on Napalm Records

Pre-Order HERE!

This Friday, February 24, 2023 sees pagan folk metal masters HEIDEVOLK release their brand new, seventh studio album ‘WEDERKEER’ via Napalm Records.

In a world of myths, nature and legends of the Veluwe region of the Netherlands, the band’s upcoming concept album – based on the interpretations of the runes – is a powerful odyssey, deeply rooted in metal and folklore. With dual clean vocals, irresistibly catchy songs, traditional instruments and fast metal riffing all fueled by their folkloric fire and pagan pride, HEIDEVOLK delivers an uncompromising sound and musical adventure. ‘WEDERKEER’ (meaning to “return” or “revive”), makes no exception, and proves why the Arnhem-based six-piece is one of the best, unrivaled and most exciting bands of their genre and beyond. 

“De Strijd Duurt Voort” is the final single ahead of HEIDEVOLK’s upcoming record release, and merges folkloric soundscapes, fast-paced riffs and huge choirs. This is folk metal power at its best!

“As the release day approaches, we release our fourth and final single from our new album ‘WEDERKEER’“, the band comments. “’De Strijd Duurt Voort’ is an epic narrative of a soldier’s battle against himself in a war that is not his own. And as fitting today as it ever was and ever will be: The battle rages on and on. Let the fury of this song captivate you as we are gearing up for the release of ‘WEDERKEER’!“

Since their impressive 2005 debut, ‘De strijdlust is geboren’, HEIDEVOLK have taken the heavy music scene by storm, conquering stages throughout the world with their very own brand of pagan folk metal. Following their latest offering, the much-acclaimed, ‘VUUR VAN VERZET’ (2015), this Friday, the band will celebrate the release of their new masterpiece in glorious style, with a series of live dates listed below!

WEDERKEER was recorded at Sandlane Recording Facilities, mixed by Joost van den Broek and mastered by Darius van Helfteren. HEIDEVOLK knows how to perfectly release proud hymns and direct, in-your-face metal songs, and the addition of broad choirs and various folk musicians on vocals, violins, cello, bukkehorns and more traditional medieval instruments, makes ‘WEDERKEER’ not only a bombastic folk and pagan metal record, but a glorious album return for HEIDEVOLK!
