Helium Vola is a German Darkwave or "Electro-Medieval" band founded in 2001 by Ernst Horn, who was also one of the founding members of Qntal. In the contract with Chrom Records Horn insisted on Helium Vola not being seen as a successor of Qntal nor being marketed as such. The band's name is Latin meaning "Fly, Helium" - a reference to the noble gas Helium which is used to fill balloons.

Helium Vola interpret medieval lyrics in Old High German, Middle High German, Latin, Provencal and Middle French language in a modern, electronic scape of sound. Thereby danceable songs like their last single In Lichter Farbe Steht Der Wald" as well as pieces that are strongly based on samples (e.g. "Funerali" and "Iuvenes" on "Helium Vola") are created.

Both albums published by Helium Vola are meant to be concept albums with a general theme. "Helium Vola", with a mix of mostly medieval lyrics and news casts focuses on the shipwrecking of Russia nuclear submarine Kursk. The album "Liod" (Old High German: song) broaches the issue of a medieval woman's biography.

The projects main vocalist is Sabine Lutzenberger, though the project has utilised a number of guest singers and musicians.
