Some bands you just have to see live if you want to get the full experience — Rammstein and Ghost are two contemporary touring bands that come to mind — but one outfit that more people should catch in person if the music catches their ear is Heilung.
Having released their latest album Drif earlier this year, the band have been touring North America with their (mostly) period appropriate musical instruments and methods in tow. Though their stint throughout the continent is coming to an end very soon, the group also has dates coming up next month in Europe until December 18, after which point they’ll tour Europe for a small seven day excursion.
To help more people get a better idea of what the experimental folk/folk metal adjacent band is doing live these days, we sent Alison Webster Photography to the Keller Auditorium in Portland, Oregon to take the strikingly evocative images below.
*Drif *is currently available and can be picked up at your local record store or streamed online. If you’d like to catch Heilung live, you can grab tickets for any of the dates below.
