Zornheym is a symphonic extreme heavy metal band based in Stockholm, Sweden and was founded and led by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Zorn.

After parting ways with black metal act Dark Funeral, Zorn was determined to shake up the traditional “Metal-meets-Symphony” approach and Zornheym quickly grew from an ambitious idea into a dramatic musical and narrative driven concept revolving around the horrors of a mental institution and its prisoners.

Four years after the gates of the asylum were first imagined, they were finally opened upon the release of the debut album, “Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns” (2017 Non Serviam Records). This album introduced the terrifying asylum concept and horrific characters contained within.

Ever since, Zornheym‘s sound has been described as powerful and cinematic and the band’s highly anticipated sophomore full-length record invites you to continue that experience in “The Zornheim Sleep Experiment“, happening deep in the bowels of the asylum. Once again, Zornheym create their very own wall of sound by using a real choir and a string quartet and bring the story to life in a graphic novel that accompanies and expands upon the stories behind the album.

The release took place on October 22, 2021 on the German powerhouse Noble Demon label. Zornheym will continue to deliver their high energy, bombastic experience to many festivals and venues all around Europe!
