SURTURS LOHE can look back on 5 albums since their 25th anniversary, a split CD and many successful concerts. They are a constant size of the Thuringian Pagan Metal scene & some members of SURTURS LOHE are also in other Pagan Metal bands like MENHIR, ODROERIR and FIMBULVET.
On „Wielandstahl“ Surturs Lohe present nine songs, that could not be more epic and primeval. This is old school Thuringian Pagan Metal. High velocity riffing is contrasted with mighty choirs and folky use of the flute embellishes acoustic guitar arrangements, reminiscent of early works of Ulver. Lyrically „Wielandstahl“ is an interpretation of the story of Wieland, the blacksmith. Produced by mastermind Markus Stock (Empyrium, The Vision Bleak, Sun Of The Sleepless) at Klangschiede E Studio, the album embraces you with a warm, cozy sound. Shir-Ran Yinon (Haggard) and Stephan Löscher (Fjoergyn) are featured as guest musicians.

"Real Pagan Metal has a cultural historical soul, it is steeped in the mythological inheritance handed down through generations, steeped in respect for the elements and their mythology. This is real Pagan Metal!"
Alan Nemtheanga Averill - Primordial ++++
"Even after 25 years of existence Surturs Lohe has not extinguished. On „Wielandstahl“ the band reminds us of stories from days long gone, presenting them in a soundscape consisting of epic melodies, elated rhythms but also speedy passages. We congratulate you on your persistence."
Skaldir – Ash of Ashes, Hel ++++
"Thuringian Pagan Metal at its best! An atmospheric journey through the dark forest of Thuringia. If you like Menhir or Odroerir, you will love Surturs Lohe!"
Peteris – Skyforger.
