"Viþer" (meaning "forest" or "wood" in ancient Swedish) is an acoustic project of J. Hallegren (Månegarm) and Sir.N (Svartrit, Grav, Grifteskymfning etc); dealing with local folklore and myths and tales from J.Hallegrens' home region in Sweden. This song is from the debut demo, and was written and recorded in periods between 2015-2017, soon to be released by Mystery of Death Production, highly limited to 100 copies of colored and hand numbered 12" vinyl. The release will contain both patch and poster and feature more than 40 minutes of Nordic folk anthems.
Another Friday and another great day in the world of thoughtful music with the release of Canadian Ulvesang’s new and second album ”The Hunt”. What could be better than to enjoy this upcoming weekend together with such a beautiful release? All pre-orders have been shipped except those including the vinyl due to an unfortunate delay. If you didn’t pre-order the album don’t hesitate to order your copy today or stream it through a digital platform of your own choice.
The air hangs heavy in the air, exhaled by a huddle of men – alert and eager to set off. The long grass is stiff with frost and a murder of crows wait in a nearby tree. They understand. They too are ready for the hunt. The anticipation is unbearable as the invocation begins. Reverence and ceremony are key. There is no cutting corners and the rite only serves to heighten the senses and sharpen the mind. There is an ancient awe in the air and a feeling of connection to the past; to those who walked this same crisp ground before. Alex Boyd & Ana Dujakovic reflect on the poignancy of such a connection. The melancholy that sits in between the moments of excitement. The tinge of sorrow that follows a successful hunt. The sense of purpose has been and gone. The afterglow has given way to regret and unease. A beautiful creature has died that we may persevere. Is that the chants of our ancestors carried on the wind? Are they proud? Perhaps that is enough. Perhaps that is everything. To use the term neofolk here would be ironic as Ulvesang have reached back beyond the past and found not only a connection to those who came before, but also an unearthly primordial magic. Surely that is the very definition of true folk music.
"Voodoo Shivaya," is the new double album of Bobby BeauSoleil's music, coming out soon on AJNA. Guest musicians include Michael Moynihan on drums, and Annabel Lee on the violin. Engineered by Robert Ferbrache.
we're very happy to announce that we'll be releasing a new single in August. It's ready for preorder as of now. We're quite excited about this new direction to be honest (consider it a bold step backwards) and can't wait to share this first single with you, though some of you might have heard us play this live at some of the more recent shows already... Also, we finally made special shirts again for our female friends as well...
