Ex-Kvelertak vocalist Erlend Hjelvik recently launched his new project Hjelvik. The project came out of the gate strong as hell with "North Tsar", and is continuing that feat of strength with the blackened new single "Helgrinda". The single is now streaming alongside a lyric video created by Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Napalm Death).
"'Helgrinda' is one of my personal favorites on the album and is sung entirely in Norwegian," said Hjelvik. "It’s one of the more black metal leaning songs on the album and so it felt appropriate to write the lyrics in my native tongue. The lyrics revolve around ancient Scandinavian burial rites and chronicles a fateful journey to the Norse underworld Hel.”
