Formed in Linköping, Sweden, in 2001, and most frequently described as a DSBM band, it is not easy to pin down the exact genre in which to fit VANHELGA’s music.  The band’s name itself means “Profane”, and its musicians have found the perfect vehicle through which to express the dark and disturbing emotions that inhabit their, often twisted, minds.   The lineup of founder J. Ottosson, aka 145188 (ex-LIFELOVER (live session musician), ex-SKOGSTRON) on Bass, Guitars and Vocals, J. Gabrielson (ESKAPI, ex-LIVELOVER) on Vocals, J. Ejnarsson (TAKETH) and Wadström (ex-SKOGSTRON) on guitars and D. Franzén on drums, create a sound that whilst being as cold and sinister as their collective backgrounds and psyches would suggest, also has moments of melancholy, which led one reviewer to say of  “Längtan” “It’s not often that you can describe a black metal release as beautiful, but that’s exactly what Längtan, the latest offering from Sweden’s Vanhelga is.” The digipack edition of “Längtan” was released on Art of Propagnda earlier this year.

In October VANHELGA will be performing a series of shows in Germany alongside HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY and AGRYPNIE.  Routing as follows:

22 Oct:  Steinbruch Theater, Darmstadt
24 Oct:  From Hell, Erfurt
25 Oct:  K17, Berlin
26 Oct:  Bambi Galore, Hamburg
