BandMetalRock

Wendigo is playing groovy modern metal flavoured with twisted rhythms. However they came from a prog metal background which is still noticeably present in their work. It's all about the perfect balance between metal and popular things: melodic vocals and crunchy guitar riffs - the best of two worlds

Biography

Wendigo - a Hungarian modern metal band with influences from various styles - achieved a major breakthrough in their home country: They have released their debut album (Let It Out) in 2006, by winning the Best Debut category in the "Hungarian Metal Awards", and gaining the second place in the Album Of The Year section. Also, they were nominated for EUROVISION 2007 by the Association of Hungarian Record Companies (MAHASZ), and gained second position in the "Newcomer of the Year" section on Fonogram Contest, overtaking many famous Hungarian pop stars.

All of the album reviews highlight the unique sound of the band, and their way of mixing modern and traditional influences, crunchy guitars, tricky rhytms and melodic vocals into a fresh and exciting style.

Warning! Their live performance is also a killer!
