Heilung 2019 2 by Ruben Terlouw [@Wuodans] HEILUNG - "LIFA - Krigsgaldr" - LIVE

TERMINE

So. 03.11.2019 Einlass: 19:00 h Beginn: 20:00 h
HEILUNG are now announcing the album title for their upcoming record. The new offering will carry the name 'Futha', and is scheduled for release in May 2019 via Season of Mist.

HEILUNG comment on the meaning of the album title: "The majority of full rune set inscriptions start with 'Futha', and is known to us as the first four letters in all runic alphabets. It is considered that our forefathers saw magic potential in engraving the full rune line, but there is also great significance in the beginnings. Science has no key for the meaning of only engraving the first couple of letters yet, but there is, of course, a surplus of theories. One of the theories we found inspiration in, is that 'Futha' holds the meaning of fertility and female gender. As 'Ofnir' focused on war and masculine notions, the great healing power of female wild strength is evoked in Futha. Those who have been present at a birth or have seen lionesses hunting know the spirit, and we welcome and embrace it in the sounds that were born during the creation of 'Futha'."

 

Each live appearance of HEILUNG is a spectacular affair, where the lines blur between musical performance, ancient pagan rituals, past, and present. The Danish band found a fitting name for their opulent stage set and huge production: amplified history. Their viewers use other words such as "amazing, mind-blowing, goose bumps, unforgettable" and Metal Hammer UK even listed HEILUNG's much talked about show at the Midgardsblot Festival among the impressive Viking chieftain burial mounds at Borre, Norway as one of "The 10 best gigs of 2017"!

As a tribute to the overwhelming demand of their fast- growing host of supporters, HEILUNG released a complete live show under the banner of 'LIFA', which was recorded at Castlefest 2017. Since this recording sold out as quickly as the band's self-released debut full-length, 'Ofnir’, Season of Mist is making both albums available again in various formats.

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

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

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.
