Verwilderd is a young and upcoming heavy band founded in Antwerp, Belgium in 2019. The band had released one demosingle and one EP as an independent artist before signing to Necktwister Agency in 2021: Eyes Sewn Shut (2020) and Homo Homini Lupus Est (2021)
They worked with Bram Janssens and Lukas Grymonprez at Vloer 1, Leuven for recording and mixing of their debut EP. Mastering was done by producer Yarne Heylen (Project Zero Studio). Guest appearances on the record include Lukas Risbourg and Sunita haeghebaert (both in Dark Palace). The artwork was created by the young, promising artist Zina Janssens, lay-out by Kaat Nouwen.
The band was founded in 2019 by Brent Peeters and a few friends.
Bram Janssens joined the band as a producer and bass player in 2019, Siebe Hermans (When Plagues Collide) joined on drums during the recording process of Eyes Sewn Shut. The band obtained its current form by the addition of guitar player Dirk Willemsens (Provectus)
Verwilderd plays a mix of death and black metal which is hard to label. The band doesn’t restrict itself to a particular style. Their music combines the coldness of black metal with the hard-hitting riffs of death metal, alternating between rage, emotion and mere insanity.
