Formed in 1993, Waylander released their debut demo, "Once Upon An Era", in early 1995. 
Mixing Irish folk music with extreme metal, Waylander were soon dubbed folk, celtic and pagan metal. 
In 1996, with the addition of a full time tin-whistle player, they released their 2nd demo, "Dawning Of A New Age"
and soon gained a prominent position in the fledgling folk metal scene.
This was cemented when they signed to Century Media and in 1998, 
their debut album was released, entitled, "Reawakening Pride Once Lost". 
After overcoming some line-up changes, Waylander signed with Blackend Records 
and released their, "The Light, The Dark And The Endless Knot", album in early 2001.
After that the band had some numerous line-up changes for several years. 
Despite this they managed to perform some notable gigs with Ancient Rites, Cathedral and Skyforger.
In 2008 Waylander inked a deal with Listenable Records and their third album, 
entitled "Honour Amongst Chaos" was released, using this time a vast array of Irish folk instruments.
In 2012 the band released their fourth album through Listenable Records entitled "Kindred Spirits".
