Dødheimsgard (also known as DHG) is a Norwegian extreme metal band formed in 1994. Dødheimsgard was originally a black metal band, but 1999's 666 International saw them change into an experimental and avant-garde / industrial 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 contraction of three words: Død which means 'death', heim which means 'home' and gard which means (at least in this context) 'realm'. A natural translation into English would be "Realm of Death".

In 2006, they completed the new album Supervillain Outcast, which was released in April 2007 by Moonfog Productions and The End Records.

On January 4, 2008, it was announced that vocalist Kvohst had left the band.[1] However, as of October 2010, he has rejoined Dødheimsgard, Also in 2010 a new drummer, Terghl, and a new guitarist, Blargh, was introduced. The band is now working on new material for a new album.[2]
