Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 24th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

With Längtan set for release on 28th April, Swedish band Vanhelga have recently unveiled the details and artwork (which can be seen above) for the upcoming album. Längtan, which will be the band’s third studio album, takes longing and death as the theme, exploring the idea that death is more of a beginning than an end, allowing one to be free from the restrictions of society that are placed upon us. The album also explores the idea that death is not something to be feared but rather to be longed for.

The album will be released in CD format on the Art of Propaganda label on the 28th April, and in vinyl format on Carnal Records on a date as yet to be confirmed.  Artwork for Längtan is by the Spanish artist Juanjo Castellano. Tracklisting as follows:

1. Svartsint ömhet
2. Där evigheten inväntar mig
3. Evig förändring
4. Med mina andetag
5. Joyless
6. Låt snön falla
7. Kärleksförklaring
8. Vansinnesvardag
9. Narkotisk uppgivenhet
10. Eternal night
11. Förbarma
12. Exploderande känslostorm

Vanhelga release digital single ahead of full-length album

Posted in News with tags , , , , on 24th February 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Today (24th February) sees Swedish band Vanhelga release their new digital single Där Evigheten Inväntar Mig ahead of their upcoming full-length album Längtan. Där Evigheten Inväntar Mig, which translated from the Swedish means “Where Eternity Awaits Me“, sets the tone for Längtan, which is scheduled for release in Europe on the 28th April in CD format on the Art of Propaganda label, and in vinyl format on Carnal Records on a date as yet to be confirmed. Där Evigheten Inväntar Mig is available direct from Vanhelga on Bandcamp at this location.

Vanhelga was formed in Linköping, Sweden in 2001 by J. Ottosson, aka 145188 (ex-Lifelover (live session musician), ex-Skogstron), who, unable to create the kind of music he really wanted to, found a group of like-minded musicians and together they set about bringing their vision to life.   Aside from Ottosson on Bass, Guitars and Vocals, Vanhelga‘s lineup consists of J. Gabrielson (Eskapi, ex-Lifelover) on Vocals, J. Ejnarsson (Taketh) and Wadström (ex-Skogstron) on guitars and D. Franzén on drums.
