Hellvar @ Airwaves 2012 - A Review by Grapevine

Compared to the two previous examples of callow youth, Hellvar have definitely been round the block a few times and had a feel of an indie rock version of The Expendables (To emphasis this point, here’s a lovely video of a young Heiða Hellvar singing back in the ‘90s with the band Unun!). This may seem snarky, but there’s a point to this. Despite their “experience,”  they rocked with more attitude, balls, desire, and played as if their lives DEPENDED ON IT, than people who were nearly half their age. And because they were such committed pros, they were actually ready 10 minutes early and managed to get an extra song in their set! True, some parts of their set music lacked finesse (their band member Gary The Laptop finally committed hara kiri on stage, forcing the band to drop their electro parts), but when they managed to hit the high end two part harmonies on “Falsetto,” it almost made my hairs stand on end.

Hellvar digital distribution by Ching Ching Bling Bling

Hellvar was formed in Berlin in 2004 when Elvar (Dys, Heiðingjarnir) and Heiða (Unun, Dys, Heiðingjarnir) decided to participate in the electro-scene there. The two of them played with a drum-machine, and in this format they wrote songs for their first album, „Bat out of Hellvar“, released in 2007. Back in Iceland Hellvar evolved from the electro-punk-duo to a full-blown five-piece rockband.
In 2011 they put out „Stop that Noise“, an album that spread the word and their music to a much broader group of listeners. Today Hellvar has become somewhat of a rock super-group. Along with Elvar and Heiða there‘s Alexandra Ósk banging guitars and singing, Birkir (I Adapt) drumming, and Haukur (Morðingjarnir) bass-playing. Together they form a guitar-rock-entity that flows all over like a newly erupted lava. As a live act, Hellvar is erm, „lively“, and a very happy bunch, and you can expect anything.
The future of the Hellvar-kids is bright!
