The band was formed in 1999, under the name "Autumn Palace" in Western Galilee, Israel. After two years if self-searching and line-up changing, the band renamed itself into WINTERHORDE and recorded one-song demo "In the land of Everfrost". In 2002 WINTERHORDE release a live recording, which has been totally sold out the same day of its release. Official 4-song demo "In Traditions of Winter" was released in 2004 by SRG productions and got a plenty of excellent feedbacks from all over the world. The demo sold very well and even was reprinted due to the big interest of fans. Opening for such monsters as Dark Funeral and Melechesh led WINTERHORDE to the top of local extreme metal scene.

In 2006, the band signed a deal with Greek Burning Star records. The collaboration resulted in mind blowing debut album "Nebula", combining melodic black with elements of death and modern progressive metal. The album got very good response from fans and media. Straight after the release, WINTERHORDE supported the album with European "Bringing the Cold" tour alongside with Finnish Catamenia as headliners. The ride included participation in Transylvanian "Maximum Rock" festival, opening for W.A.S.P and Crematory. The tour established a good fan base all around Europe, although some individuals couldn't believe that Israeli band played that kind of music.

Back to homeland, WINTERHORDE began composing a new material, based on the poem, written by band's bass player Celestial. In the beginning of 2008, Burning Star records ceased to exist, leaving WINTERHORDE without a record deal. On November 2008, the band enters studio with German producer V.Santura, which worked with such artists as Dark Fortress, Obscura and Tryptikon among others, to record WINTERHORDE's second album "Underwatermoon".

"Underwatermoon" represents more-then-one-hour epic extreme metal art, blended with progrock nostalgia and death-cold touch of North-Atlantic Ocean. A must have for every open-minded metalhead who needs hunting journey through emotions in his metal.
