Having risen out of different bands and backgrounds around Turnhout, Belgium, Vortigyn leaps forward by the end of 2011. At that time, Ester (vocals), Joris (grunts and guitar), Wannes (bass guitar), and Günther (drums) welcome Cisse (guitar) into their band.
Song writing is blossoming in early 2012, and, as a result, they try to define and re-define their sound. While definitely female fronted and surely metal, they incorporate some influences that are not immediately 

 associated with most female fronted metal bands. That is, Vortigyn is less of a gothic metal band, and tries to mix different ingredients, such as: power riffs, heavy sound, grooves, experimental and rock influences, while still using classical high female vocals and deep male grunts. It's more Lacuna Coil or even Evanescence than Nightwish, so to speak. Mostly, Vortigyn is a band that is interested in melody and songs as a whole. 

Finally, having played their newest songs for several audiences in the late summer of 2012, Vortigyn decides the time is right for a debut EP. In October 2012, the band travels to the north of the Netherlands, where they spend a week in the double impact productions studio. The result is this self-titled first EP: Vortigyn.
