Exclusive interview with HILD

  Hild - Violent, Swedish Metal 1- Hello and welcome to Metal Music Midwest, first off, thanks for taking the time to do the interview, could you give our readers a brief description of the group?  Where is the band from? Hild - Thank you for your interest! HILD is a thrash oriented band centered around the valkyries of Nordic myth. Each song a channeling of their respective traits and energies. Eventually the theme will broaden obviously, there are not all too many valkyries left to sing about haha! It's perfectly fine listening to it as just high energy metal band to get your blood going. But it is based on my personal beliefs and spiritual practices.  There is more to it to anyone interested to find out. Some other musical influences than thrash naturally came seeping in along the work.  We just call it by the slogan "Violent Swedish Metal". So, obviously, we are from Sweden!  2- ValFreiya is the band's first full album, how long did it take to write? HILD -
