Wardruna wins the Best Underground Band, sponsored by World Of Tanks.

Also nominated were Scorpion Child, Deafheaven, Alcest and Beastmilk.

TeamRock caught up with Wardruna at The Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2014 to talk about them winning Best Underground act. We find out how it feels to win, especially as they don’t identify themselves as being a metal band and more!
