Born in the fall of 2012, Heylel are a progressive rock band from Porto, Portugal.
The band combines influences ranging from classic to hard and even symphonic rock, with a very personal touch. The outcome is a dark, atmospheric and involving sound, gracefully combined with the beautiful voice of Ana Batista.
In 2014 the band released its debut album "Nebulae" and caught the attention of international progressive and rock press:
In September 2015 their second effort "Flesh" established the band in the international alternative rock scene.
Shades of Time (2017) will be the first album to feature the new five piece line up. Release by Into The Limelight Records this will be an album to look forward to. Set your watch; time is nearly here!
