Had the pleasure of remixing Michael Idehalls track “Feline” which can be enjoyed here.
As winter and a new year approaches, I hereby proudly announce a new Nordvargr CD release planned to be unleashed January 17:
The secret barbarous names (Malignant Records)
9 tracks, 48 minutes. Limited digipac edition.
“Incredibly haunting and formidable invocations, built upon richly timbered, incantatory vocals and deep, liturgical chants, and occasionally augmented by ominous orchestral swell and ritual percussion. All of it is endlessly stretched out into lightless passages of primordial malevolence and suffocating dread”
May the winter bite your limbs and harden you for the tribulations to come, and may 2017 be an even better year than this. There are lots of plans for next year, so keep an eye out for updates. Don’t forget to stream/dl my music here.
If you are a promotor and want to book me for 2017, drop me an email – still lots of open dates in my calendar.
…and remember; salvation comes from inside. Reach inward and ye shall find.
“Darkness preceded light and she is Mother”
A huge thanks to all who attended the show as well as the whole festival crew.
Don´t forget; the remastered and expanded backcatalogue of Folkstorm is just a click away.
Where Words Fail, Music Speaks – A compilation for Ania Mehring.
This compilation is a small initiative on behalf of Santa Sangre Magazine, dedicated to Ania, the wife of Maciej Mehring, the founder of the Zoharum label and the Bisclaveret project. In August Ania was diagnosed with Sarcoma Synoviale, an exceptionally malignant tumor. The fight will be hard, but Ania absolutely does not want to surrender. That’s not at all an option. But the treatment is expensive and money is needed like never before. Show support!
If you are in Sweden this weekend you should be at Geiger X, Gothenburg – I will perform at 23:00 on Saturday.
Also check my Bandcamp for a new small EP release “Vital Mauve”
Lots of new things happening, stay tuned for official announcements towards the end of the year…
Presenting The Secret Barbarous Names, a vocal based work inspired by the Draconian and Typhonian traditions. The title refers to the hidden meanings of the countless manuscripts that has been kept secret for millennia – their supposed effectiveness resting in their utterance, not their meaning.
Some assorted news and gossip from the crypt:
Preparing the upcoming Folkstorm performance at Wroclaw Industrial Festival as well as finishing up the forthcoming Folkstorm album that has been in the works for years… Don´t forget; the remastered and expanded backcatalogue of Folkstorm is just a click away.
Speaking of noise; I will make a special appearance at the XII CONGRESSO POST INDUSTRIALE in Bologna, Italy with Hydra Head 9 – the first and last show ever.
Re-issues on vinyl (finally!) of the old MZ. 412 albums are right now in the making.
The debut album by Nordvargr / Drakh, “Northern Dark Supremacy”, is getting remastered and also expanded to almost twice its length with unreleased materials from the same era. Will be out on CD later this year… stay tuned for details.
What started as a collaboration has now become a project of its own; new recording sessions are ongoing with Anima Nostra… more news as it manifests.
More info on more liveshows, happenings and releases will follow shortly. In the meantime, go here and enjoy and support the Great Work ahead!
I will be performing at the Castle Party Bolków, Poland, in the Church, Saturday the 30/7, at 17:20, so make sure to be there in time…
Currently working close with Shibalba and Path of Amenta to produce a split 10″ vinyl which will come with booklet (and possibly a limited book) presenting both projects visually as well as art and written words. More info will follow as things manifest.
