Formed two years ago, HIMMELLEGEME ‘s music is influenced by both Blues and Atmospheric Prog Rock, which together combine to create an otherworldly and timeless sound. With their heavy-hitting riffs, chilling melodies and melancholic lyrics, written in both Norwegian and English, HIMMELLEGEME create music that depicts past events in their own lives, as well as in the lives of others.
HIMMELLEGEME’s lineup of Aleksander Vormestrand on guitars and vocals, Hein Alexander Olson on lead guitar, Lauritz Isaksen on keyboards, Erik Alfredsen on bass, and Thord Nordli on drums, have spent the past year exploring new sounds and putting the finishing touches on their new material. Recorded during the fall and winter of 2016 at the Broen Studios in Bergen, HIMMELLEGEME ‘s as yet-untitled album is set for release during 2017, and, according to the band, fans can expect that ? With eyes closed and the mind transported to caverns of serenity “they should be ready to ?experience a slight conversion from everyday mentality, to a spacious state of inebriation? “
