Symphonic Extreme Metal band from Stockholm - founded and led by multi-instrumental mastermind and songwriter Zorn, who in 2014 left his former band, the less musical challenging Dark Funeral, determined to shake up the traditional Metal meets Symphony approach with his new band Zornheym. Zornheym is a dramatic musical and cinematic narrative that revolves around the horrors of a mental institution and its prisoners.
Inspiration drawn from icons such as Dissection, Dimmu Borgir andKing Diamond is paired with real string orchestration and a powerful full choir. A comic book and short films are in the making as well, which will enhance the storytelling and also make for an artsy collector's item.
The Swede's line-up is completed by Facebreaker'sBendler on vocals, guitarist Scucca and Diabolical drummer Angst. They have just finished up there first recording in Wing Studios, and are now on the hunt for a record deal and hope to be able to sign with an appropriate partner soon.
Zornheym - Where Hatred Dwells And Darkness Reigns
Emil Dragutinovic(former drummer of Marduk and The Legion) comments on Zornheym: “From what I´ve heard so far, Zornheym is writing some really interesting parts for the upcoming album. I´ve got a sneak peak and the song structure is appealing, production fits the music and you can easily tell that there has been a lot of hours spent on making this! I believe we might have one of the best bands evolving in 2016 for this genre!”
Lars Palmqvist (singer of Scar Symmetry)comments onZornheym “I was recently in the studio recording choir parts for the new band Zornheym. From what I have heard this will turn out to be one hell of an album. I'm so excited to hear the final mixes!”
