Vuohivasara was formed at the beginning of the year 2005 by Thy Agony,
and Blake. The main target was to create brutal and fast blackmetal.
Inspiration to the lyrical concept was mainly drawn from occultism,
dark matters of the mind
and matters of personal autonomy. Vuohivasara is Finnish and it
translates as "Goathammer" in
English.The "goat" represents evil and the "hammer" represents hate.
The first demo, entitled "Pugni Principalis", was recorded in the
spring of 2005. During
August of the same year Diemonium joined the band as a bassist. He had
been playing with the same group earlier and he also did the recording
of "Pugni Principalis". About 100 copies of the first demo were distributed
Vuohivasara made their first video for the song "Dancing Daemons" in
the spring of 2006. It was shot and edited by Diemonium. It also ended
up as a bonus to the limited first 100 copies of the next demo, called
"Non-worthless Idols To Worship" (May 2006). The second demo spread
worldwide and got quite good reviews. As the band started gain more
attention within the international underground scene Vuohivasara was
contacted by a couple of
labels that showed their interest for the release of a full-length
album. Subsequently agreements for the release of Vuohivasara's debut
album were made between the band and a certain european underground
label during the summer 2006.
Autumn 2006 the band got in touch with Antonio, the owner of Iron, blood and
Death corporation from Mexico. He had heard some songs by Vuohivasara
from the Internet. He was interested to release a split album which was
supposed to feature Vuohivasara along with some Mexican blackmetal
band. This Mexican band never ended up on the split. Vuohivasara then
recommended a Finnish black metal band called WŚrpath to
be taken on the split as a replacement. Antonio was interested with
their material also.
So the split eventually contained two Finnish bands. The "Non-worthless
Idols To Worship"-demo was sent to Antonio to appear on the split album.
Blake left the band later during autumn 2006 because he had lost
interest in black metal and he wanted to play something else.
Vuohivasara started to search for a new
drummer. A couple of the band's friends supported the band as session
members for some months. In December 2006 the band found a new member,
impressed the remaining members with his skills. Luckily he was also
more blackmetal oriented. He became a full-time member after his first
At the end of January 2007 Vuohivasara started to record their first
full-length album entitled "The Sigil". Recording was done in several
sessions between January and February at the band's own infamous
Recording was done again by Diemonium. "The Sigil" got it's final mixing
and mastering in March at the Deviant Birth Studios at Vaasa.
Shortly after the recording of "The Sigil", Diemonium chose to
leave the band, because he was more interested in playing something
else than blackmetal.
After "The Sigil" was recorded, the deal which Vuohivasara got at summer
2006 was canceled by their label after they had listened to the final
mastered tape of the album. After the band's prior arrangements had
been cancelled, they introduced the material to IBDC (since they had
earlier offered to release the VV/WP-split) and Antonio
was immediately interested to release the album. He offered a deal,
which the band
In September 2007 Midgard was recruited to the band as a bassist. Soon he
transferred to play the second guitar, because he was also, and
primarily, a good guitarist.
Most of the songs were composed for two guitars to begin with, so it made more
sense to have two guitarists. This also opened more doors to the
composing and playing process of new songs.
"The Sigil" and Vuohivasara/WŚrpath "Thorns Pest Blood" -split were
released on December 2007.
During fall 2008 the band was preparing their new material for
recording, and during this period it started to seem that Midgard
wasn't able to contribute a satisfactory input to practicing. He was
busy due to his commitments to other bands and projects. So after a
while Midgard discharged from the lineup. Around the same time
Vuohivasara found a new bassist, Slither, who seemed fit to handle the
band's bass duties. Also a replacement for Midgard was found in the
talented guitarist called Evil.
Vuohivasara entered Necrobotnia studios (Vaasa, Finland) with the line
up in April
2009 in order to record their second full length, entitled
A Cult Revived. The album
will consist of eight brand new songs of
agressive and atmospherical black metal crafted
according to the
finest Scandinavian traditions and added with the band's own personal
The album will be released during autumn 2009.
After recording of the album Havoc Slither decided to quit in the
band. Vuohivasara made their first official public performance at the
releasegig of their new album "A Cult Revived" on the 27th of November
2009. The line up was expanded with a new member I (vocals & guitar)
and session bassplayer Tyrant. In January 2010 Infidel Viktor
Capricorn decided to leave the band. After this I took over the lead
vocal duties after having shown his skills during the bands earlier
After the album release Vuohivasara did also play few more succesfull
gigs in Kokkola and Turku. After these gigs it seemed that Evil wasn't
able to continue in the band anymore and he was replaced by Khael, who
truely claimed his place performing a flawless gig at Helsinki only
after one band rehearsal the day before the gig.
