HELHEIM - Premieres Track From Upcoming Album

Norway's leading viking black metal quartet Helheim premieres the single "Kaldr" from new album Rignir, due out on 26th April on all formats via Dark Essence Records.
With Rignir, which translated means Rain, the band again turned to their heritage when writing the poems that form the lyrics for the album, drawing inspiration from the ljóðaháttr, an Old Norse alliterative verse form used largely in the Eddas.
Helheim are set to appear at the Dark Easter Metal meeting in Munich on 21st April, and will join Vulture Industries and Dark Essence Records label-mates Madder Mortem for the Strange Rain European tour (tour dates are below).
Rignir sees Helheim continue to push boundaries. By maintaining the trademark harsh vocals of the past, whist developing the use of clean vocals and expanding the use of harmonies, reminiscent of bands such as Seigmen and the early works of Ulver, the album expands the vocal range of V'gandr and H'grimnir. The result is intriguing, yet familiar, and unmistakably Helheim. Carrying further the use of orchestral percussion of past releases, Rignir boast soaring guitars, atmosphere and heavy riffs, all underpinned by the signature drumming style of Hrymr. Take everything that madelandawarijaR great and double it! Helheim remains heavy, progressive, atmospheric and unique. Listen to "Kaldr" and to previously unveiled album title track in the players below. Link
