Vildhjarta image provided by Biography from

Vildhjarta is a progressive metal band from Hudiksvall, Sweden. The band plays in an aberrant Meshuggah-influenced musical style with use of djent guitar. The band is characterized by harmonic minor progressions, jarring enharmonic staccato riffs, layers of reverberant guitars and dual lead vocalists. They were signed to Century Media Records in 2011. The band's name, Vildhjarta, originates from the Swedish role-playing game Drakar och Demoner. Vildhjärta (not "vildhjarta") means "wild heart" in Swedish. Read more on

Isn’t “djent” over yet? Apparently not. While there are those such as Periphery and TesseracT who are leading the way with Meshuggah-inspired riffs and huge, soaring melodic vocals, there are bands like Vildhjarta who believe that tech metal should be as brutal as it possibly can be btu also a beautiful as possible. Luckily, they’re pretty good at doing that.
