Album Review: Heilung – Futha

Olde Worlde European folk troupe Heilung resurrect the ancient ways on the glorious Futha…

While the world tears itself apart either searching for progression or reverting back to ‘the good old days’, one band is taking a further step back to a common ancestor, and a deep-rooted love of Mother Nature. From using the power of natural sounds like ice and fire to utilising human bones as instruments, Heilung (German for ‘healing’) connect with the spirit of Iron Age Scandinavia. Clocking in at 74 minutes, it’s not something you can jump in and out of; it’s a journey, applying ancient texts and poetry to tribal drums, horns and throat-singing to create an immersive experience. There’s an earthy aura surrounding the record, not just from the sounds of nature but the primal energy it evokes, trying to wake something long lost to the ravages of time. Having more in common with world music than the rock sphere, the power and conviction of these chanted tales connect on a deeper level than mere riffs. You just have to let it in

Verdict: KKKK
