BIOGRAPHY


Weltschmerz is a Dutch black metal band known for their ferocious live performances. The band was founded in 2009 by Hręsvelg, Valr and Hreim and was later amended by bassist Vidar. Vidar and Weltschmerz parted ways late 2013 due to differences within the band. After releasing several demos and the addition of guitarist Eitr in 2012, Weltschmerz released its first full-length album in 2014 entitled Odium Humani Generis through Immortal Frost Productions. The band has since then been taking Europe by storm with live appearances in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Denmark, Czech Republic, Germany and Switzerland.
