Record label and music distro for unconventional underground art
Wigrid was founded in 1998 by Ulfhednir as a one man project in Saarbrücken, Germany, with the simple objective of creating black metal in the “old style”. After realizing his vision of black metal on several demo tapes, Wigrid sparked professional label interest and over the next couple of years released two acclaimed full-length albums titled "Hoffnungstod" and "Die Asche Eines Lebens", which introduced Wigrid to the international underground scene, quickly gaining a reputation and following.
Afterwards, it became rather quiet around Wigrid and Ulfhednir was withdrawing more and more from the drastically changed black metal scene, being musically active in other groups and projects. However, he managed to write and record material for a planned Wigrid EP, which didn′t see the light of day until the band Sunshine & Lollipops, friends and collaborators from the earliest days, instigated the split album "Split The Indifference - Geteilte Gleichgültigkeit", subsequently released on Bleeding Heart Nihilist Productions.
Since 2015, a newly motivated Ulfhednir has specifically installed a home studio to work on the material for a complete full-length album, which was finalized in time for Wigrid′s 20-year anniversary in the spring of 2019.
“Entfremdungsmoment” will be officially released on September 11th 2019, here in its CD edition as a 2-panel Digipak with an 8-page booklet, as well as a professionally printed silver cassette tape with a double-sided 2-panel booklet in black casing – limited to only 100 copies worldwide! A vinyl edition with unreleased bonus material is also on the horizon.
