Hagalas is the melodic death metal quintet from Jyväskylä Finland. The band was originally formed in 2016 but it reached its current form in 2020 by publishing three singles and later this year (4.4.2022 to be exact) its second EP called “As A Unit” via Inverse Records. Thematically the EP follows a very topical moment of world order as the songs tell about war, refugeedom and the struggle of humanity. These are the mirror images of the songs. Latest ep contains four songs and the playtime is about 22 minutes in total.
The ep recieved very good feedback all around and gained a lot of new followers to social media and to spotify as well. Real Gone magazine wrote that “As A Unit can claim a place for one of the best metal releases of 2022”.

From the heart of Finland hails a storm. Cleansing the stale and corrupt, giving an opportunity to reshape and build something different.
Hagalas is a quintet of experienced musicians, introducing two former members of Kea and two members of SemiOK, leaving the bass master on his own unmolested pedestal.
Musically Hagalas fits into the quagmire of Melodic Death Metal, inspired by great bands like Insomnium, In Flames and Children of Bodom.
