Wolven Ancestry began in 2006 with the release of their demo album "THE WRATH OF GAIA". It was written entirely in late 2005 by founding member FRAUST. Vocals and lyrics were needed and LORD DEFILER from the band FLESHCRAFT was chosen for the duties. In February 2006, the first WOLVEN ANCESTRY album was completed. A very talented and solid line up was sought out by the founding members and the brother of FRAUST, VESPER was chosen for guitar. SILDAV was also brought into the band to play bass along with NAGOLHAMMER for drums. After some jams and also naming the band it was decided that percussion duties should be accomplished by GUYZUS, also from the band FLESHCRAFT.
After spending some time learning and jamming the songs from the self produced album, the band played their first live show with local bands in their Northern Ontario town Sudbury. The band performed well and their hometown knew there was a new band with skill amongst them. Their second show seen them opening for Belgium greats LENG T'CHE and Canadian greats BENEATH THE MASSACRE and FUCK THE FACTS.
CD-R copies of the WRATH OF GAIA were made and distributed independently by the band. Many copies were requested from around the world almost immediately from orders online and in July of 2006 the band pressed the album through the label/booking agency ARCHAIC NORTH ENTERTAINMENT, also home of EMPYREAN PLAGUE.
August of 2006 saw the band on a successful headlining tour of the United States and Canada with NEFASTUS DIES. The bands fan base grew considerably during this tour.In
April the band shares the stage with 1349, GOATWHORE, NACHTMYSTIUM, and AVERSE SEFIRA. A few videos from this event were posted on Youtube and the band gained much more recognition as a great live band including a menacing cover of SATYRICON'S "Mother North".
The band is steadily on the rise, having shared the stage with many great bands including an Eastern Canadian tour in November in direct support for the legendary ROTTING CHRIST and also sharing the stage on off dates with many other great acts including ENSIFERUM, MACABRE and many more. New materials were being completed and peformed at this time at live events.
Many shows are played in 2007 to support the Wrath of Gaia, which is re-released on pressed CD's by Archiac North Entertainment. The album is sold around the world and the bands fanbase steadily grows.
The band records a video for the track "A Bloodline of Immortal Passion Bestowed The Harmony of Man and Wolf".
Several festival appearances are made including The Heathen Crusade 3 Festival, Sudbury Metal Feast 4, Quevellion Metalfest 2 and several other live shows in many different cities. The band shares the stage with great bands such as SIGH, IMPALED NAZARENE, MOONSORROW, EMETH, and UNEXPECT to name a few.
In November 2008 the band performs an extensive tour of Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and select US dates with local Ontario band WOODS OF YPRES. The band takes a small break to focus on personal lives and finishing up new materials for the next album. Fraust starts Sardonic Moon Studios and produces several bands albums including Empyrean Plague's "Ancestral Embers Shall Burn".
2009 sees the band finishing production and mastering for the self produced second album "Silence of the Boreal". The album is a much more focused and solid approach, using the studio skills of Fraust and collaberating together more for the writing and studio process. The album is released August 7th through Archaic North Entertainment, and distribution is set in place. The band performs at large shows with Norwegian Black Metal fathers MAYHEM, BEHEMOTH, and tours a headlining tour of Eastern Canada with Will of the Ancients and Cryptik Howling in late August and makes festival appearances at Nitemare Music Festival in Toronto and the International Metalfest in Michigan. More tour plans are also in store for 2009.
