Heilung is an experimental folk band made up of members from Denmark, Norway and Germany. Their music is based on texts and runic inscriptions from Germanic peoples of the Bronze Age, Iron Age and Viking Age. Heilung describe their music as “amplified history from early medieval northern Europe”.
LIFA was recorded live at Castlefest 2017.
“Remember, that we all are brothers All people, beasts, trees and stone and wind We all descend from the one great being That was always there Before people lived and named it Before the first seed sprouted.”
True story, i’m a fat P.O.S (300 + pounds) trying to lose weight, and i’ve been using this song on repeat to my daily jogging routine, the drum beat is perfect for my pace lol. Thanks Heilung for the motivation. 🙂
This goes straight to the DNA.
Manager: How many drums do we need? Heilung: Yes
I asked my husband if we could blast this while burning our large burn pile in the back yard. He said no, the neighbors might think we’re sacrificing someone. Lol
now i know why the germans are so good at techno … they have been practicing for over 2000 years.
I remember when this first came out – I was 10 years old at a bonfire with my parents. Now I’m 1,800 years old, listening to this with my great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandchildren on Youtube.
