Norwegian blackened Viking metal band Hjelvik unveil a brand new single, called “Synkverving”, featuring guest appearance by Lars Nedland from White Void and Borknagar. The single follows the release of Hjelvik’s debut album Welcome To Hel in late 2020 and is also strongly based on Norse mythology and Viking themes, paired with the raw and sinister tone that is typical for the band.
Frontman Erlend Hjelvik comments:
“This doomy little ditty was recorded during the Welcome To Hel sessions and is now released in all its glory with a brand new mix and master courtesy of fellow countryman Endre Kirkesola (Abbath & Green Carnation). Making things sound extra Norwegian, “Synkverving” features the debut of rhythm guitarist Remi André Nygård and awesome guest vocals and organ by Lars Nedland. The cherry on top of this pagan pie is an animated video created by Zak Kirwin (Ghoul & Spirit Adrift) who brings the “mound people” to life! Listen loud!”
