Helheim stream new album ‘raunijaR’

By on 30 November 2015

Helheim are streaming their new album ‘raunijaR’ which is released 4 December 2015 on Dark Essence Records which comes some four years since the release of acclaimed ‘Heiðindómr ok mótgangr’ and shows how the band has spent the past few years experimenting and building on their unique take on the Viking metal genre.

Vocalist and bassist Vgandr comments:

“Lets begin with the opening track ‘Helheim 9’ which is the last in the line of the Helheim tracks where ‘Hrymr’ in particular has been the creative force, combining his unique creativity and symbolism which overwhelms all previous parts resulting in an honourable closure.”

“The title track ‘raunijaR’ is a continuation from ‘Helheims Heiðindómr ok mótgangr’, unrelentlessly driving the confronting yet familiar black metal sound in the vein of Dualitet and Ulver. ‘Aasgards fall part 3 and 4’ will be the final and vital link to the completion of the ‘MCD Aasgards fall’ both lyrically and musically. Completing the album is the solemn track ‘Odr’ which gives the album the worthy and grandeur ending it deserves.”
