WLVNNST started 2013 by Kirby Michel, Corvus Von Burtle and Marc De Backer. It proposes a compositional process of guitar loops, repetitive beats, synthesizers keys mixed to darkened hypnotic ambient vocal sounds.
Wolvennest’s debut album (2016), featuring Der Blutharsch and The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand members 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) channels a more dark energy with mysterious vibes, and brought the Nest in 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. »Void« album artwork cover painting named “Uni” was offered by musician/artist Bobby Beausoleil and worked perfectly with the occult and ritual musical approach of the Nest.
April 2019 sees Wolvennest performing live the album »Void« in his entirety for an 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. All the visuals were made and screened by A Thousand Lost Civilizations, and are part of the Nest since the very beginning. In the meantime Wolvennest brings out a exclusive 3 songs EP named »Vortex«.
From that moment the Nest followed their ascension of shows all over Europe and joined in February 2020 bands and close friends Dread Sovereign and Saturnalia Temple for a ten days tour which ended by a special night at venue Ancienne Belgique, an ultime occasion for The Nest to record »Ritual MMXX« live album in hometown Brussels.
In March 2020 Wolvennest started the recordings of their third full album, which was in the meantime the beginning of pandemic diving humanity in obscure days and an unprecedented situation. For this opus every members injected soul, heart, sweat and open the gates of their temple with among others songs as »Mantra«, »Swear To Fire«, »Disappear«, »Succubus« collaboration with TJ Cowgill from King Dude on vocals, »Souffle de Mort« closing »Temple« by an ultime witchy occult ceremony moment.
