Short Biography

Moonsorrow was founded in late 1995 by cousins Henri and Ville Sorvali in their hometown of Helsinki, Finland. The description, "epic heathen metal", came into the picture somewhere later, but the general idea was there from the beginning: to create epic metal art with a good touch of national romanticism and a distinctively pagan approach. And as much as Moonsorrow's music may have evolved over the years, the principle is still the same.
