This is often said about Heilung. I goes back to the same pre-historic sources and 'roots', literally. Shamanic, druidic, nature-religion, bronze age or further back, when humans first started making music using their voices (also the shamanic guttural throat singing style stems from that) and drumming with wooden sticks on trees or tightened animal skins. Many Native Americans like this music (seen some YT comments) as it reminds them of their own roots and they hope that Heilung one day also do a US tour. Native Americans should create a similar band with their root music in the US, would be cool to see it.Interesting in that it also sounds like Native American music. The singing style and drums/percussion sound very similar to me.
Cool. Did not expect for anyone round here knowing them at all. I like posting music here of which I think members here don't know it yet. Anyway, many would not even know this group in a German-only forum.Yes, I used to have one of their albums before I gave away all my vinyl to charity.
Thanks for posting. I could listen to an album of that on long drives. I like it that it's sung in German, as the appropriate language for the shamanic ritual and meaning to come through.Another brandnew one. From Heilung. Heilung means Healing. Shamanic Ambient Nordic Folk is the music.
Dance of the Lemmings was the album which I had. I also got into the likes of Terry Riley (A Rainbow in Curved Air) and Pink Fairies (Never Never Land) as well as Tangerine Dream, Aphrodites Child and Kraftwerk. Not forgetting Pink Floyd, Yes and Genesis of course.Cool. Did not expect for anyone round here knowing them at all. I like posting music here of which I think members here don't know it yet.

It is not German, HM. They are multilingual and very multinational (their homebase is in Denmark) and mostly sing in Norse languages and often in old (Nordic) Runes. So the lyrics are - quite literally! - very old indeed. Of course, we could say it is Germanic in a way, because Nordic/Scandinavian and German languages have common roots (same as Dutch or English). They also have some rare English parts (see video below about a song how war came to a formerly peaceful world and society). So far I detected not a lot of contemporary German, except in one song where their metal / deep throat singer (who is the only German in this band) does a shamanic divination ritual on stage. And yes, their bandname is German (Heilung = Healing).Thanks for posting. I could listen to an album of that on long drives.
