Helheim formed in Sarpsborg, Norway in 1992.
The band consisted of Jon (Vocals, R.I.P. 2004), Zorn (Bass, Guitars, Drum programming) 
and Zeb (Drum programming, Samples, Keyboards).
The trio recorded 2 demos before releasing their last work, Fenris MCD, in 1996.
Their style was industrialized black metal with distorted vocals, drum-machine and the appropriate amount of synths,

while lyrically they were influenced by paganism, occultism and mythology.
The band often called themselves The Helheim Society in order to avoid confusion. 

It never appeared on the front-covers of their releases, but it did appear in fanzines, 
in their official P.O. Box address and on their later MySpace site.
Fenris was re-issued on StaalPakt (Darker Than Black Records) in 2012 under the band name The Helheim Society 

and added as bonus were the songs recorded by Vendetta Blitz, a later industrial-electro project by Zorn.
