Heilung‘s ritual is neither a performance nor a concert; it is a fully immersive ceremony that connects its listeners with the elements of nature through music, dance, and mysticism. The band is made up of members from Denmark, Norway, and Germany, their music is based on texts and runic inscriptions from Germanic peoples of the Bronze Age, Iron Age, and Viking Age. Heilung describe their music as "amplified history from early medieval Northern Europe", and is usually about Norse deities, jǫtnar, and Valkyries. "Heilung" is a German noun meaning "healing" in English.
