Vildhjarta is a thall metal band from Hudiksvall, Sweden, formed in 2005. Their musical genre as described by themselves is "ambidjent". It has taken them a few years to go from something abstract into something concrete. However, their music is a mixture of the abstract and the concrete. The ambient and peaceful moments find a stark contrast in the more brutal and dark music that combined contribute to the comprehensive style of Vildhjarta.
