Formed February 2010…Helsott, meaning “Fatal Illness” in Old-Norse, are a Melodic Death Metal band from southern California. The band proudly pay homage to pagan cultures and ancient mythologies while keeping true to their American influences. In 2013 the band embarked on their first North American tour as part of the Paganfest festival tour line-up which included Ensiferum, Tyr, Heidevolk, and TrollfesT. In 2014 the band successfully crowd-funded their debut full length album titled “Woven” and was self released to great reviews all over the world. 2015 saw the band touring the U.S. again on a summer headlining tour in support of “Woven” and a fall tour supporting Arkona and Heidevolk. In 2016 Helsott recorded their follow up EP titled “The Healer” which was recorded in part at Trench Studios and mixed and mastered by J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm/Ex Deo). January 2017 Helsott signed to M-Theory Audio owned by former President at Century Media’s Marco Barbieri and are gearing up for future tours.
