The Tiwaz horde began in February, 2002, e.v., formed by Eikonoklastes, Devilish and Lordgrimm. The main idea of the band is to defend the pride and honor of the ancestral inheritance, to raise the true spirit, strength and bravery of free men and our pagan beliefs. TIWAZ GENRES
Amidst great battles, when the anger of the winds blew and the howl of the wolves was heard from the southern forests, the clan of the warriors had completed itself with the joining of the drummer Abyssius. By a strong and unbreakable union, now they are able to ride their thunderous black horses through the times.
Tiwaz, ideologically identified as Pagan Metal, tries to rescue the honor of the warriors tradition and the old pagan folk through triumphant hymns of pride and courage. All the aggressiveness and the strong values are transmitted in their hymns, an elegiacal poetry to great ancestor warriors. The barbarism, paganism, mythology, belligerence, mysticism, pride, honor, as well as the anti-christianism are part of the lyrical concept.
In November 2002 was released the first official album titled "The Rune of Victory" comprised of 4 pagan hymns: "The Battlelore", "Preldio Herico", "Witch Eyes Ablaze" and "As the Howl of the Wolves". It can convey a good idea of the musical style unmercifully followed by the horde, showing all the angry and fury of those pagan warriors.
This independent CD was released in the beginning of 2003 e.v., in split-CD format, titled "Southern Pagan Resistance", with the other southern horde Thorns of Evil (Pagan Black Metal), featuring 8 songs (approximately 41 min). Due to the good impression of this work, few weeks after the release, the Tiwaz horde signed with the Brazilian label Somber Music. The label Somber Music re-released officially the "The Rune of Victory" album as MCD (2004) and plan to release a new album soon. The "The Rune of Victory" was also released by Total War Recs & Sephiroth DP. as a demo tape format (2003).
