VANHELGA - New Single Released, Sophomore Album Out In April

Swedish band Vanhelga have just released a digital single "Där Evigheten Inväntar Mig" (in Swedish: Where Eternity Awaits Me), ahead of the release of the band's sophomore full-length album Längtan, which is scheduled for release on 28th April in CD format via Art Of Propaganda label and in vinyl format on Carnal Records on a date as yet to be confirmed.
Vanhelga were formed in Linköping, Sweden in 2001 by J. Ottosson, aka 145188 (ex-Lifelover, ex-Skogstron), who, unable to create the kind of music he really wanted to, found a group of like-minded musicians and together they set about bringing their vision to life. Aside from Ottosson on bass, guitars and vocals, Vanhelga's line-up consists of J. Gabrielson (Eskapi, ex-Lifelover) on vocals, J. Ejnarsson (Taketh) and Wadström (ex-Skogstron) on guitars and D. Franzén on drums. Whilst it would be easy to classify Vanhelga as a black metal band, in reality that would be too restrictive definition. It's true that lyrically the band explores the darker side of humanity, a subject much loved by the genre, indeed, the band's name itself means "Profane", but within Vanhelga's cold and sinister music can be found distinctive melodies and melancholic moments that lull you into a false sense of security and drag you into a dark reality.
Vanhelga have been confirmed to play a series of live dates in Germany in October alongside Agrypnie and Harakiri For The Sky. Routing as follows below. Link
