WR505: Helfreya

Talking to four people on the show is always tricky — even in the before-time when I interviewed people in person — but I think we pulled it off with this remote episode feat. alt-metal act [Helfreya](http://www.facebook.com/HelfreyaBand/)! We talked about their debut album, ‘[Shieldmaiden](http://helfreya.bandcamp.com/album/shieldmaiden)’, and the Norse/Celtic mythology therein, about taking advantage of the pandemic time to really hone their mixes, and more! Helfreya is playing its first show since November (!) — the [Shieldmaiden release party](http://www.facebook.com/events/339009387067518/) — on Saturday. This episode brought to you by [Lana Winterhalt](http://lanawinterhalt.bandcamp.com/) and an anonymous listener who wants to encourage people to volunteer/donate to [Winnipeg Harvest](http://winnipegharvest.org/). Don’t forget to check out some socially-distanced shows at the [Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), who have slowly reopened after a long COVID-19 closure.
