Eastern England, by founding members Brunwulf, Wildeþrýð, Gerádwine, and Hréowsian.

In these formative days, the clan’s sound was raw and primitive, but still hinted at a sense of sorrow, with lyrics focusing on the darker aspects of England’s history.

However, by Eostremonað of 2006, the clan’s music had developed both technically and melodically, and so Æðelwalh was recruited on synths. It was at this point that Wodensthrone truly began to resemble their current incarnation, growing both musically and conceptually.

After a number of live assaults, the clan self-recorded the song ’A Tribute To Our Glorious Dead’ on a 16-track, and thus the split 7” with fellow kinsmen Niroth was born. The clan also entered the studio to record 2 more songs, ’Scinlaeca’ and ’These Isolated Lands’ which would eventually emerge on the ’Over The Binding Of The Waves’ split CD with Folkvang (Belarus) on Ancient Nation records.

However, the clan still felt incomplete, and so comrade Eldbeorn joined the clan on guitar in the Blotmonað of 2006, completing the line-up and adding further depths of melody and savagery to the clan’s sound.

At the dawn of 2007, despite being hindered by personal circumstances, the clan re-entered the studio to record ’The Scouring’ and to put the finishing touches to their material for the split with Folkvang.

In Ðrimilcemonað of 2007 the clan were greatly honoured to appear live alongside Negura Bunget and Fen in the Sundered Lands; one of the defining moment’s in the band’s history. Later that month the clan also confirmed their alliance with Bindrune Recordings, and began focusing on their debut full length.

    Listening to Loss and these guys for the first time ahead of their DAMNATION appearance. Safe to say I'll be checking them out. This is INCREDIBLE work. IMMENSE.

    To be fair I've certainly espoused that sort of thing in the interviews since I joined, and I have explicitly deployed my anti-racist agenda within my contributions to the music with no opposition from any of the other members at any point. I guess it depends how much you want to split hairs about differentiating personal views I express when speaking on behalf of the band (with the band's endorsement) and "the views of the band" which is always going to be a more difficult concept to nail down.

    @slavenbilic, Wodensthrone have never openly said they're "non-political and AND AGAINST RACISM, DISCRIMINATION". I know this because I used to be in the band.

    People say Curse is good, but for me, 'Loss' is a true marvel. It's an album I can listen to full on through without stopping. Curse is a great album, but some songs drag on at times, while 'Loss' was able to keep everything bombastic.

    Everything they've released so far is ace. The split with Niroth, the 'Over Binding of the Waves" split and both full lengths are absolutely phenomenal. A very consistent band indeed.

    Curse is amazing. It's really cool to see an English band focus on some Anglo Saxon themes as I don't think that's been explored enough. Glad to see they're also tolerant non-racists as the two unfortunately often go hand in hand, ie. Stormfront etc.

    Love their music and what they represent in both traditional (pagan) and modern (liberal) way.

    "so they ARE political. I guess dragonbottles likes this band because they are GLBT friendly." To be against racism and discrimination doesn't have to be political. Simply showing compassion and consideration for all life as life itself. I don't need some political affiliation to feel that way.

    For some odd reason,I can't bring myself to love 'Curse'.But yet I fucking am in LOVE with 'Loss'.

    A fine band to come out of the Sundered Land. One of my favourites, actually.

    I dislike the traditional Old School Black Metal, it's just not my style, but I love this guys!
