“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
Wolvennest.

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.

In 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
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).
