Andréa H. was married to a metal musician

There is a wild life behind Andréa H. In the 1990s she became known as a singer in the gothic scene and performed at festivals in Germany. She wrote books and was fascinated by esotericism and the witch cult. Her stage name was derived from this: “Nebelhexe”.

Years ago she left her old life behind and emigrated to Norway. She married the metal musician Samoth (bourgeois Tomas H.), a star of the scene who appeared several times at the legendary Wacken Festival. According to BILD information, the two should have separated more than 15 years ago.

Nevertheless, Andréa and Tomas H. remained connected – especially through their daughter Alva (24). She lives in her own apartment just eight kilometers from her mother. It was also Thomas H. who shook hands with Alva yesterday at the service for the victims of the attack. The Norwegian crown prince couple Mette-Marit (48) and Haakon (48) were among the hundreds of mourners.
