In 2015 Vanaheim was founded. The name of the band, Vanaheim is derived from one of the nine worlds in Nordic Mythology and home of the Vanir. The Vanir are a group of gods associated with fertility, wisdom, nature, magic, and the ability to see the future.
The music of Vanaheim is an energetic mixture between typical, catchy folk metal and the harsher sound of pagan metal. On a foundation of thunderous drums and bass, the guitars and orchestration are combined to create an epic sound. To finish it, the harsh vocals varying from high screams to low grunts will complement the sound of Vanaheim.
With lyrical themes dealing with mythology and tales of yore, Vanaheim is ready to party with pounding riffs, brutal vocals, blasting drums and authentic, epic orchestration. Their first EP ‘The House Spirit’ was released in 2017. In 2022 Vanaheim is back with a first full length. This album ‘Een Verloren Verhaal’ is entirely in Dutch.
