HEILUNG is sounds from the northern European iron age and viking period. The band uses everything from running water, human bones, reconstructed swords and shields up to ancient frame drums and bronze rings in the songs. The lyrics contain original texts from rune stones and preserved spear shafts, amulets and other artifacts. Furthermore poems, which either deal with historical events or are translations/ interpretations of the originals. HEILUNG tries to connect the listener to the time before Christianity and its political offsprings raped and burned itself into the northern European mentality. HEILUNG means healing which also describes the core of their sound. It is supposed to leave the listener eased and relaxed after a sometimes turbulent musical journey.
