Holy Hell 07:34
His deep and black eyes, His words full of empty voices, In that moment they echoed in my head, And the river arrived full Thanks, I can breathe, When you elevate my soul, When you put your hand on my forehead His deep and black eyes, His voice full of empty words, In that moment they echoed in my head, I begin to feel destroyed Please stay away from me, Lies that sink my life, Lies, the river stagnates You’ve already found what you wanted from me Now is my time, you'll never stay here I want to throw you into that river It's me, holding your awful head is getting near, you will pay for all your deeds Your holy hell has just begun I will burn the flesh from your bones No more lies, no more love Please stop and look back we were up, and now we're fucking down Thanks, I can't breathe, I'm going to destroy your life Your holy hell has just begun I'm going to tear your putrid flesh from your bones No more lies, no more love Please stop and look back we were up, and now we're fucking down Your holy hell has just begun A river of lava will take you from this earth No more lies, no more love Please stop and look back You will die in darkness, too late to return Your holy hell, a jail for your mind And your soul will suffer for all you did

Tied to my mind To escape seems difficult It’s too cold And those hands hold me too strong Drowned by myself Drowned by myself Now I start to see the sun It's all a matter of faith Although the rope is broken I start to find my ascension Drowned by myself Drowned by myself I'm dragged by those cold waves and I do anything to stay At the bottom of that deep sea Being consumed drowned by myself I'm not able to see the shore I'm sure I'll never breath again Swallow the water Contaminated by the sorrow I am strangled With the insides of my future I’m lost from my way Contaminated by the sorrow Drowned by myself My throat is clogged I can not breath My soul is pushing me down I need to stand up but the weight is too much Swallow the water Contaminated by the sorrow I am strangled With the insides of my future I’m lost from my way Contaminated by the sorrow I’m lost Drowned by myself

Golden Snake 09:06
Like the waves at sea I´m here and then disappear like the stars at the sky my shine came late to your eyes I repeat the old words same old story until I leave a golden snake that bites you and poisons you deep to the soul I will not stay but I´ll return just like the waves out sea Like the sun I grow old (but) I will burst brighter than before I will burn, everything and forever I´ll be alone I´m the cursed spiral of life you´ll die and reborn ten thousand million times Everything you have lost is closer than before you’ve seen through the sun (that) my light brings death if you surrender before me Everything you have lost is closer than before you’ve seen through the sun (that) my light brings death if you surrender before me I will not stay but I´ll return just like the sea waves at sea You´ll die and reborn ten thousand million times

Decaying Sky 11:02
Derived in their sick and cold mind The chains are always short And these days will be again A mortuary temple I am swallowed by the moon I'm back and you willl never remember me It's a picture you've never seen Must change that sad feeling That's the crowd lift Look those eyes Behind the mountain A Decaying sky Let's pray for A doomed finale Please keep me close I’m ready to fly Decaying sky Trying to stay, I want to stay awake The meaning of life Give me your sick blood I'll bathe my soul Look those eyes That's the crowd lift Behind the mountain A Decaying sky Let's pray for A doomed finale Please keep me close I’m ready to fly Decaying sky Trying to stay, I want to stay awake The meaning of life Give me your sick blood I'll bathe my soul I'm trying breath Through my throat, I can feel that blast I try to hold on to life, My voice is dying I hope it's a dream, that it's only in my mind I'm trying breath Through my throat, I can feel that blast I try to hold on to life, My voice is dying I hope it's a dream, that it's only in my mind A Decaying sky I'm trying to stay awake I'm lost again to find the way My weak hands without strength A decaying sky I'm trying to stay awake I am silent waiting for my fall My weak hands are burning A Decaying sky I'm trying to stay awake A Decaying sky unable to find the way I'm trying breath Through my throat, I can feel that blast My voice is dying I am silent I give up that fear waiting for my fall I'm still fighting but these shadows are closing all the doors The light is going out Waiting my fall I am silent Where can I’d be better than underground with you I am silent A Decaying sky I’m waiting for my fall I am silent A Decaying sky I’m waiting for my fall

When we least expect it We fall to the void (The) moment arrives Fear of feelings We want to escape Vulnerability We´re in strange territory And we´re getting lost We´re getting lost Destiny rules That unite us And it takes us away Fear of feelings Filling my head Destiny rules That unite us And it takes us away After that last breath Nothing will be the same There is no way To go back Show me How to kill my senses Help me Not to faint The last drop of spills And it was diluted Sleepless nights To get there After that last breath Nothing will be the same There is no way To go back Show me How to kill my senses Help me Not to faint After that last breath Nothing will be the same There is no way To go back again The last teardrop it spills And it was diluted Sleepless nights To get there Horizon of tears Pain burns inside me I just want to Anesthetize my life Horizon of tears Pain burns inside me I just want to Anesthetize my life After that last breath Nothing will be the same There is no way To go back Show me How to kill my senses Help me Not to faint never Show me How to kill my senses Help me Not to faint Show me How to kill my senses Help me Not to faint

Band picture by Susi Legidos.

"Hela´s new opus “Vegvísir”, that takes the name of the viking compass, is their 3rd LP (4th studio work) and the first one with vocalist Ayla Mae Coghlan. We must take the album name as a metaphor of the constant evolution of the band, finding their own way in the search of the perfect blend of melancholy and heaviness, melodies and darkness.

Been driven by a brilliant rhythm section of drums and bass, the guitars create the landscapes, sometimes beautiful-sometimes eerie, and the keys add the ethereal touch; but among everything shines Ayla´s voice, being the “banshee”who verbalizes lyrics of angst, sadness and pain."

Highly recommended for fans of the Gathering, Anathema, (mid) Katatonia or Neurosis.
