Guitarist Jesse J. Heikkinen (The Abbey, Iterum Nata) and vocalist King Aleijster de Satan (King Satan, Saturnian Mist) have teamed up for a mind-bending progressive black metal project, HENGET. The emerging Finnish band is now premiering the title track from its upcoming debut full-length, ‘Beyond North Star,’ along with a music video. The clip can be found at THIS LOCATION.
HENGET comments, “The titular song of the album grasps perhaps the best the band’s psychedelic and progressive elements in the balance of solid artistic vision and chaotic channeling. Take the astral journey of the spiritual transformation and watch the new music video for our third single, ’Beyond North Star!'”
Drawing inspiration from the world of occult and the ways of ancient Shamanism, ‘Beyond North Star’ depicts a violent hallucinatory journey to the depths of the mind and beyond with a psychedelic outlook.
HENGET will be debuting its first full-length, ‘Beyond North Star,’ on May 19, 2023 via Season of Mist!
Pre-orders are now available HERE. The album can be pre-saved on various digital platforms HERE.
The album artwork for ‘Beyond North Star’ was created by M.T. Salminen.
