Psychedelic rockers HIMMELLEGEME reveal new single and upcoming album details

 

Bergen's Psychedelic Rockers HIMMELLEGEME are back with "Variola Vera", the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut album "Myth of Earth".   Recorded during the late spring through late fall of 2020 at Bergen's Broen Studio, the band's latest outing was produced by Anders Bjelland (ELECTRIC EYE / HYPERTEXT) who also mixed and mastered the album.

Not quite a concept album HIMMELLEGEME described "Variola Vera" thus:

The overall themes of the album are the impact we humans have on planet earth, and the destruction we leave in our wake wherever we go. Not only in regards to the planet itself, but also to the people inhabiting it. It's not a concept album per se - the lyrics are fictional with roots in reality, but based on newer and older events seen from different viewpoints.  

Set for release on Karisma Records on the 1st October, in CD, Digital and Limited Edition LP formats, fans have today been given a taste of "Variola Vera" with the release of the single "Let the Mother Burn" which can be downloaded or streamed on various platforms at:

https://karismarecords.fanlink.to/Himmellegeme_Let-the-mother-burn

It is a single about which the band had this to say:

Let The Mother Burn was one of the first tracks that we wrote for the album. It definitely has our sound to it - a little slow paced, but also powerful and tribal. The lyrics are about being consumed by the sheer beauty and horrors that Mother Nature can provide us - it can be amazing, but also quite frightening.

Influenced by both Blues and Atmospheric Prog Rock, HIMMELLEGEME's lineup of  Aleksander Vormestrand (vocals, guitar), Hein Alexander Olson (lead guitar, slide, drums), Lauritz Isaksen (keys), Erik Alfredsen (bass, backing vocals, misc. instruments), Leiv Martin Green (drums, backing vocals), use heavy-hitting riffs, chilling melodies and melancholic lyrics, to create a dark, otherworldly, and timeless sound.

With cover art by Samantha Muljat, the track list for "Variola Vera" is as follows:

  1. Shaping Mirrors Like Smoke
  2. Heart Listening
  3. Blowing Raspberries
  4. Brother
  5. Let the Mother Burn
  6. Caligula
  7. Agafia
  8. Variola Vera
