Biography:
Dødheimsgard (sometimes shortened as DHG) was originally a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1994, but 1999's 666 International saw them shift towards a more experimental, avant-garde/industrial black metal style. They went through some line-up changes, replacing Aldrahn, Zweizz and Czral.

"Dødheimsgard" is a conjunction of three words: Død which means death, heim which means home and gard which means (at least in this context) mansion. A natural translation into English would be "Mansion of Death", alternatively Realm of the Dead/Death.

The band's discography ranges from a promo release in 1994 and five full-length albums, with the latest in 2007. In March 2015 the band returns with a new full-length album, continuing in the same style of avant-garde and industrial black metal.
