Biografie

Wuthering Heights sind eine dänische Power Metal-Band mit weitreichenden Elementen aus dem Folk-, Heavy-, Speed- und Progressive-Bereich. Trotz der epischen Kompositionen mangelt es der Band nicht an schlüssigem Songwriting, welches vor allem aus der Feder des Gitarristen und einzig verbliebenen Gründungsmitglieds Erik Ravn stammt.

Die Band selbst gibt es schon seit 1989, damals noch unter dem Namen Angelica. Häufige Line-up- und Namenswechsel markierten die Anfangsjahre von Ravn & Co. So hieß die Band unter anderem auch Minas Tirith oder Vergelmir. Die ersten beiden Alben „WITHIN“ (1999) und „TO TRAVEL FOR EVERMORE“ (2002) sang noch Kristian „Krille“ Andrén (ex-Fifth Reason, Street Talk, ex-Tad Morose und Memento Mori), seit dem Album „FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD“ (2003) ist auch Ausnahmesänger Nils Patrik Johansson mit an Bord, der bei den Schweden Astral Doors Songs schreibt und singt, und sich ebenso bei Alben von Richard Andersson’s Space Odyssey als Sänger verdient gemacht hat.

Nach „Far from the Madding Crowd“ verließ auch Lead-Gitarrist Henrik Flyman die Band, um sich fortan mehr auf seine Band Evil Masquerade zu konzentrieren.

In ihrem bislang stärksten Line-up veröffentlichten Wuthering Heights mit „THE SHADOW CABINET“ am 13. Oktober 2006 auch ihr bisher bestes und intensivstes Album.

    Within is a seriously great album. The others are all really good, but Within has a little more "moxie". Or something.

    Well, since no-one reads separate songs' boxes anyway, I think I'll post this here too: "I just god damn love the lines "But this tune that I'm destroying / Shows there's nothing more annoying / Than a desperate, desperate poeeeeeeeeeeYEEEEEEEEEAAAAHT"! :DD Nils has some unbelievable power delivering that sequence, and it's just so nicely said anyway. Why don't grand artists like Erik Ravn never realize how good they truly are? Their ambitions must be somewhere in unbelievable heights! "Oh, this song is nothing yet, I must do much better. I'm a desperate poet, WAAAH!". Fuck you. You're genius! And you have pretty much the best vocalist on earth at your disposal, and you have the unique ability to take even more out of his lungs than other songwriters that have him. So, come on now. If health provides: one last record! Or one last dozen of records! (I don't believe Erik will never read this, but that's what I feel like saying atm. :D)"

    Oh, there are news! Forums 20/3: "Hello friends, Since rumours are starting to spread about the band working on new material, I guess I should give a little input on the state of things. Unfortunately, I´m still in a very bad state regarding my health. I can basically do nothing and am enduring constant violent pains. Any kind of recovery seems very far removed right now. I´m currently waiting to talk to the doctors with regards to possible additional surgery. Bottom line is, the prospects are not very good. So, as you may have guessed, I will have to say that there won´t be any new stuff from WH in the near future. I´ve been exchanging a few song ideas with Nils Patrik, and I have a few ideas for lyrics, but that´s all. I´m not playing and I´m not recording. I´m really sorry if you´ve gotten your hopes up. But I will say this: your continuing interest in the band and your words of support mean so much to me, and I humbly thank you for it. In hope of a future for WH, I salute you!" :/

    Any updates on how their new material is coming out? I thought Erik Ravn was done for?

    Just listened to Salt. It's flawless. Yet it's only their third best album, IMO. Sorry guys; if you're Wuthering Heights, you pretty much have to surpass even perfect albums to make your best ever! :D That's tough to accomplish if they truly are to be back shortly... (My only complaints about Salt are the weak-ish production and the lessened diversity in NP's vocals compared to the previous two albums. I still think they had to finish Salt in a hurry; didn't they be late from their deadline, too?)
