HELHEIM: 'We Need To Let Metal And Odin Catch The Kids Before Jesus Does!'

A couple of Norwegian media outlets have posted video footage of HELHEIM's performance at a public kindergarten earlier today (Monday, April 21).

The Norwegian Viking metal band celebrated the release of its brand new studio album, "Kaoskult", by playing acoustic versions of two songs from the CD "Det Norrne Alter" and "Svart Seid" at Klosteret Barnehage. In addition, the band also told tales from Norse mythology, which has been of great inspiration for HELHEIM since the band was formed in 1992.

Elisabeth Alnes of Klosteret Barnehage previously stated about HELHEIM's appearance at the kindergarten, "Lots of people get this all wrong, and think metal and Satanism are two sides of the coin. These are great guys, and Norse mythology is a very important part of our cultural heritage."

To mark the release of "Kaoskult", HELHEIM has made a second song from the album available for free download.

"Kaoskult" is HELHEIM's sixth release, and its second on the Dark Essence label. The nine-track album presents a new maturity from the band, who have explored a more varied, and melodic side to their music. Written by guitarist Thorbjrn, with lyrics by Vgandr, "Kaoskult" was produced by Bjrnar Nilsen, who also contributes guest vocals.

HELHEIM debuted some of the new tracks during the band's recent tour with fellow Norwegians VULTURE INDUSTRIES and German black metallers DARK FORTRESS.
