Short Bio & Review: Wallachia is a music project from Steinkjer and was formed by Lars Stavdal in 1992. The band recorded a demo in 1996 which got very positive feedback from the underground metal scene at that time. Shortly after that a re-recording session (in studio) of the Demo was released in the form of an EP named simply Wallachia. The first full-length was released in 1999. Since then the band practically did not released any new composed material although the band was still active. In 2009 after delays the second full-length album was released, this time the style changed in a more symphonic way but the music was still recognizable as Wallachia. There is enough material written for new albums that are planned to be released soon.

Additional Info: the project members are also active in other projects, most notable beeing Golden Dawn.
