In the year 2009 Durothar came to life in Hamburg - Germany. The first years they played melodic Pagan Metal, but as the time ran by and a few changes in the line up happened, the music changed bit by bit.
Nowadays the five musicians are playing a heavy mix of Black and (melodic) Death Metal with german lyrics about journeys to foreign northern countries, big battles, the dangers out on sea and the joy of a safe return. Within that they don't try to look and act like the usual Pagan/Viking Metal band and are not scared to show some self-mockery. In the last few years they played concerts in and around Hamburg, Lübeck and Bremen, and also in Denmark, together with bands like Grimner, Welicoruss, Munarheim, Satanic Assault Division and Nothgard. The first album "Auf See", self recorded and mixed/mastered by Heiko Domeier, was released in december 2016 and from now on the goal is to play as many gigs as possible. Club gigs or festivals, Durothar is ready for a raid in Germany or the surrounding countries!
