Battle Song 03:07
If I stumble along the way I will carry on I’ll fight this battle I’m here to stay I am not afraid Brothers, no surrender We’re all in this together Sisters, no surrender We’re all in this together If I stumble along the way I will carry on Nothing can hold me back I am not afraid
2.
In the wilderness I find peace In silence among the trees I hear my thoughts so loud Loud and clear, I let them fly away And I am here singing night and day Do you hear me scream? Sleeping under the open sky Stars singing lullabies I close my eyes And fall into deep slumber Ur skogen stiger månen röd som en sol Löven faller, hösten är kommen Tystnaden i skogen Det viskar i löven Hör du löven falla? Hör du fågeln sjunga? Hör du träden tala? Hör du löven viska?

Leaves falling on the ground I can feel the wind and I Raise my voice to the sky Here comes the raven flying by Longing for home On the top of the mountain I can taste the clouds and the rain I can feel the raindrops on my skin And the wind whispers secrets in my ears Longing for home Flying home

Haunted 04:49
My bleeding heart Torn into pieces on the ground No one there to save her life Everyone feared Death They stared as her soul drifted away It haunted them forever

Vintervisa 00:56
Slingorna som lyser i vintermörkret Stjärnorna Värmer min frusna själ Långt bort men ändå så nära Jag höjer armarna Värmer mitt frusna hjärta

about

Hailing from the forests of Dalarna, Sweden, Helga writes music from the confines of her cabin. Living in the wilderness with just her guitar for company has given her songwriting a unique sense of introspection. Helga tells us that the new songs are “a musical translation of my inner and physical world. I personally love reverb-drenched music and sounds, drawing inspiration from my dream world, the misty forests, and Swedish folk music.”

The record hits its heaviest peak on ‘Haunted’, with an ominous intro giving way to mighty Mastodon-style guitars and sinister, macabre lyrics. Dark and light battle it out with Helga’s honeyed vocals sitting on top of diabolical riffs and polyrhythmic grooves.

Latest single ‘In The Wilderness’ reflects on the state of the natural world from the perspective of someone that spends their life close to nature. In a time when the environment is ever more under threat, it’s only natural that meditation upon the state of the world, while full of beauty, is tinged with darkness and melancholy.

Drawing upon a wide range of influences from post-rock and metal to folk & classical, Helga propagates a unique sense of melancholy. Elsewhere on the EP on ‘Battle Song’, pounding tribal drums are juxtaposed with mournful vocals and washes of guitar noise – with its roots as much in black metal as modern pop music.
