Five musicians that have played in various bands together for 20 years finally joined forces in 2016 to create heavy metal in the traditional sense of the word. Hunter represents powerful heavy metal, averse to subgenres and stereotypes. A combined century of experience and all sorts of influences come together as a mighty brew that tastes like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Manilla Road, Metal Church, Omen and Cirith Ungol.

Hunter's self-titled debut was released in 2019 and has been critically acclaimed by the press and heavy metal enthousiasts across the globe. The album was listed on Sentinel Daily's Top 100 Albums of 2019 (Australia) and Denim & Leather's Top 30 Metal Albums of 2019 (USA).

American glam metallers Steel Panther highlighted Hunter as one of the most promising acts in underground heavy metal. Besides playing headlining shows, Hunter has played support shows for international metal bands, such as Riot V, Victory and Tygers of Pan Tang. Hunter's song 'Dominion' can be heard in the Flemish motorcycle racing movie 'Rookie' (2021). In 2022, Hunter made a memorable guest appearance in Larian Studios' Panel From Hell, performing a metal version of the 'Baldur's Gate 3' song 'Weeping Dawn' and their own 'Knight of the Black Rose'. In September 2023, the band released their second studio album, titled 'Rebel Angels Rise'.

"Hunter bewees in de Asgaard dat ze niet enkel een album van internationale allure uit hebben, hun concerten voldoen aan dezelfde standaard." - Rockportaal, The Netherlands
