Halshug: Fantasi

Heavy hardcore punk trio, Halshug, announce the release of their third LP, Drøm (translates to "Dream"), following the very impressive previous outings of theirs, Blodets bånd (2015) and Sort sind (2016). This time the Danish band take another broad-minded step forward, and attempt to advance from the distinctive d-beat sound of their aforementioned releases, to neighboring styles such as industrial, darkwave, and post punk.

First example, Fantasi, is an immediate winner that brings a lot of genres into play, but ultimately matures into something truly exceptional and evocative of the band's avidity and artfulness.

"The whole idea is to create a medium through which we can forward true human energy," Halshug state. "It’s about lust, guts and a protest against reality. A wish of life. It’s not important to us what genre we end up playing, it just happened to be like this."

Halshug are Jakob Johnsen (bass, vocals), Mathias Schønberg (guitar), and Mads Folmer Richter (drums). Drøm comes out July 19th, 2019 via Southern Lord.
