HEILUNG's ritual is neither a performance nor a concert; it is a fully immersive ceremony that
connects its listeners with the elements of nature through music, dance, and spirituality. For a
glimpse of what to expect at an evening with HEILUNG, watch 'LIFA,' which was recorded live at
Castlefest 2017, featuring above.
HEILUNG will be supporting their 2019 release, 'Futha,' which debuted at #3 on the Billboard
Heatseeker charts and #4 on the Billboard World Music Charts, placing on a total of seven
Billboard charts within the first week of its release.
Last year, HEILUNG shared their first ever music video for the Independent Music Award-winning
song "Norupo," which is taken from 2019's critically-acclaimed release, 'Futha!' The video was
shot at the Neolithic standing stones at Les Menhirs de Monteneuf in France.
"Norupo" is composed around the ancient runic text, “The Norwegian Rune Poem.” The poem was
preserved in a 17th-century copy of a now lost 13th-century manuscript and gives a complete
description of all sixteen runes of the younger Futhark.
Speaking about 'Futha,' BILLBOARD wrote, "Tracks like 'Norupo,' which is led by female vocals, is
beautiful and melodic, and the choir and tribal percussive background of 'Othan' is trance-like."
