band started in 1999 in Palma (Mallorca, Spain), with Samuel (guitars), Josep
(vocals) giving the rst steps and completed the actual line-up with Xavi
(drums), Kike (keyboards), Sandro (guitars) and Guillem Morey (bass). With the
rst nished songs they recorded a promo cd called “Prelude” in winter of 2000.
It was their presentation letter, written with a Gothic-Doom style with female
vocals, reminding bands like TRISTANIA or THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, and with a very
good acceptance in the underground press.
After few years of intense work, the band worked with new songs, and they
decided to record it at Ona Digital Studios (Mallorca), and mastered at Finnvox
Studios (Finland) by Mika Jussila. The nal result was a new Cd called
“Fragments”, self released in October 2005, sounding more solid, and get also
transmit a dark, heavy and melancholic sound. “Fragments” has obtained
excellent reviews in several Metal Magazines, then, HELEVORN was touring around
Spain since November 2005 in cities like Madrid, Valencia, Alicante, Burgos,
Tarragona, Valladolid and Guadalajara.
The band was asked to appear on “December Songs” a tribute to Katatonia,
released in December 12th 2006 by Northern Silence Productions.
In November 2007 the band toured with SWALLOW THE SUN in their rst Spanish tour
including one gig in Portugal, then, Helevorn had the privilege to play at
Dutch Doom Days 6 (Rotterdam, Netherlands).
2009 means the recording of our second studio album “Forthcoming Displeasures”,
recorded in March at Urban Studios in Palma, produced by Jens Bogren and Johan
Ornborg, also producers of bands like KATATONIA, OPETH, DRACONIAN, PARADISE
LOST, etc... taking an important step in their musical style, emphasizing a
more intense and heavy sound, being more forceful and deep, becoming second
best Doom Metal album of the year at Metalstorm.net
The russian label BadMoodMan Music released the album on February 2010, getting
excellent reviews, making the band to introduce themselves into the
international scene, forming part of one of the most important festivals in the
gothic music and culture, the Wave Gotik Treffen (Leipzig, GER) and Devilstone
Open Air (LT), Patior Ergo Sum (Prage, CZE), Madrid is The Dark Fest and
playing again at Dutch Doom Days X (NL). Also in 2011 the band played in
Barcelona with MOONSPELL in their european tour.
The 22 of september 2014 the band releases their new third album entitled
“Compassion Forlorn” (edited again by Solitude/BadMoodMan), recorded and mixed
at Psychosomatic Studios by M.A. Riutort and mastered by Jens Bogren. Eight
tracks full of human decay from our most deepest sentiments, composing an album
that has returned the meaning of an evolution in the compositions and in the
band's sound reaching excellent reviews and placing the band in a good position
in the Doom Metal worldwide, also thanks to the “Burden Me” video release.
After the release of “Compassion Forlorn” the band played in several gigs and
festivals over Europe such as Gothoom Open Air (Slovakia), Metal Over Malta,
Doom Rotten Death (Berlin, GER), Madrid is the Dark Fest IV, supporting
Draconian in London, touring around Eastern Europe during ten days supporting
the Danish band Saturnus, Full Metal Holidays (organized by Wacken), etc.
And it’s been during the summer of 2018 that the band has recorded its fourth
full-length album, doing the same formula as the previous one (Psychosomatic
Studios with M.A Riutort + Jens Bogren mastering the disc). The result is
‘Aamamata’, that is the song that Death sings every day in the Mediterranean
Sea, which has become a desolate pit for human lives. The album is going to be
released on January 23rd of 2019 again with Solitude/BadMoodMan. It’s a bit
more epic, more intense and it keeps the personality of the previous albums.
The contributions have been great. Heike Langhans of Draconian has sung in a
song, like Júlia Colom, and Jaume Compte played the bouzouky and baglama.
Guitar solos played by Pedro Zubiri.
