Ceolskog

Bio

Ceolskog is the solo project of Adam Helliwell, a singer and guitarist from Hamilton (formerly of IronStein and Z Amigos). Ceol means music in Irish Gaelic, and skog means forest in Norwegian and Swedish. The name also doubles as his hiking and nature-themed YouTube channel.

The primary genre of Ceolskog is folk metal, a cross between heavy metal and traditional folk music (particularly Celtic and Nordic), but also touches upon other genres, such as country rock, power metal and acoustic folk. Think of it like The Proclaimers meets Falkenbach meets Creedence Clearwater Revival meets the Viking metal albums of Bathory.

Adam is a self-taught guitarist, and studied music at Vision College where he took a vocal major. He didn't buy his first guitar until age 19, a year after he joined his first band. He has recorded four Ceolskog albums and three EPs in his bedroom, released between 2015 and 2022.

Although Ceolskog is currently just a solo project, Adam is on the lookout for musicians keen on joining forces with him, so that it can become a proper live band.

Band Members:
Adam Helliwell (vocals, guitar, programming, bass)
Scott Campbell Glass - (guest bass)

Ceolskog's Third Album
Posted: Sun Mar 19, 2017 10:14 pm
Hello folks, my third album, "The Southern Cross and the Northern Star" is complete, and ready to download. I decided to dedicate it to the New Zealand folk musician Phil Garland, who passed a few days ago. I learned one of the songs on this album, The Dying Bushman, from his "Singing Kiwi" songbook.

I am also working on a nature/outdoors-themed YouTube video for the entire album, which will be out tomorrow, and also a music video for the last song I worked on, Waltzing Matilda (the second track on the album), which probably is a couple of weeks away.

By the way.... I was originally going to do two more songs....but I needed a break. Google
