AURA SHINING GREEN: East of the Sun & West of the Moon  
6-panel digipack-2CD  14,00€

Released on the name day of Joonatan, the massive retrospective compilation double-CD of Joonatan Elokuu's wandering psychedelic folk group Aura Shining Green sees the light of day and the bright moonlit night. The first part "East of the Sun" carries the soft fragrance of flowers and the sunlit forests, reminding us perhaps of the works of B'ee (In Gowan Ring & Birch Book), Nick Drake and even early tunes Leonard Cohen. Second part "West of the Moon" takes us through the mysterious moonlit nights filled with wonder & magic. Bearing the ever present strong psychedelic folk aura and possibly some hints the artists mentioned earlier, these stories are murkier and full of feeling and intimacy. One might even hear some reminiscences of works of Timothy Renner (Stone Breath, Crown Tongue...) or even legendary Coil or Tangerine Dream in more ambient parts and synthesizer works. The beauty and depth of detail of his magnum opus is underlined by masterful guitarwork and his utterly soft and tender vocals.

 

KEYSilver moon slumber  
CD, 12 page booklet  12,00€ 

The second full-length of Key after the debut "Crown of Winter" and the demo trilogy "Birch Skeletons, Skin Lanterns and Lake of Stars" is titled Silver Moon Slumber. Childlike cuteness of fairytales and fantasy stories entwine to esoteric and occult philosophy to form an eclectic mixture of atmosperic neofolk with hints of post-punk.

 

KEY: Birch Skeletons, Skin Lanterns & Lake of Stars  
6-panel digipack-CD  12,00€

The collected demos of Key are released in digipack-CD format. The design honors the original black & white aesthetics of the demos, and seals the pack with small & stylish silver foilprint on the front cover. Music on the demos is even more unpolished than on the two full-lengths "Crown of Winter" and "Silver Moon Slumber". The sense of improvisation and pure feeling over technical aspects is strongly present over all the songs. Most of the songs were not rehearsed, only recorded in a whim and led by emotion and visions. This is post-punkish neofolk for the people who are tired of polished plastic sound present in so many releases these days. These are fairytales from candle-lit cellars and misty forests made by (and for) the people who long for the childlike emotion of the old tales, storytelling by the candlelight, and the longing for world of wonders and joy. 


PYHÄ KUOLEMA: Saavun vaikken kulkisi   
4-panel digipack-CD, 12 page booklet  12,00€

Traditional to the bone, but still clearly finding it’s own sound despite the classic  ”man+guitar” approach, Pyhä Kuolema debut album ”Saavun vaikken kulkisi” brings forth a dozen of atmospheric, national romantic, extremely emotional and intimate songs sung in Finnish. The style of playing and singing varies from solemn ritualistic neofolk-songs to troubadur-like playful approach to traditional folk music. Mikko Ilmari "Riimu" Pöyhönen composed, sung, played, recorded and mixed the whole album by himself, giving it the intimate touch and thus manages the handling of the double edged sword that this kind of folk can be – the  sometimes even rough and stripped down output with no gimmicks is this time succesfully shaking hands with the alluring soft intensity.

 

TERVAHÄÄT
CD, 12 page booklet  12,00€ 

The almost amorphous debut album of Tervahäät lays a cornerstone to the formation of this singular band. Almost formless and freezing like a blizzard which is carrying the woes of the ancestors of the native Finland, this album presents a wintry nordic landscape with of rebirth ancient rituals, and testimonies of the cruelty of Finnish nature.

 

TERVAHÄÄTKalmonsäie   
6-panel digipack-CD  12,00€

"Kalmonsäie" continues on the path of the self-titled album. Freezing and eerie avantgarde folk and ambient soundscapes are brought forth with the aid of primitive ritualistic percussions and home-made instruments. On this album the unique wintry sound of Tervahäät collides with solemn and noble chants, resulting in singular aural opus of esoteric Finnish mysticism.

 

TERVAHÄÄTPatria  
6-panel digipack-CD  12,00€

With Patria Tervahäät takes a leap towards traditional neofolk. Somber songs are based on warm vocals, determined acoustic guitarwork, and samples of Finnish classical composers. About half of the lyrics of the songs are borrowed from Finnish poets and writers who also loved our homeland each in their own specific ways. Patria is a concept album of our fatherland Finland seen through the eyes of Tervahäät.

 

TERVAHÄÄTTaival   
6-panel digipack-CD  12,00€ 

Taival continues on the paths and narrow roads through Finnish forests to further explore the rustic and mystical sounds and visions of Tervahäät. Seven tracks of ritualistic folk & neofolk are inspired by rural surroundings, spiritual unity, and a sincere interest in the native land and its entities — trees, animals, and the spirit of the ancestors. The fourth album of Tervahäät brings also some surprisingly warm winds from the icy north-west, but the warmth also carries a slight smell of decaying bones and suspicioulsy friendly whispers from old ghosts.


TERVAHÄÄT: Noitanaama
6-panel digipack-CD  12,00€

The newest Tervahäät album reeks of swamps, ghosts and murky soil. This could be the most bizarre Tervahäät album so far. Never had they dwelled so knee-deep in bogs of delirium and undead. Singular rhytmical and melodical presence interwines to improvisation and sheer madness. Crude home-made instruments and rough-hewn electric manipulation join the more common instruments to invoke ghastly sounds straight from the mists of the graves, deep forests and swamps. Noitanaama staggers around the borders of folk and industrial never really setting its dirty foot on any genre. This is on the well known gloomy side of Tervahäät except even more dark, eerie and wrapped in scent of corpses and lunacy... but never, never ever without the small but bright glimpses of light and hope.

