Strydegor - Biography

In autumn 2006 David decided to left the band because of personal reasons and Clemens Thieke take over the place on bass guitar. They changed their name into „Strydegor" and found their right music style - Viking Metal. The name Strydegor is derived from a nordic warrior. On 15th of March 2008 they released their first demo album titled „Legends of Midgard" on a concert with bavarian Pagan-Metal band Wolfchant.
