"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.

Track Name: Holy Hell
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
Track Name: Drowned By Myself
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
