I have been getting a few questions regarding my Sigillum series, so here is some information to clear things up:
I initially recorded the first three Sigillum digital releases (Sigillum ACHAM, Sigillum ATRA and Sigillum EE A.K.) as background music for other activites than just “entertainment”. By that I mean practices where you want to use the music as a mood enhancer or as backdrop to something deeper and more profound – it could be rituals, meditation, sex or other physical activities that needs focusing of your Will. They are intended as tools, not something to put on and enjoy in the classic sense.
The last(?) chapter in this series – Sigillum AKASHAI DASU – just released – is not available for streaming.
The Zazen Sounds/Nigrum Serpentis CD release “Atra Acham” is a reworked version that mainly uses Sigillum ATRA and Sigillum ACHAM as sources, but it is not the same versions and it is a more focused representation of the Sigillum series as I had to adjust the recordings to the length of a CD.
For now the only physical manifestation of the Sigillum series is the above mentioned album, but there might be some news on this shortly.
Nordvargr “Atra Acham” album sold out
“Zazen Sounds and Nigrum Serpentis presents Atra Acham (CD, ZZS016/NSP011), an album that is inspired from personal empirism in the Drakonian Current. The purpose behind it is to transfer the listener to this hidden sphere of experience (Headphones Required). The first 40 copies come with a special handmade incense for use during meditation.”
The whole edition sold out in a few hours, but you can probably still find copies at the distros…
Anima Nostra reviewed
Concreteweb.be did an excellent review of the first Anima Nostra album… expect more Anima Nostra news shortly as we currently are in the process of finishing the recordings of the second album.
Better digital distribution
Currently working hard to make my music available in most digital platforms (such as Spotify, iTunes, etc). First out is Awaken, Helvete and Resignation, shortly followed by Originome and Avart. Expect much more music to be published over the year!
“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.

Folkstorm @ WIF
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.
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!
