A warning sign and a lamentation… invoking what once was and never will be again! Heimdalls Wacht is the sound and the fury of our present era, reproaching the modern world in its pervasive conformity and mindless stupidity. Clamoring wrath! Shrieking desperation! Sonic weltschmerz! Withdrawn melancholy! Heimdalls Wacht’s music, lyrics, and overall concept provide an outlet for a deep-rooted uneasiness, a discomfort in the face of an empty zeitgeist and the monotony of the masses, treating with contempt today’s consumer society that venerates hollow idols and cannot grasp true spiritual richness. Heimdalls Wacht’s lyrical concept is thus of the utmost importance to the band – and to be sure, so is the music, which comes along in a most distinctive and expressive blend: on the basis of raw and at the same time melancholic and melodic Black Metal, a number of stylistic influences have entered the sound throughout the years, from Folk and Doom, via progressive and melodic Classic Metal, through Thrash and Death Metal.
