|Wilderun is a symphonic folk metal band based out of Boston, Massachusetts.
The band combines original material with traditional folk songs, many of which have been pulled from America's rich repertoire. Wilderun's goal is to bring these old and lost folk tales to a modern audience, giving them a fresh metal twist, as well as creating epic, original compositions.
Wilderun was conceived in 2008 by vocalist and guitarist Evan Berry, but only recently came into fruition in early 2012, when guitarist and orchestrator Wayne Ingram, bassist Dan Müller, and drummer Jon Teachey joined forces with Evan.
The band played their first live show in March of 2012, alongside Turisas, Alestorm and Arkona at Paganfest III in Worcester, MA. With an incredible crowd response, Wilderun set out to record their first full length album Olden Tales & Deathly Trails in May. Between May and June, the album was completed at More Sound Studios.
Olden Tales & Deathly Trails was released in the Fall of 2012.
