Helfahrt (translated "the journey to Helheim and the land of the dead) stands for atmospheric but agressive Black Metal/Pagan Metal in the vein of the 90ies, combined with a portion of grooving Rockn..Roll as well as atmosphere and melancholy.

The contents and lyrics of the five ambitioned musicians from Munich, are basically about desperation,sorrow, death, life as well as a metaphorical view upon the germanic mythology and customs of the cultures of the alps. Live-Shows full of emotion, innovative Song-structures and merciless vocals is the trademark of the five artists, who could reach within a short period of time a high status in the Black and Pagan metal scene.

After playing with bands like Korpiklaani, Thyrfing, Kampfar or Equilibrium, the band did a nearly two weeks lasting tour with the Norwegian Viking Metal band Helheim, which brought the band to venues in nearly whole middle-Europe. After their first output “Sturmgewalt” and a contract with Twilight Vertrieb - the band signed new contracts (Soulfood/SMP) and released their second output "Wiedergang" in summer 2008.

In January 2009 the band was touring for three weeks through nearly whole Europe together with Odroerir and Gernotshagen. The third full album of Helfahrt, "Drifa" was released in early 2010 and earned good reviews and an awesome reputation worldwide.

Apparently the band is set on a halt and the members of Helfahrt are focussing their work on other musical projects such as Wraithcult, Soleil Gris and Thulcandra. .
