Norwegian Viking Metallers HELHEIM are set to celebrate their 20 year history with a special concert at the Inside Rock Café in their home town of Bergen today. The event will also feature local bands and special guests, and, according to the band, the venue, with its intimate surroundings, has been especially chosen so that it becomes a true celebration amongst fans and friends. However, after receiving many messages from fans outside of Norway who would obviously not be able to attend, HELHEIM have decided to stream the performance live on their website at www.helheim.com/live and the stream will begin at precisely 22:00 Norwegian time, and will remain available to be viewed for a period of time after the event. NARROWHEAD, whose frontman has frequently guested on vocals for HELHEIM, along with the all-girl Rockband FAIRY and Punk Rockers BEINKJØR will also be playing at the event. There will be other guests throughout the evening, but according to HELHEIM: "we prefer to keep it all as a surprise. It wouldn’t be a real party if there weren’t a few surprises for everyone!" Nine tracks covering 20 years of HELHEIM’s history can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page
