Hellvar was formed in Berlin in 2004 when Elvar (Dys, Heiðingjarnir) and Heiða (Unun, Dys, Heiðingjarnir) decided to participate in the electro-schene 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!
