Featured Band: Helsott


American Pagan Metal?  What does that mean?  Americans pretending that they are Vikings?

No, Helsott is so much more than that.  Lyrically, Helsott pay homage to all things pagan, not just Scandinavian Paganism.  American Mythology, Scandinavian Mythology, Germanic Mythology, Ancient Egyptology, Celtic Mythology, Greek Mythology, and all things Heathen.  Paganism was and still is relevant all around the world and is the main backdrop in the Theater of Helsott.  Musically, if you threw Folk Metal, Death Metal, Symphonic Metal, Thrash Metal, Classical Music and Rock n’ Roll into a smelting pot and poured its contents onto the world…that world would scream Helsott.  Meaning “Fatal Illness” in Teutonic, Helsott have already carved a piece of the Metal World for them-selves and plan on carving deeper with their beautifully brutal, pagan themed brand of metal for years to come.

On a National level Helsótt has toured the US and Canada with Paganfest alongside Ensiferum, Tyr, Heidevolk, and Trollfest…for Rock The Nation USA.  In 2015 Helsott toured the US in support of their album “Woven” twice.  The first being a summer headlining tour and the second in support of Arkona and Heidevolk on the Pagan Rebellion tour.

On a local level Helsótt has supported national and international acts such as: Finntroll, Ensiferum, Moonsorrow, Opeth, Katatonia, Trollfest, Heidevolk, Turisas, Nile, Ex Deo, Dio’s Disciples, Tyr, Korpiklaani, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Nevermore, Barren Earth, Suidakra, Eluveitie, Arkona, Alestorm, Metsatöll, Kill Devil Hill, Carach Angren, Fear Factory, Rotting Christ, Epica, Death Angel, Hate, Kampfar, Vreid, Keep of Kalessin, D.R.I., Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, Necrophagia, 1349, Warbringer, Mayhem, Destruction, Heathen, Goatwhore, Possessed, Woods of Ypris, Decrepit Birth, Origin, Dillinger Escape Plan…and many more.
