Vanhelga - Happiness MCD
Neue EP der Schweden Vanhelga. Commenting on the new release, VANHELGA founder J. Ottosson, aka 145188 (ex-LIFELOVER (live session musician), ex-SKOGSTRON) had this to say: "My constant need to write and record is a by-product of my mental state, and I am the first one to admit that whilst recording this I was under the strong influence of drugs. This resulted in a piece of work that is an expression of the effect of the use of self-destructive tools like drugs and self-mutilation in order to feel "happy". Although we have a new VANHELGA album coming out later in the year, I had a lot of material ready that I wanted to get out before then, and so we thought we'd do a digital self-release. Particularly since some of the material on "Happiness" might not necessarily fit in with the more "traditional" VANHELGA sound, and fans might find themselves a bit surprised by some of it". Recommended for fans of: Lifelover, Shining, Ofdrykkja, Kall, Psychonaut 4, Silencer, Dissection.
