Track: Hjelvik – Synkverving

Shelby Hjelvik

Norwegian blackened Viking metal band Hjelvik share a brand-new single called ‘Synkverving’, featuring a guest appearance from Lars Nedland from White Void and Borknagar. 

Frontman Erlend Hjelvik comments, 

This doomy little ditty was recorded during the Welcome to Hel sessions and is now released in all its glory with a brand-new mix and master courtesy of fellow countryman Endre Kirkesola (Abbath, Green Carnation). Making things sound extra Norwegian, ‘Synkverving’ features the debut of HJELVIK rhythm guitarist Remi André Nygård and awesome guest vocals and organ by Lars Are Nedland (White Void, Borknagaar, Solefald). The cherry on top of this pagan pie is an animated video created by Zak Kirwin (Ghoul, Spirit Adrift) who brings the “mound people” to life! Listen loud!”

A rousing call to arms in true viking fashion with striking lead guitar and shouty harsh vocals. Nedland sounds like a metal God and his organ playing lends a haunting possessed vibe to the metal bashing. The track never lets up and is a crashing furious heavy metal delight. More please.
