DESTROY ALL LINES PRESENT:
Ritual collective HEILUNG will be performing at the Big Top for the first time ever in March 2023.
Since its inception in 2015, the enigmatic ritual collective has been paving melodic paths to the past with their unique and mystifying sound. Evading all conventional genre tags and the confines of any specific labels, the group aptly self-describes their sound as “amplified history,” emphasizing their ability to connect modern society with the rudiments of humanity’s beginnings through music.
Featuring authentic and archaic instrumentation that ranges from rattles and ritual bells to human bones and throat singing enveloped in a foundation of heavy, rhythmical drumming, Heilung's captivating brand of music is far from primitive. Producer and founding member Christopher Juul implements subtle electronic elements that elevates the musical atmosphere and provides an in-depth and layered soundscape.
Heilung's success has been unprecedented, achieving milestones in its few short years of existence that many do not see in a lifetime. The collective already had rapidly been growing a buzz upon the self-release of their first full-length, ‘Ofnir,’ in 2015, but their dizzying upward trajectory really took off from the moment they set foot on the stage at Castlefest in 2017 for the now-legendary debut of their live ritual. Luckily for those who were not fortunate enough to bare witness to this magical event, the full ceremony was captured on film, having since been viewed by tens of millions of fans across the globe.
