2015 – present (2 years)
There are at least three bands, who share the name.
1) A French duo consisting of OLIVIER from CHEVEU and ARMELLIE from THE DREAMS. Their debut album contains ten tracks of Afro-beat rhythms, cinematic soundscapes and post-punk aggression, almost sounding as if John Carpenter, RZA and The Slits made a record together. Sort of.
2) A Flemish Pagan Black Metal band.
HEIMAT was founded in 1999 by Strop and Twissak. The band has his heathen themes rooted in the own cultural heritage. Musically Heimat was influenced by Storm, Enslaved and Kampfar. The name “Heimat” stands for Fatherland in a lot of indo-german countries. In 2002 Storm (Gotmoor, Bunker, Paragon Impure, Moonlight Empire,…) joined Heimat on drums, which resulted in the “Promo 2002” (de Witte Buedts). This 3-track demo was only sent to some labels. In 2003 Virus aka Clauwaert (Gotmoor, Dead Inside Asylum, Voidkom,…) joined on vocals. This time we recorded our second demo “Erfgoed”, which was well received throughout the underground. After that Heimat was put on hold for various reasons. In 2007 Strop deceided to rehearse again. Storm decided to do the guitars and Virus agreed to compose the intro and outro on “Sibbevader”. Twissak is not an active member anymore but is still the composer-writer of many songs and lyrics in the background. ADHD (ex-Bellator, Crossvaults,…) joined Heimat on drums. With Noctiz (Gotmoor, Paragon Impure, Dead Inside Asylum,…) as a live member to do the second guitar Heimat played at NephereX-fest and Pestpop. With “Sibbevader” Heimat is back to claim its place!
Heimat released a second full-length, titled "Heem", in May 2012.
3) A German Industrial band.They are paying a tribute to the German "Heimat" movie series.("Eine Deutsche Chronik")
4) An American electric folk/semi-acoustic with post-rock influence project based in LA, California.
