Heilung Collaborated with Gaming Brand Ninja Theory on ‘Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II’

World music outfit Heilung will be working with U.K.-based gaming company Ninja Theory on the soundtrack for their upcoming game, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. The announcement trailer for the new game, which has just premiered at this year’s Game Awards, features Heilung’s song ‘In Maidjan,’ which is taken from their debut album, Ofnir. Watch the trailer now!

Speaking of the collaboration, Heilung comment, “It is with the uttermost joy and deepest respect that we can finally reveal: Heilungis collaborating with Ninja Theory on the soundtrack for ‘Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II.’ From the very first meeting with co-founder & Chief Creative Ninja Tameem, Commercial Director Dominic, and Audio Lead David, we discovered that although we work on very different platforms, the core is very much alike. Both Heilungand Hellblade are deeply inspired by nature and history, and aim to alter your state of mind. We are looking very much forward to present this hybrid child, born from a meeting between ancient spirits and the technology of tomorrow.”

Heilung previously announced a long-awaited North American headlining tour, bringing their mesmerizing live ritual to states and Canada for the first time ever! Within 72 hours of ticket sales going live, every venue that was originally announced had completely SOLD OUT. To accommodate demand, a second show in New York City as well as a show in Los Angeles were added, while the Chicago show was moved to a larger venue. The updated and final itinerary can be found below.

Speaking of the tour, Heilung previously commented: “Heilung is proud to announce our first tour in North America. Like our forefathers 1000 years ago, we will cross the ocean and set foot on the land they called Vinland. Ticket sales begin Friday the 11th of October 10 EST. Come join the ritual.”

Earlier this year, the band’s music was featured in a trailer for the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. It can be viewed here. 

This was not the first time HEILUNG’s music has been featured in a commercial, as “Krigsgaldr” was featured in a 2018 commercial for the Adidas x Alexander Wang collaboration. Watch the commercial here:
