Biography

Hans Erik Dyvik Husby (born 15 June 1972), also known as Hank von Helvete, Hank, Hertugen and Hærtis, most famous for being the former lead vocalist of the Norwegian death-punk band Turbonegro.
While not explicitly addressed to date, the name Helvete was adopted due to its meaning “hell” or “a place of suffering” in Norwegian, He is nicknamed Hank von Hell. Though a speculative conclusion, it should not be ignored that Helvete was also the name adopted by an Oslo music store, founded by the late Euronymous of ill-fated Norwegian band Mayhem. The store and its basement record label, acted as the de facto hub for Norway’s black metal scene until just before Euronymous’ murder in 1993, the same year that Husby joined Turbonegro.

Husby’s band is most well known for their tongue-in-cheek humor dealing with homosexual aesthetics and punk rock antics, and the formation of a genre they label “death punk”. The band formed in the late 1980s and put out a few records before disbanding in 1998 when Husby’s heroin addiction made him unable to perform. After going through rehab, Turbonegro reunited in 2002, but Husby and the band “laid it on ice” in 2010. The main reason for this was his new lifestyle as a sober family man.
