Artist Biography Available in: Helium Vola is a German "Electro-Medieval" band founded in 2001 by Ernst Horn, who was also one of the founding members of Qntal. In the contract with Chrom Records Horn insisted on Helium Vola not being seen as a successor of Qntal nor being marketed as such. The band's name is Latin meaning "Fly, Helium" - a reference to the noble gas Helium which is used to fill balloons.
Helium Vola interpret medieval lyrics in Old High German, Middle High German, Latin, Provençal and Middle French language in a modern, electronic scape of sound. Thereby danceable songs like their last single "In Lichter Farbe Steht Der Wald" as well as pieces that are strongly based on samples (e.g. "Funerali" and "Iuvenes" on Helium Vola) are created.
The project's main vocalist is Sabine Lutzenberger, though the project has utilised a number of guest singers and musicians.
