New Music: HELGA – Battle Song

  • New Music: HELGA - Battle Song

Swedish label Icons Creating Evil Art have scored yet another winner from their small but diverse roster with Battle Song, the darkly entrancing new track from HELGA.

Check out the video, which was filmed in the forests near her home town Dalarna in Sweden.

HELGA has worked with death metal bands in the recent past and so you can see what that synergy comes from. The brooding presence and starkly exposed yet uplifting emotions on Battle Song find a fine vehicle not only primal feel to her vocals, but also in the pounding rhythms and funereal pace of the arrangement.

However, it’s not a sombre sounding song lyrically, HELGA creates a sense of defiance and determination in her fight to help save the environment as she sings: ‘If I stumble along the way, I will carry on, I’ll fight this battle, I’m here to stay I am not afraid’.

Battle Song is out now via ICEA and can also be streamed on Spotify and Soundcloud.
