Comprised of members hailing from Germany, Norway, and Denmark, Heilung are a experimental folk/industrial group committed to bringing back the forgotten sounds of the Iron Age through rich, stirring songs performed on unusual instruments including swords, shields and human bones. The Revolver favorites recently completed their first-ever North American headlining tour, including a January 24th stop at New York City's Webster Hall. Photographer Mark Smitty Neal was there to catch all the mesmerizing ritualistic action — see some of his standout shots below.
