FEATURED BAND: HEILUNG

IMPORTANT: The contents of this post are determined by the specification set by the originating site in its RSS feed. We do not cut and paste

HEILUNG means “healing” in the German language and this also describes the core of the band’s sound.

The listener is supposed to be left at ease and in a relaxed state after a magical musical journey that is at times turbulent.

HEILUNG reaches far back in time to the Northern European iron age and Viking period to create their sound experience. The band utilises many means – from running water via human bones, reconstructed swords and shields up to ancient frame drums as well as bronze rings – in their songs.

HEILUNG‘s lyrics contain original texts from rune stones, preserved spear shafts, amulets, and other ancient artifacts. Furthermore the band uses poems, which either deal with historical events or are translations and interpretations of the original texts.

HEILUNG have self-released their debut full-length, ‘Ofnir’ in 2015 and a live album, entitled ‘LIFA’ in 2017.

Any attempt to link the band with or bring their music into a modern political or religious context is pointless, since HEILUNG try to connect their listeners with a time before the coming of Christianity and modern political ideologies.
