HENGET is a Finnish psychedelic/avant-garde black metal band founded in Finland during late 2021 by guitarist-songwriter Jesse J. Heikkinen and vocalist-lyricist King Aleijster de Satan. Their goal was to create something unique and artistic, something beautiful yet violent, inspired by the world of psychedelia and the occult.
The cornerstone of HENGET is lain in the soil of black metal, yet as well their music draws heavy influence from their peers of death metal, psychedelia and progressive rock, notably including such bands as Arcturus, Dodheimsgård, Behemoth and King Crimson. A constellation of musical perspectives combined to earn HENGET a description by some as “Behemoth on mushrooms”.
