Hellige - Demo

Hellige from Argentine plays a mix of cavernous doom and murky black metal. The songs on the demo are constantly evolving, giving some parts an almost progressive feel, but without loosing any of the atmosphere. Dynamic and creative drumming often help drive the songs more than the guitars do. Very effective vocals ranging from extremely tortured screams to deep death metal bellows.
Overall, the vocals serve much in the way as the lead guitar, adding color and texture to the song rather than carrying the all of the melody as is seen in other bands.
The quote is from this great review from The Oak Conclave. Read the review and check out this interesting demo.

  1. Hey, thanks for the plug and for mentioning Hellige. They are a great band that should definitely be getting the attention and they rest of the band's stuff is equally fantastic.

    Keep up the great website Max!

    1. Thank you, and you're welcome.

      Today's useless fact is that in Danish "hellige" means holy. Now you know.
