HELSOTT – America's leading pagan metal band – has unveiled a new music video for the song “Helsott.” The track appears on their debut full-length, “Woven,” which will be reissued this Friday (Nov. 13) by M-Theory Audio in celebration of the group's 10th anniversary. The video – designed by Raf Ortega of Ecliptic Visions – can be viewed at HERE.

Says vocalist Eric Dow, “The song ‘Helsott’ embodies the essence of death knocking on your door. With all of the death that we have seen in 2020, it seems like the perfect time to reissue it with a lyric video. The song both aggressively and beautifully articulates the experience of death. Some die alone, others with loved ones by their side, and some are even self-sacrificing. This song ambitiously confronts the inevitable fate we all share.”

Originally released in 2014, “Woven” has been newly remixed and remastered by J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm, Misery Index) and features striking fantasy artwork by Felipe Machado Franco (Iced Earth, Blind Guardian). A limited-edition, 180-gram white wax pressing of 200 hand-numbered copies will mark the album's first-ever vinyl release. The CD, meanwhile, will include the band’s 2012 debut EP “Fólkvangr” – which has also been remixed and remastered by Dagenais – as bonus tracks. Both formats of “Woven” are available now for pre-order HERE.
