Pagan experimentalists Heilung have announced they will be working with UK-based gaming company Ninja Theory on the soundtrack for its upcoming game, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II.
The announcement trailer for the new game, which has just premiered at this year’s Game Awards, features Heilung’s song In Maidjan, which is taken from their debut album, Ofnir.
You can check out the trailer below.
Speaking of the collaboration, Heilung commented: “It is with the uttermost joy and deepest respect that we can finally reveal: Heilung is collaborating with Ninja Theory on the soundtrack for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II.
“From the very first meeting with co-founder and chief creative Ninja Tameem, commercial director Dominic, and audio lead David, we discovered that although we work on very different platforms, the core is very much alike.
“Both Heilung and Hellblade are deeply inspired by nature and history, and aim to alter your state of mind. We are looking very much forward to present this hybrid child, born from a meeting between ancient spirits and the technology of tomorrow.”
This is not the first time Heilung’s music has been featured in a commercial, as Krigsgaldr was featured in a 2018 commercial for the Adidas x Alexander Wang collaboration.
Heilung’s latest album, Futha, was released in the summer on Season of Mist.
