NETHERBIRD has blurred the boundaries between black, death and other extreme strains of heavy metal since 2004. The band was founded by like-minded individuals among the Swedish metal scene with the intentions of creating harsh metal while drawing inspiration from black and death metal without any regards, or limitations, to the structures surrounding each respective sub-genre.
While originally conceived as a studio project, NETHERBIRD featured a wide array of renowned guests and guild members to add their personal touch to the musical canvas: Adrian Erlandsson (At The Gates, The Haunted, ex-Cradle of Filth, ex-Paradise Lost), Janne Saarenpää (The Crown), Daniel “Mojjo” Moilanen (The Project Hate, Katatonia) among others. Even the further history of NETHERBIRD as a band credits a long list of versatile musicians, such as Nils Fjellström (Nordjevel, ex-Dark Funeral), Tobias Gustafsson (ex-Eucharist), Erik Röjås (Sterbhaus, ex-Decadence), Love Stark (Mephorash, Withershin), to join the unit at different stages and refine its sound with their unique skills. Feel free to explore the full roster of Netherbird.
Over the years, NETHERBIRD has released four full-length albums and made a number of tours across Europe, including several festival appearances. Their latest album is 2016’s critically-acclaimed The Grander Voyage, which catapulted the band into the higher echelon of extreme underground metal. Now, it is time for the next step with the release of Into the Vast Uncharted via Eisenwald.
