Willkommen zu “12 things about…”! Heute habe ich HJELVIK dafür gewinnen können, die Sätze zu vollenden beziehungsweise die Fragen zu beantworten, die ich ihm geschickt habe! Viel Spaß beim lesen!

Cheers Erlend Hjelvik,

thank you for taking part here. Just write what you think, when you want to answer the following questions or complete the sentences!

12 things about – “HJELVIK”!


1. If I were allowed to choose a location, I would play in / on…


A huge metal festival with a great stage, awesome sound and crazy audience!  That and I have a dream about touring on a boat with a stage on it and going shore to shore to play shows. Boat shows are always the most fun to play too. Some day!



2. Fast food is okay if…

Whenever the hell you feel like it! 


3. Veggie or not, that is the question!

That was a question I asked myself three years ago before I went vegan. One of the best choices I’ve ever made! 


4. If I were allowed to be an animal for one day, I would be a…

I often wonder what’s going on inside the mind of our dog, so it would be nice to get that answered! 


5. With this legend I would like to rock the masses…

Matt Pike or Mike Scalzi who are both guests on my last album, really hope I get the chance to perform the songs Glory of Hel and Necromance with them in the flesh at some point in the future! 


6. I’m on stage…

2022, I hope! It’s been almost three years since I last played a show, so you could say I’m starting to feel a little antsy! 


7. In the tour bus I hate…

Nothing.  Right now I can’t wait to get on the tour bus, ask me again in a few years time. 


8. I prefer to be on vacation…

In America, it’s been a long time since I’ve been there now. My wife and I can’t wait to go back there and visit friends and family. 


9. I would take on a series role in…

‘The Love Boat’. I just watched the first season of it and it seems fun to be an extra on that show. I would just be happy to go on a cruise in general. 


10. This time of the year is my favorite…

Right now feels really great, the sun has come back and the days are getting longer. Feels pretty invigorating after a long, cold Norwegian winter. Time for a beer and a BBQ! 


11. The album that influences me most musically…

It’s really hard to answer just one album since I have so many albums I love and influence me. If I can chose only one I will say Blood Fire Death by Bathory. Evil, epic and heavy!  


12. My record collection is…

A blend of heavy metal, prog, thrash, doom and black metal.
