Biography

Dødheimsgard (also known as DHG) is a Norwegian heavy metal band formed in 1994. Dødheimsgard was originally a black metal band, but 1999's 666 International saw them change into an experimental and avant-garde / industrial metal band. In 2000, they shortened their name to DHG. During 2003, they went through some lineup changes, replacing Aldrahn (Thorns), Zweizz and Czral (Aura Noir).
"Dødheimsgard" is a contraction of three words: Død which means 'death', heim which means 'home' and gard which means (at least in this context) 'realm'. A natural translation into English would be "Realm of Death".
In 2006, they completed the new album 'Supervillain Outcast' with new vocalist Kvohst (ex-Code) which was released in April 2007 by Moonfog Productions and The End Records.
Several years past before the new masterwork was completed. Titled 'A Umbra Omega' and featuring the return of Aldrahn (Thorns/The Deathtrip) on vocals, the band's first album for new label Peaceville Records heralds a new era at the DHG asylum.
