Dødheimsgard (now known as DHG) was originally a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1994, but 1999's 666 International saw them change into an experimental and avant-garde metal band. In 2000 they shortened their name to DHG. During 2003 they went through some lineup changes, replacing Aldrahn, Zweizz and Czral.
"Dødheimsgard" is a conjunction of three words: Død which means death, heim which means home and gard which means (at least in this context) mansion. A natural translation into English would be "Mansion of Death", alternatively Realm of the Dead/Death.
In 2006 they completed the new album Supervillain Outcast, which was released in April 2007 by Moonfog Productions and The End Records.
