The debut single, entitled “The Opposed”
Zornheym is a Symphonic Extreme Metal band from Stockholm, Sweden founded and led by multi-instrumental mastermind and songwriter Zorn.
After parting ways with his former band Dark Funeral, he was determined to shake up the traditional Metal meets Symphony approach with his new band Zornheym.
Zornheym quickly grew from an ambitious idea into a dramatic musical and cinematic narrative revolving around the horrors of a mental institution and its prisoners.
An Asylum for the criminally insane, a place where time stands still and their horrific pasts continue to haunt all upon its grounds.
A SNIPPET FROM THEIR UPCOMING MUSIC VIDEO
Inspiration of the band are drawn from icons such as Dissection, Dimmu Borgir and King Diamond paired with real string orchestration and a powerful full choir accompaniment to the band’s already apparent musical and technical prowess.
Every song on the debut album have a visual accompaniment in the form of short graphic stories with further exploration of the themes as short films in place of the standard approach to music videos.
The line-up is completed by Facebreaker’s Bendler on vocals, guitarist and musical arranger Scucca, and Diabolical drummer Angst.
The debut album has been recorded, mixed and mastered at Wing Studios by Sverker Widgren, a renowned veteran of sound engineering in the Scandinavian extreme metal scene. (October Tide, Demonical, IXXI, Diabolical)
