HELHEIM - Premiere New Video

With their ninth full-length album, landwarijaR, earning huge plaudits for Norwegian viking metallers Helheim (read the review over HERE), the band have now released a second video from the album, this time for the track "Ymr" which can be seen in the player below.
Like the preceding video for the track "Baklengs mot intet" (you can watch it over HERE), "Ymr" was directed by Guilherme Henriques, and this time the band concentrates on live footage filmed at Inside Live & Rock Café by Mathis Backe interspersed with film of some of the glorious scenery that surrounds Helheim's home town of Bergen.
"Ymr" also has a theme running through it, one that is in contrast to that expressed in the "Baklengs mot intet". As Helheim's V'gandr explains: "With "Ymr" Helheim explores the terrain that might result from the  complete enlightenment of knowledge. The tree of life is the symbol of this path and you may wonder if this enlightenment is of a positive or of a negative energy. When the One with the one eye closes it, that is when we must open up ours and see what lies ahead. "Ymr" is the primal scream, the essence of man, and to grow from there you have to climb. Whereas "Baklengs mot intet" showed no hope in its cloak of negativity, "Ymr" might kindle a tiny spark - but that's up to the eye of the beholder or should I say, the ears of the listener." Link
