Norwegian Viking metallers HELHEIM are set to celebrate their 20-year history with a special concert at the Inside Rock Café in their hometown of Bergen on Friday, November 2. The event will also feature local bands and special guests, and, according to the band, the venue, with its intimate surroundings, has been especially chosen so that it becomes a true celebration amongst fans and friends. However, after receiving many messages from fans outside of Norway who would obviously not be able to attend, HELHEIM has decided to stream the performance live on its web site at and the stream will begin at precisely 10:00 p.m. Norwegian time, and will remain available to be viewed for a period of time after the event.
NARROWHEAD, whose frontman has frequently guested on vocals for HELHEIM, along with the all-girl rock band FAIRY and punk rockers BEINKJØR, will also play at the event. There will be other guests throughout the evening, but according to HELHEIM, "We prefer to keep it all as a surprise. It wouldn't be a real party if there weren't a few surprises for everyone!"
Rather than being one of the manufactured Viking acts that proliferate on the scene these days, HELHEIM has, throughout its 20 years of existence, always remained true to its Norse heritage. As one of the oldest of Norway's Viking bands, HELHEIM, with its majestic epic songs, conveys an accurate and proud sense of past, not just through its lyrics and music, which often includes the use of traditional instruments, but also in its stage performances, which feature VJ effects that enhance the themes and concepts explored by the band.
