“While we stayed in the abyss, we followed the dark path to the light, fearless and confident…”
WOLVENNEST started in 2013 by Kirby Michel, Corvus Von Burtle and Marc De Backer. It proposed a
compositional process of guitar loops, repetitive beats, synthesizers keys, mixed to darkened
hypnotic ambient vocal sounds. Their debut album (2016), featuring Der Blutharsch and The Infinite
Church Of The Leading Hand’s Albin Julius and Marthynna as guests and co-writers of the album, was
described as a mix of 70’s Krautrock psychedelic sounds mixed with early 90’s Norwegian Black
Metal, the whole unfolding like a swirling movie score.

Their second album “Void” (2018) channeled a darker energy with mysterious vibes, and brought the
band to the most occult festivals and places of Europe such as House of the Holy, Chaos Descends, A
Thousand Lost Civilizations Brussels festival, Roadburn Festival, Sauzipf Rocks Festival, Invoking the
Ancient Ritual, as well as supporting acts such as Wolves In A Throne Room, Dool, Electric Wizard,
Urfaust and many others. The album artwork cover painting named “Uni” was offered by
musician/artist Bobby Beausoleil and worked perfectly with the occult and ritual musical approach of

April 2019 saw WOLVENNEST performing the album “Void” live in its entirety for a unique show on
the mainstage of Roadburn Festival with an exclusive line-up made of Shazzula (vocals/theremin),
Michel Kirby (guitar), Corvus Von Burtle (guitar), Marc De Backer (guitar), John Marx (bass), Bram
Moerenhout (drums) , DéHà (vocals) and lead member of The Ruins Of Beverast Alexander Von
Meilenwald (vocals) as special guest .

In the meantime WOLVENNEST released an exclusive 3 song EP named “Vortex”. From that moment
Wolvennest followed their ascension of shows all over Europe and joined in February 2020 bands
Dread Sovereign and Saturnalia Temple for a ten day tour which ended by a special night at venue
Ancienne Belgique, an occasion for the band to record the “Ritual MMXX” live album in their
hometown Brussels.

In March 2020 WOLVENNEST started the recordings of their third full-length album, at the beginning
of the pandemic which was diving humanity in obscure days and an unprecedented situation. For this
opus every member injected soul, heart, sweat and opened the gates of their temple with songs as
“Mantra”, “Swear to Fire”, “Disappear”, “Succubus” (featuring a collaboration with TJ Cowgill from
King Dude on vocals) and “Souffle de mort”, which is closing “Temple” with an ultimate witchy occult
ceremony moment. I

n April 2021, Roadburn Festival gave Wolvennest the opportunity to envision what can be a live
experience again. For this reduced and live streamed edition of the festival, the band presented 2
different exclusive sets, one from Wolvennest, and a commissioned set of new music from another
entity, The Nest. With Wolvennest, they presented their new album “Temple” in its entirety, and
with The Nest they performed “Her True Nature”, was performed by The Nest, an entity born
through the festival’s input to originally request a commissioned piece of music written by Kirby
Michel and Corvus Von Burtle, featuring all Wolvennest members, Tommie Ericksson (Saturnalia
Temple), Raven Van Dorst (DOOL), Alan Averill (Primordial, Dread Sovereign), Meilenwald (The Ruins
Of Beverast), Déhà and Bones (Dread Sovereign).
