Nidhoeggr was founded in the summer of 2009 and has since become an integral part of the Swiss folk metal scene. Since then, the six Bernese have been touring across Switzerland, playing as an opener for well-known bands such as ALESTORM or BLACK MESSIAH. In the fall of 2014, the popular folk metal band ENSIFERUM launched a competition for musicians. With the song "Swordbearer" Nidhoeggr managed to get the first place and won many new fans in the scene around the world. The debut album "Nach der Schlacht" was released in 2015 and received many good reviews.
The band manages to combine harsh Death Metal with catchy keyboard melodies. Through their multi-faceted sound, the band manages to create a gloomy atmosphere, but at the same time they can also whip up the mood with trollish party songs. For Nidhoeggr, variety is also important for the lyric part of their work. From texts that immerse you in the time of the Vikings, to socio-critical compositions, you can expect anything from this band. With her way of making music, Nidhoeggr succeeds perfectly in blending the past and the modern.
