Biography: 

NORÐ was founded in 2013 in Odense in the southern region of Denmark. The ambition was to create groove metal with progressive elements and inspiration from the Nordic folk music tradition.
Within a year the band had written a full set and started playing live gigs. The audience had a very positive response to the band’s music and performance.

In 2016 the recordings for the debut EP “Alpha” began at Molten Rock Studio in Odense with producer Jesper Egeskov Sommerby.
It was released in March 2017 on the Finnish label Inverse Records, and the lead single “Rosehip Garden” received airplay in several countries including The United States, Australia, The Netherlands, Italy and Spain. The EP also received some very fine
reviews both in Denmark and internationally.
In 2017 drummer Rune Kolsbjerg Hansen joined the band, after the departure of Magnus Elisson.

Since the release of 'Alpha', the band has had a very busy live schedule, and the bookings keep rolling in.
Some of the highlights so far: Supporting mighty Hamferð along with Caustic in NORÐ’s hometown Odense, playing Odense Harbour Culture Festival with Annominus & Isbjörg, playing H.C. Andersen Festival, playing with Theory & Encyrcle at Posten, Odense, playing at ObScene with Shadowspawn & The Petulant and playing Metal Café at Godset. Also, the Plekter tour with Royal Deceit & Odd Palace, where NORÐ’s very dear friend Perle (Invocator) joined the band on stage at the show in Odense for a solo.  (See picture above)

In august 2018, NORÐ released the new track 'The Run' on the metal compilation 'Hell Comes Around III', along with an official music video for the track!

For - what would turn out to be - a short while during spring of 2019, NORÐ was fronted by their new vocalist Anitta Soliz Nielsen, after parting ways with former vocalist Bjarne Matthiesen, and played two shows: One show at Studenterhuset, Odense with our good friends, Arsenic Addict, and one at High Voltage, CPH..
Due to circumstances beyond the bands control, Anitta will not be a part of NORÐ in future endeavours..
