HILD, a new discovery for me, but not the names that come with it. Lars Broddesson, Marduk, Black Altar, Funeral Mist and last but not least Odium Records. My black heart is already beating “highest level”.

The Valkyries of Norse mythology, who also gave the songs their names, form the concept of Lars Broddesson's debut. And these shieldmaidens accompany me now, each in their own way, in a true battle. Here there are twelve times "straight in the face". Track after track, fuel is poured on the fire again and again and the death metal battle seems to have no end.

Finest thrash from Sweden, which defines the album as a whole, but still allows black influences and also completely carries me away rhythmically, especially with the lady “Hrist”.

Beröm för denna debut … jag höjer mitt horn.

Lars Broddesson about HILD and the album ValFreiya:
“HILD, meaning battle/strife, is a war and battle themed project centered around the Valkyries of Nordic mythology. Each song named after, and honoring, a specific Valkyrie, channeling their respective traits. HILD came to life in a flash one late summer evening while walking entranced through the landscape. I was instructed by my higher powers to head back to my studio and complete a 2-minutes song in one session. The aim was to do so as Thrash Metal under the banner of HILD, a band name I´d had in the back of my head for some time. The divine spark of inspiration hit immediately, and I had most of the song and entire concept ready in my head before I was back at the studio to record. The song, ValFreiya, Took 5 hours roughly. I got a taste for it and decided to keep it going and not let any song be longer than 2:30 or take more than 6-7 hours to complete. A few weeks later I had 12 songs, an album, finished barely knowing what happened.”
