Welcome to our “Psychedelic Lunch”series where we find out how deep the rabbit hole really goes and explore music and musicians from the 60’s to today. Enjoy the trip!
If you enjoy all thinks Vikings and folk music that changes your reality and transports you to another time, a singer who reminds you of the seer from the History Channels hit series Vikings accompanied with stunning sound and visuals, the band Heilung is for you.
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.
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.
“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.
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.
