Official press release: Today, the Norwegian blackened Viking heavy metal solo-band Hjelvik has released a new song and music video for their third single from the upcoming album Welcome to Hel, out on November 20 via Nuclear Blast. Watch the victorious video saga "Glory of Hel" animated by Adam Avilla of Flesh & Bones in San Francisco, California which includes a guest performance by Matt Pike from the bands High on Fire and Sleep here: Frontman Erlend Hjelvik comments on the song: "I'm excited to finally unveil 'Glory of Hel' in all its...glory!  It's one of the hardest rocking tracks from Welcome to Hel and is visited by the mythical Matt Pike (High on Fire & Sleep) who lends his killer voice and face melting guitar solo. To top that off, there's a badass animated music video created by the disgustingly talented Adam Avilla. The video depicts a twisted take on the death of Odin's son Balder and the ensuing events of Ragnarok with an animation style reminiscent of cult classics like 'Heavy Metal' and 'Fire and Ice.'. Thanks to both Matt and Adam for their amazing contributions and I hope people love it!"
