Speaking about ‘Futha,’ BILLBOARD wrote, “Tracks like ‘Norupo,’ which is led by female vocals, is beautiful and melodic, and the choir and tribal percussive background of ‘Othan’ is trance-like.” You can read the full feature, which includes an interview with HEILUNG‘s Kai Uwe Faust, HERE.
Upon its release, ‘Futha’ has been met with international critical acclaim. Here is what the press is saying:
“There’s an earthy aura surrounding the record, not just from the sounds of nature but the primal energy it evokes, trying to wake something long lost to the ravages of time… the power and conviction of these chanted tales connect on a deeper level than mere riffs. You just have to let it in.” – Kerrang
“‘Futha’ is consequently more a gentle, comforting blessing than it is an album: an escape from contemporary concerns and a reminder that there is still magic in this world.” – Pure Grain Audio
“‘Futha’ leaves no stone unturned in its quest to experiment and bring its own true experience to the table. That said, it is easy to fall into a trance and with eyes closed to be transported to the past world that Heilung brings back to life. That is why Cryptic Rock gives Futha 4 out of 5 stars.” – Cryptic Rock
“Indeed, I have no better word for the music than ‘spellbinding.’ The combination of the hide-drum and electronic rhythms, the contrasting vocals of Faust and Franz, the mystical keyboard layers, and the dark and ethereal melodies is wonderful.” – No Clean Singing
“Heilung have just the ticket with their new record, ‘Futha’ (Season of Mist), which layers ancient Germanic chants six feet deep for total disembodied bliss.” – Free Williamsburg
“Hypnotic and evocative, this preview of Heilung’s upcoming album ‘Futha’ hints that another tradition-steeped masterpiece from the fascinating collective is to come.” – Revolver Magazine
