Biography

Helevorn has been depressing the world with emotionally-wrought doom/dark metal since 1999.
With the first finished songs they recorded a promo cd called “Prelude” in winter of 2001. It was their presentation letter, written with a Gothic-Doom style and with a very good acceptance in the underground press, and then all the odds were against them.
After few years of songwriting and some important line up changes, in October 2005 they decided to record them at Ona Digital Studios (Mallorca), and mastered at Finnvox Studios (Finland) by Mika Jussila. The final result was a self released new Cd called “Fragments”, sounding more solid, transmitting a dark, heavy and melancholic sound, opening some new doors to the band.
Then the band was touring around Spain since November 2005 in cities like Madrid, Valencia, Alicante, Burgos, Valladolid, Guadalajara and many more, supporting bands like Dismember, Avulsed…
2009 means the recording of their second studio album, produced by Jens Bogren and Johan Ornborg, also producers of bands like KATATONIA, OPETH, DRACONIAN, PARADISE LOST, etc. Their sound became more intense, slower, darker and doomier guiding the band to a bit different direction. The album artwork was made by Robert Høyem (www.attheends.com), who knew perfectly how to transmit Helevorn’s new concept.
In January 2010 Helevorn signs with the Russian label BadMoodMan/Solitude Productions, releasing “Forthcoming Displeasures”.
