Biography

There are two Norwegian bands called Helheim. There is also a German Helheim, who released just one demo in 1995 and split-up afterwards.

The first Norse Helheim, founded in 1992 and disbanded in 1996, played industrial black metal and released three records: the 1994 demo “Helheim”, the 1995 demo “Walpurgisnatt” and the 1996 EP “Fenris”

The story of the second (more famous) Helheim also started in 1992, when V’gandr and H’grimnir had the mutual idea of creating extreme metal music. But metal cannot be made without someone to fill the drumchair, and soon after Hrymr came along to complete the band. Already from the very beginning Helheim had high ambitions, and even without much experience they weren’t afraid to enter the stage. They played several festivals in Bergen just to get live experience from the start.

In the mid of 1993 Nidhogg joined Helheim, and now they felt a demo should see the light of day. The summer went by, and in the fall the same year they released their debut demo simply entitled “Helheim”. The demo never made its way outside the borderlines of Norway as the band realized that the released material simply wasn’t good enough.

Soon after they started writing new and more innovative material for their upcoming demo. It was at this point Nidhogg left the band as he wasn’t willing to sell his soul to Helheim. In mid 1994 “Nidr ok Nordr liggr Helvegr” (Netherwards and Northwards lies Helheim) saw the first ray of light, and it was at this point that the german label Solistitium records (now Millenium music) got in touch with Helheim.

    They threw one of the best gigs I've ever seen here in Finland a few weeks ago. Too bad that the most of the audience seemed so bored. Such an amazing band, were we talking about Jormundgand, Åsgardsfall.. or anything in between!

    Ace of Spades cover... Really good one, I admit. But still, metalheads are so easy sometimes. Just play Ace of Spades and everyone's happy and the pit turns crazy :D.

    Heiðindómr ok mótgangr is the best Norwegian Black metal album I have heard in years. It's a shame they don't garner the same ammount of attention and recognition as other more flammable bands. [2]
