Helsott premiere new lyric video
pre-order “The Healer” now at:
HELSOTT premiere the first taste from their forthcoming EP, The Healer, with a lyric video for the title track, created by Scott Rudd (Opeth, Aborted). https://youtu.be/VpmUMbXByh8
Helsott, whose exotic sound mixes death metal with pagan influences, recently signed with M-Theory Audio, who will release the group’s new five-song EP on April 28th, featuring stellar artwork from Felipe Machado Franco (Blind Guardian, Iced Earth). Pre-order The Healer CD now at www.m-theoryaudio.com/store.
“We are proud to share the title track from our new EP via this awesome lyric video,” states singer Eric Dow. “This was a fun record to make and we look forward to hitting the road soon and playing the song live.”
Since forming seven years ago, HELSOTT – whose name means “fatal illness” in Old Norse – has paid homage to pagan cultures and mythologies while keeping true to their American influences. The group’s unique mix of folk metal, death metal, symphonic metal, and rock first caught the attention of audiences on a large scale during the 2013 Paganfest North American tour, where they performed with Ensiferum, Tyr and Trollfest. The group built further momentum the following year with the release of their debut full-length, Woven, behind which they toured alongside Arkona and Heidevolk.
HELSOTT now returns with The Healer, a five-song EP recorded in part at Southern California’s Trench Studios (Intronaut, Abysmal Dawn) and mixed and mastered by J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm, Ex Deo). The release spawned from the band’s successful crowd-sourcing campaign to fund the recording of Woven, when they offered to write a song about a fan who pledged a certain amount. A patron named Doc – who was indeed a doctor – took them up on their offer, and the band liked the final result so much that they decided to write and record additional new songs to be issued in conjunction.
