HEILUNG Shares Mood Video for New Song, “Tenet”

Enigmatic ritual music collective HEILUNG will be releasing its highly-anticipated third full-length, ‘Drif,’ on August 19, 2022 via Season of Mist! The band has recently revealed the third single from the offering, “Tenet,” which can be found along with a mood video at THIS LOCATION.

The band explains, “HEILUNG comment on the track: “Our third single release is a palindrome. All individual musical parts, melodies and instruments (and even at times the lyrics) play the same both forward and backwards. The song is based on the “Sator Square”, the earliest datable two-dimensional palindrome, first found in Herculaneum (Italy), a city buried under the ashes of the erupting Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, at that time part of the flourishing Roman Empire. What is particularly interesting with this palindrome is that not only does it read forwards and backwards but also vertically in both directions.

“The unusual melody of the piece is created with a special code system employing numbers, runes and Latin letters taken from the square itself, and deciphered in a complicated system to give birth to Heilung’s first melodic palindrome. Love from Heilung”
