Hello! I have just released a new track if Askheimr. This one is a bit more atmospheric I guess. Soon upon youtube and bandcamp. Thanks to Katrine Neple for the artwork! Im sorry for my long absence here but I dont feel writing anything unless there is something to write about! makes it more special in my opinion... ;) I just have a period were I cant get myself to do anything, sadly.. so I have some sort of breake from everything. But, I will let you know that I am trying to write another album for Eldamar and I really want to do it. I am trying to explore different ways for approaching the writing. And I have changed the style quite a lot. This far I have made a few riffs and ideas. And the sound will be rawer, heavier, more older styles of synth and growly guitars. It is still a question if I would consider writing lyrics to the songs. To support the riffs, i think it will be more than an option to do so. But for now enjoy our music from Askheimr!
Hey! I did an interview some weeks ago where I explain this and that when it comes to both Askheimr and Eldamar. Information about how the whole thing started, recording, influences and such. https://www.nocleansinging.com/2019/04/04/an-ncs-interview-mattias-hemminby-eldamar-and-askheimr/

Hello! I thought it would be a fun thing for you to have the first ever recordig of Spirit of the North. I have now publicised the Demo track upon my Bandcamp page. Recorded early summer in 2015. The process was just me recording my amp through the computer mic. I didn't have a bass guitar back then so I had to use a plugin for the bass too... The cover is a picture I took half a year after. It is a pucture of my hometown Askim. I felt better about the picture then anything else I could use because it was a special period in my life. I was very inspired at this time. I had a lot of stuff in my head that had to get out there somehow. Seems like i was just floating in this dreamworld and had so many ideas and thoughts. And it is from a time and a town where everything started. https://eldamar.bandcamp.com/track/spirit-of-the-north-demo
Hey! So this is our second Askheimr practice. We just became a full groupe. Ola (Bass), Karelius (Drums), Erlend (Guitar), Astor (Keyboard), and Me (Guitar, Vocal). This is far from the best... But I just have to show you my update in this project, as it have been a hell of a time since last time I wrote to you...! At the moment we just try to get to know each other and try to work together. I hope I will get in contact with the right record companies soon! But for now, I will thank you for all the support.Thank you for buying my albums! You have been awesome! I might start to look into an another full length of Eldamar again. I really want to do this! But for now, hope you have had a great yule, and happy new year to you!
Hey again! Here is a small teaser of the last song (demo version) and outro I will have on my album of Askheimr. Much simular to Eldamar material in my opinion, thats why the song seemed great as the last song on the album. I am currently working on Ambient tracks if I can make it fit in to the rest. Enjoy! PS: I am still looking for a Keyboard player. If anyone of you who play keyboard/piano that live around my area like Oslo Norway, just shout out!
Hey! For some weeks ago I was making a music vodeo with Gaia Epicus. I have been making guitar solos for their new album. We were transporting eight cabinets on a trailer and used this Fight Club to shoot. Great fun! The band has a lot of albums. Trash and Power Metal. This is their new single for the new album "Alpha & Omega".
Hello! Here is an update. Im about finished with all the music for Askheimr. So now im working on the lyrical part of the album. Otherwhise, nothing have really changed. I still have three guys that is possibly future members. I hope we will soon do some rehersals of the songs. I still need a keyboard player... I am thinking about doing another album of Eldamar when I have gotten things under control. I have been wanting to do that for a while now. I have no idea about how it will sound. I only know that I will do something very different. Even the most signature sound and atmosphere will be different. That might fly in the face for some of you. But I grow, and so do the music and the world around me. I just have to see what i will make of it. But im sure it will turn out great in the end! I made some videos of Askheimr a while ago that is uploaded on instagram. Hope you like it! Instagram; eldamarofficial
Hey! Long time since I wrote to you. But I dont write unless I have something to write about :P We have printed more t-shirts. It is the same design as last time of the "A Dark Forgotten Past" album. I hope for a new design next time! But now we have more sizes to choose from. We made just a few in S and XXL for the ones who want that. Things are going pretty well for my part. I am still working with the Askheimr project. I have soon completed all the music for an album. Then I have a lot of lyrics to write. I really hope for a proper recording at the end of the year. Then I have to find the right record label. As members goes, I have a guitarist and possibly a bassist and a guy on drums. I have of course not found a keyboard player yet as it is unfortunantly a difficult task. I am very happy with the songs so far. Allso, very good that the Atmospheric Black Metal Albums is back on track! For more videos and pictures of what I am doing with my projects and life, you can follow me on Instagram. @eldamarofficial https://eldamar.bandcamp.com/merch/t-shirt-a-dark-forgotten-past-print
https://www.instagram.com/p/BiKSYGsBCcK/ Visited Fossum Bridge Defence Galleries at the border of my hometown Askim and Spydeberg. I did my vocals for A Dark Forgotten Past in that Bunker. This is a small fortress that was used during WWII. The German soldiers came with busses over the bridge. The busses was totally destroyed by the norwegian firestorm. They tried to cross the river on the ice. But we opened the hydropower plant at Solbergfoss and most of the soldiers drowned by the flood. The bridge were rebuilt first in 1961 and 1992 because of the damage after the atempt to blow the bridge.
Hey! It as been a while since I have been writing anything. But here I am again ;) First of all, I must thank all of you who have ordered my albums and supported Eldamar so far! I hope the shipping went well. Therefore, I think you deserve to know what I've been doing the lately. As some of you know, I am doing a new project called Askheimr. This will be my main project forward if it goes well. I still have a lot of work to do before recording an album. My main reason why I do this is to sort of "get out there", play live and really do what I was ment to do. And with Eldamar i dont think that is the greatest option. Things are going very slowly, but better slowly then too fast I guess. I really want to make something great! I guess the genere of the project is melodic death/black. We are currently two members, two guitarists. And we need a drumer, bassist and a keyboard-player.

Hello! https://youtu.be/__FbyjJBnm0 Here is a preview of the last song "New Understanding" on my new album A Dark Forgotten Past! As far as I know it will be released 1. desember this year. I guess this song is the one that is quite different from what I have done before. The rythim and key changes, as well as the brutal part at the end is what makes this song a fine ending of the album. Here are the rest of the titles of the songs. It might look like a history when reading them in a row, but thats because it is ;) I am very exited for the release of this album. And i hope you are too. Enjoy! ;)
