VANHELGA – New Digital Release Out Now

Sweden's Vanhelga, one of the more extreme and uncompromising exponents of DSBM, and a band that seems to exist at the centre a maelstrom of creative output, has released a new digital album Happiness, which is available directly from their official Bandcamp page where it is also available at a special price, including wallpaper, for the first few days, as well as from the usual digital distribution and streaming outlets. Vanhelga's founder, J. Ottosson commented on the new release with words: "My constant need to write and record is a by-product of my mental state, and I am the first one to admit that whilst recording this I was under the strong influence of drugs. This resulted in a piece of work that is an expression of the effect of the use of self-destructive tools like drugs and self-mutilation in order to feel "happy". Although we have a new Vanhelga album coming out on Art of Propaganda later in the year, I had a lot of material ready that I wanted to get out before then, and so we thought we'd do a digital self-release. Particularly since some of the material on Happiness might not necessarily fit in with the more "traditional" Vanhelga sound and fans might find themselves a bit surprised by some of it." The band is also set to appear on an upcoming four-way split with Ofdrykkja, Psychonaut 4 and In Luna which will be released jointly on Art of Propaganda and Talheim Records on the 6th April. Titled Urban Negativism, Vanhelga will contribute two new tracks and a Lifelover cover to the ten-track album, which will first be released in a digipack format, with a vinyl version likely to appear later. Their next live appearance will be at Kings of Black Metal in Alsfeld, Germany on the 24th April. Link