 

VIRTAElon syvä lempi  
CD, 4 page booklet  12,00€ 

Virta is the channel of the musical ambitions of Santtu Forsström hailing from Kristiinankaupunki - alluring small town located at the beautiful West Coast of Finland. This nature-praising and original music draws its influences from folk and progressive folk-rock, and the music of five tracks of this fourty-minute album is woven together with drums, percussions, lively bass, acoustic guitars and woodwind instruments. Skillful instrumentation and the progressive elements and song structures create an atmosphere that is at the same time sophisticated and primitively vigorous. "Elon syvä lempi" is rich in nuances, and full of feeling of longing and ethereal calmness. Combined with the ever-present feeling of the element of unpredictability the album truly bears resemblances to the streams and rivers of the North.

OTAVAN VERET
digipack-CD  12,00€

"Majestic, massive noble and deep ambient space musick. Otavan Veret is another new addition to the Cyclic Law family. Hailing from mystical Finland, the project is from the minds of Kaarna (Tervahäät, Slave's Mask, Anima Arctica Label etc..) & Kivelä. Their first self titled album is a conceptual journey towards the the vastness of the universe, where one would simply seep into and become on with these amorphous territories. A calm, epic, massive and monotonously rich curtain of ritualistic sonorities escalates as radiant timbres morphs like an aurora borealis amongst stellar luster. Ever present is the uttermost distance, deep as lethargy, soothing as still waters and affective as phantoms." (CYCLIC LAW)
excerpts
 

 

PYHÄ KUOLEMAKevättuulisormi  
digipack-CD  10,00€

Rough & romantic folk music. Second album of this patriotic troubadour. This is the album that was too much for Svart to handle, after realising the artist has real opinions and a spirit of a true rebellion. (SVART)
excerpts

 

 

SAIVA: Markerna bortom  
LP  18,00€

Unique Lappish folk/rock/metal. "Far to the north, beyond the noise and rule of civilization, lies a vast and untamed landscape. It’s a place untouched by time, free from the destructive influence of man. Yet, it echoes of an ancient heritage. But whisper in the wind, it still speaks stronger and clearer to those who are willing to listen. It’s a land enchanted by myths and stories about man and nature, that of cruelty and beauty and harsh duality of the wilderness. These are the stories reflected through Saiva’s stripped-down emotional expression. The debut album "Markerna bortom" is a unique opportunity for us to take part in a way of life that is indeed unusual in today's society. This album isn’t just a nostalgic glimpse at a forgotten time, but a journey to a place forgotten and untraveled by most. Featured guest appearances by J. Kaarna (Tervahäät), Austin Lunn (Panopticon) & Erik Gärdefors (Grift)." (NORDVIS)

Their music is a mix of traditional Pyrenees Folk and heathen Battle / Hunting songs. Their first full length album is a tale narrated by an old man as his last legacy to a casual traveller.

Bhleg (SWE) - Solarmegin  digi-2CD  14,00€
This massive double CD release comes in a vinyl gatefold replica, fully printed inner sleeves and custom illustrations. All parts are printed on heavy recycle stock. "Solarmegin", the principle and celebration of the Sun, culminates four years of ancient meditation and solar worship at the hands of the brothers of Swedish folk metal duo Bhleg. The 98 minutes of this rugged, earth-bound gratitude to the distant sphere of fire was only composed on the brightest of days, a sun-fulfilled being all its own. Like any other plant, animal, human which owe its life to the sun, the folk metal of "Solarmegin" is jagged, blemished, imperfect. It is naltural, a being of soil and organic matter a
s ancient and weathered as the primeval music and cultures which inspired its composition. Nordvis.

Mars (GER)  - Blood is the food of the Gods  digi-CD  10,00€
Inspired by American pagan folk and apocalyptic philosophy the sound of MARS is dominated by purely acoustic arrangements using guitars, various percussions and two male voices. Their drum-driven hymns tell of the persisting powers of nature, of the ancient breath of the gods and of the Eternal Cyclic Law of life. This is no simple escapism into dreamy realms, it’s a multifaceted journey into the subconscious parts of the human spirit, driven by pounding rhythms and accentuated guitars. With ‘Blood is the Food of the Gods’ MARS has become a powerful force in the European pagan underground. Their songs are energetic rituals to awaken the forgotten powers.  [Lichterklang]

Calling up our oldest memories and melodies and giving the more delicate, quiet and melancholic Galician Folk from the late 70s and early 80s a new dimension, where nature, folk tales, old wisdom, mysteries and love get together to build up a future far from technological civilization. With members coming from the depths of punk and counterculture since the 90's, Sangre de Muerdago deliver a feast of finger picked guitars, cello, violin/viola, baroque flute, nyckelharpa, and occassional percussion and hurdy-gurdy, dancing together on a beauty invocation, on a gathering of passion and melodies that will awake our sleeping "myself", our true soul. With its music, Sangre de Muerdago brings us to a world of ancient musical enchantment. Beautiful folk, try this if Birch Book, Solanaceae, Aura Shining Green or In Gowan Ring suits your taste.
