Wrapped In Mist

Forged in the moonlit forests of Sweden, HELGA are a big, invigorating blast of fresh air. Although the music on "Wrapped in Mist" displays a kinship with everything from WARDRUNA and NYTT LAND to ELUVEITE and MYRKUR, there is something quietly unique about this record.

Everything Destroys You

They were always a neat and perfect package, those pesky DEATHSTARS.

Death, Where Is Your Sting?
