Henrik has released 3 solo albums: The Last Gash (2007), Carcass and the Flies (2009), and The Sleep of Adam (2012), where Rachael Yamagata sings on the magical duet "Psalm 513" (available here). He is a phenomenal vocalist with great talent, amazing lyrics, and the compelling ability to create dramatic and cinematic music.
Henrik's song Psalm 513 is the winner of our Editor's Choice Award for June, 2012. This song inspires with its rich vocal interplay between Henrik and Rachael Yamagata. Calm and sublime, it is an emotional duet that captures the best of the vocalists' superb abilities.
