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 reaches far back in time to the Northern European iron age and Viking period to create their sound experience. The band utilizes 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 artifacts. 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 tries to connect their listeners with a time before the coming of Christianity and modern political ideologies.
