Heilung

Amplified History / Neofolk - Denmark / Germany

Heilung Band

HEILUNG‘s ritual is neither a performance nor a concert; it is a fully immersive ceremony that connects its listeners with the elements of nature through music, dance, and spirituality. For a glimpse of what to expect at an evening with HEILUNG, watch ‘LIFA,’ which was recorded live at Castlefest 2017, HERE.

HEILUNG will be touring in 2022 in support of their 2019 release, ‘Futha,’ which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Heatseeker charts and #4 on the Billboard World Music Charts, placing on a total of seven Billboard charts within the first week of its release.

In 2020, HEILUNG shared their first ever music video for the Independent Music Award-winning song “Norupo,” which is taken from 2019’s critically-acclaimed release, ‘Futha!’ The video was shot at the Neolithic standing stones at Les Menhirs de Monteneuf in France. You can watch the stunning video at THIS LOCATION.

“Norupo” is composed around the ancient runic text, “The Norwegian Rune Poem.” The poem was preserved in a 17th-century copy of a now lost 13th-century manuscript and gives a complete description of all sixteen runes of the younger Futhark.

During 2020’s Game Awards, HEILUNG announced that they will be working with U.K.-based gaming company Ninja Theory on the soundtrack for their upcoming game, ‘Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II.’ The announcement trailer for the new game features HEILUNG‘s song ‘In Maidjan,’ which is taken from their debut album, ‘Ofnir.’ Watch the trailer HERE.

In addition, they secured another video game collaboration with MY.GAMES and Booming Tech for the new season of the ‘Conqueror’s Blade’ video game, ‘VII: “Wolves of Ragnarok.” The trailer for the game, featuring the track “Galgaldr,” can be found HERE.

With lyrics recorded in Old Norse and inspired by Völuspá – a prophecy of Ragnarok from the Poetic Edda – HEILUNG’s atmospheric sound will immerse players in a dark new era for ‘Conqueror’s Blade.’ HEILUNG will also see their name being eternalized in one of the new combat map locations, which is now officially called ‘Heilung Fjord,’ and serves as a place for healing. More info on the game can be found HERE.

HEILUNG’s music was featured in a trailer for the final season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ series. It can be viewed HERE.

Additionally, the collective’s music was also previously featured in season six of the television show ‘Vikings.’ Episode 10 of Season 6 features multiple fragments of the tracks “Fylgija Ear,” “Hamrer Hippyer” and “Alfadhirhaiti.” A snippet of the music use in one of the ‘Rus Army’ scenes can be found HERE.

Speaking about ‘Futha,’ BILLBOARD wrote, “Tracks like ‘Norupo,’ which is led by female vocals, is beautiful and melodic, and the choir and tribal percussive background of ‘Othan’ is trance-like.” You can read the full feature, which includes an interview with HEILUNG‘s Kai Uwe Faust, HERE.

Upon its release, ‘Futha’ has been met with international critical acclaim. Here is what the press is saying:

“There’s an earthy aura surrounding the record, not just from the sounds of nature but the primal energy it evokes, trying to wake something long lost to the ravages of time… the power and conviction of these chanted tales connect on a deeper level than mere riffs. You just have to let it in.” – Kerrang

“‘Futha’ is consequently more a gentle, comforting blessing than it is an album: an escape from contemporary concerns and a reminder that there is still magic in this world.” – Pure Grain Audio

“‘Futha’ leaves no stone unturned in its quest to experiment and bring its own true experience to the table. That said, it is easy to fall into a trance and with eyes closed to be transported to the past world that Heilung brings back to life. That is why Cryptic Rock gives Futha 4 out of 5 stars.” – Cryptic Rock 

“Indeed, I have no better word for the music than ‘spellbinding.’ The combination of the hide-drum and electronic rhythms, the contrasting vocals of Faust and Franz, the mystical keyboard layers, and the dark and ethereal melodies is wonderful.” – No Clean Singing

Heilung have just the ticket with their new record, ‘Futha’ (Season of Mist), which layers ancient Germanic chants six feet deep for total disembodied bliss.” – Free Williamsburg

“Hypnotic and evocative, this preview of Heilung’s upcoming album ‘Futha’ hints that another tradition-steeped masterpiece from the fascinating collective is to come.” – Revolver Magazine
