Hjelvik (Ex-Kvelertak) Releases Uncensored Version Of His “Glory Of Hel” Video

Hjelvik (ex-Kvelertak) has released an uncensored version of his video for “Glory Of Hel.“ You can check that out below. “Glory Of Hel“ features Matt Pike (High On Fire, Sleep) and it will appear on Hjelvik’s new album “Welcome To Hel,” which is set to be released on November 20. Hjelvik previously commented:

“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!”
