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. Hunter has played support shows for international metal bands, such as Them, Chevalier, Riot V and Adam Bomb and made it to the Belgian final of the Wacken Metal Battle in 2019.

"Hunter est donc un nouveau projet à prendre comme une délicieuse friandise épicée, qui se retourne vers le passé pour y piocher son inspiration." - Metalnews, France
"The rollercoaster that ‘Hunter’ provides throughout those seven songs, is one that takes you back to the highlights of eighties pure heavy metal." - Metal Inside, Belgium
