As the days tick down to the release of HELHEIM‘s 2017 album “landawarijaR” – out January 20 on Dark Essence Records – we bring you the new video “Baklengs Mot Intet”.
Speaking about the video and track, the band said “The videos ‘Baklengs Mot Intet’ and ‘Ymr’ gives the best presentation of the new Helheim project, LandawarijaR. While the theme of ‘Ymr’ is about establishing your self through Norse arts and works, doing the metaphorical climb of Yggdrasil, the theme of ‘Baklengs Mot Intet’ describes the inner battle, the bottomless despair and endless futility experienced by a walker of the Way. While ‘Ymr’ describes the climb up and the letting go from the top, ‘Baklengs Mot Intet’ describes the fall and its possible implications.
Through these songs Helheim is continuing is exploration and modern interpretation of the darker aspects of the North-European pre christian culture, capturing the spirit of the heritage in ways elusive both to researchers and immaterial archaeologists.”
