HISTORY :
Founded in September 2007, Rabenwolf started as a classical pagan/folkmetal band with lyrics about battles and Norse mythology. After their first album "Aus alten Zeiten" their sound became much darker and they developed their own interpretation of folk metal, mixed with harsh black metal influences and a good portion of rock'n'roll. With the "Stethu" EP in 2015 they gave a first impression of their evolution which is now completed with the new album "zu Staub" which will be released on February 1st in 2019.
