WISTERIA has opened for the globally recognized band Black Dahlia Murder and have played with most of the Icelandic metal bands including Severed Crotch, Beneath, Celestine, Changer, Dark Harvest, Palmprint in Blood, Embrace the Plague, Endless Dark, Darknote and many more. WISTARIA are known for their massive wall of distorted guitars, deep surge of screams, melodic and emotional solos, high-tempo double bass and blastbeats.
