Brundarkh is a melodic death metal project inspired by dark fantasy stories and founded in late 2020 by Heino Brand. Shortly after he was joined by Caleb Bingham and they released their first single Wraith Dominion. The track also featured a guest solo by guitarist, Jori Haukio of Mors Principium Est.
During 2021 they produced the EP Haunted Worlds, mixed at Nightmare Sound and mastered by Thomas “Plec” Johansson of The Panic Room. Their new album Those Born Of Fire And Shadow is inspired by places and characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s literary work, primarily that of “The Silmarillion”. The album features guest artists from Wolfheart, Before The Dawn, Dawn of Solace, Mors Principium Est and Eternal Tears Of Sorrow. They’ve released two singles from the album earlier this year, The Dark Tree and Lair Of The Gloomweaver. Their 3rd single is called Beneath The Axe Of Gothmog and features Tuomas Saukkonen of Wolfheart and Risto Ruuth of Eternal Tears Of Sorrow. An energetic and bombastic track worthy of the fires of the Iron Prison.
