Biography

Hudiksvall, Sweden (2005 – present)

Vildhjarta is a band from Hudiksvall, Sweden. The band plays in an aberrant Meshuggah-influenced musical style with use of guitar. The band is characterized by harmonic minor progressions, jarring enharmonic staccato riffs, layers of reverberant guitars and dual lead vocalists. They were signed to Century Media Records in 2011. The band’s name, Vildhjarta, originates from the Swedish role-playing game Drakar och Demoner. Vildhjärta (not “vildhjarta”) means “wild heart” in Swedish.

Vildhjarta was formed by Daniel Bergström, Jimmie Åkerström and Johan Nyberg in 2005 in Hudiksvall, Sweden. Hyped since their early days thanks to short demos that circulated the web, they have taken more than half a decade to musically craft their style of music. With the three spread throughout Sweden, Bergström, the main songwriter of the bunch, would email ideas to the others to get their feedback and suggestions. A groovy, down-tuned riff would soon become a verse. After a few more rounds of emailing, that verse would become a song. As more and more songs started to develop, the natural progression was to add more members and become a band. More members brought more input and ideas and soon their own take on metal was created.

As the songs developed and appeared online, so did a rabid fan base. They spread links to the band’s songs, promoted them on message boards and rallied behind the war cry of THALL, a word that has almost become synonymous with the band’s name.

    "Clean vocals ruined everything" uhhhh, there is literally like 3 lines of clean vocals total in their last two releases. You're being foolish if you let that ruin this fantastic band.

    Thousands of Evils, my friends... that was a fucking masterpiece. No more of that "please more bass" bullshit. That album transcends music forever.

    @DrStrangeIove You have already written it before. Btw good sound on "Thousand Of Evils'. Not as good as on "Masstaden", though, but still enjoyable.

    I beg you vildhjarta... dont let the sound on your new album be like on the EP. The Sound of "Masstaden" was 10 times better. Its heavy enough, it has nice dynamics and its pritty comfortable for the ears. The sound of the new EP "Thousands of Evils" is just ridiciously bad and totally annoying.

    Vildhjarta's new drummer, Buster Odeholm from Humanity's Last Breath, will make this band a beast. He single-handedly recorded all instruments except vocals on HLB's last album. My expectations have risen.
