Aura Shining Green:
East of the Sun & West of the Moon

6-panel digipack 2CD    15,00€ 

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.  

  

KAARNA:
Comitatus Savolaxiæ

6-panel digipack-CD  12,50€

The first full-length presents murky (dungeon?) synth ambient mixed with hints of martial industrial and notable amounts of old-school neoclassical. It's dedicated to and inspired by the historical lands, culture, people, traditions and woods of the ancestral homeland of Savonia.

  

KAARNA: 
Tutkielma magnetismista, kivusta ja valtiosta

6-panel digipack-CD  12,50€ 

Tutkielma magnetismista, kivusta ja valtiosta" deals with with esoteric and Finnish historical themes; WWI & WWII related happenings, the struggle for independence and freedom from Soviet Union / Russia, and more personal level battles - the war trauma and poverty caused by the Chaos that not also surrounded Finland and all world, but also was stirring and causing unrest deep inside the veins of the nation of Finland. 
These dreamlike glimpses and visions of the times about 100 years ago can easily find their corresponding counterparts of the today's world. As we all know - "Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it". But for the people with more esoteric world see that all the historical tales and their protagonists and antagonists also play a role in a different kind of plays, a whirlpools of energy currents, channeling and magick. The leaders of the Nations have secretly seeked help and guidance from divination and other forms of esoteric wisdom during all ages. Still, almost all of these methods are considered to be nonsense by modern standards... The album is musically ranging somewhere from industrial ambient to martial industrial, electro-ambient and neo-classical. Several texts from the former Finnish great men (Kallio, Jylhä, Kramsu, Mannerheim) has been sampled or borrowed to use as lyrics. Released 4.4. on the day of Ukko

 

KAARNA: 
Väkipyssyvärssyjä ja Kulkutautitarinoita

6-panel digipack-CD  12,50€ 

These martial industrial styled blunderbuss-stories and plague-tales draw their inpiration on old ugly brothers Pestilence and War. Wherever you spot another, you can be sure the another one is not far away. The stories and songs on this album draw inspiration on soldiers blood-lust while marching towards the battle and pillage with heavy steps, the merciless plagues that keep pestering the world and all the innocent men in the wet dungeons with their itching shackles. With this one, it was impossible to hide the artitsts absolute admiration of legendary old school bands like The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud, older works of Der Blutharsch, Blood Axis, magickal Roman Ain Soph and legendary esoteric industrial loop master NON. So, expect old school martial industrial with deranged loops and vocals, broad-shouldered martial rhythms melted together with atmospheres woven with carefully selected analogue and 90's synths and broad assortment of actual organic instruments.

 

KEY: 
Birch Skeletons, Skin Lanterns & Lake of Stars  
6-panel digipack-CD  12,50€

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:
Uusi panssaroitu Suomi      
LP, gatefold  26,00€
CD, 6-panel foilprinted digipack 12,50€               

The third album of this vital act "Uusi panssaroitu Suomi" (The new armored Finland) draws another full chapter in Finnish folk & neofolk with vigorous blood. Expect more varied instrumentation and approach, with the usual fingerprint of Finnish spirit. Eerie synths and robust percussions are brought to accompany the well known style of mournful vocals and masterful guitarwork. The album seeps the war trauma of the artists' family as well as very cruel and sometimes even humorous introspection. Never hiding or shunning away from difficult or dangerous topics he also digs deep in the national spirit of Finland, with all it's ugly scars, smiling faces, shattered bones and beautiful sunsets. This is a true milestone on the path of re-awakening of the golden age of Finnish spirit, Finnish art and Finnish man.

  

TERVAHÄÄT
CD, 12 page booklet  12,50€ 

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.

 

TERVAHÄÄT: 
Patria  
6-panel digipack-CD  12,50€

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.

 

TERVAHÄÄT: 
Taival   
6-panel digipack-CD  12,50€ 

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 suspiciously friendly whispers from old ghosts.


TERVAHÄÄT: 
Noitanaama
6-panel digipack-CD  12,50€

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.

 

TERVAHÄÄT: 
Virtus
8-panel digipack-CD  12,50€

"VIRTUS" is the second part of the "Neofolk Finland" trilogy that "PATRIA" started in 2012. This time, after the gloomy and bog-stenched "NOITANAAMA", TERVAHÄÄT takes a leap towards more traditional neofolk... but quickly sidesteps to krautish industrial psychedelia and takes a cover in the trenches of futurism or even visions of 100 years old modernism. So, "VIRTUS" is a "neofolk album" and it is not. :AA: has always been reluctant to namedrop, but in this case it has to be done: To add a suitable finishing touch to this opus the mastering work was made by the master masterer of all masterers, the archmagus of sound, Dennis Blackham of Skye Mastering. If you want to see what an "impressive CV" looks like, go find his website. The album has been in the works on-off for a decade now and some parts are originally composed already in 2010 in the same session as "PATRIA"... Anyway, expect this weird one approaching with a coctail flavoured with gunpowder and diesel oil, electrocuted to add a twist... something you haven't heard before. It's the sound of crude machines bowing to sophisticated minds and crude minds bowing to sophisticated machines. The muted explosion, the slow crumbling of the marble statues under time and pollution, the warm feeling of a flash grenade on the face of an blind man, an auditive representation of a comparison of a cut from a surgical steel knife to a cut from a rusty bayonette under a microscope or a kaleidoscope.

 

 

 

VIRTA: 
Elon syvä lempi  
CD, 4 page booklet  12,50€ 

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   temp out of stock
digipack-CD  12,50€

"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)

OTAVAN VERET: II - SYVYS    temp out of stock
digipack-CD  12,00€

"Syvys” is the second demonstration of how Finland’s OTAVAN VERET decipher the pulse of the great cosmic filaments. The radiation from the distant otherness takes audible form in four pieces of ethereal, pulsating atmospherics, where the multitude of transmissions is implemented via a curious amalgam of electronic and acoustic sources operated by Kaarna & XVL. As a result "Syvys” reflects the many phases of a stellar journey in a dreamlike state, encountering both enchantment and anxiousness. (CYCLIC LAW)

selected titles from different labels

   

:Of the Wand and the Moon: - Your love can't hold this wreath of sorrow  CD 15,00€
- "The 10 new songs are a highly atmospheric, melancholic and twilightridden output, that this time clearly shows mainman Kim Larsen’s inspirations from 60-70’s singer/songwriters such as Lee Hazlewood, Leonard Cohen and Serge Gainsbourg, as well as movie soundtracks from the same period. But most importantly – developing the sound from former album “The Lone Descent” (2011). On the other hand, it still maintains some of the dark neo-folk roots of the band - but is still a huge step musically into brand new directions as well."

Blood Axis - Born Again  CD  12,00€
Blood Axis Born Again Storm Records (STRM-12) There will be at least one resurrection on Easter Sunday, 2010, when Blood Axis unveils its latest work, Born Again. The second full-length studio album in the group’s twenty-year history, Born Again signals startling developments and a radical maturation. Old vines have been cut back and carefully tended in order to bear strange new fruit. Over the course of the twelve tracks that comprise Born Again, Blood Axis explores an epic yet human universe in which gods are summoned, kingdoms rise, riddles are unlocked, love is lost, and worlds crumble. This is psychedelia in the literal sense: a “mind-manifesting” journey through the collective psyche of its creators. Born Again weaves a web of potent pleasures. Whereas the earliest Blood Axis music was marked by keyboards and samples, Blood Axis in 2010 is stripped down to an essential core of natural instrumentation, but with force and bombast fully intact. The sonic ingredients on Born Again include electric and acoustic strings (guitar, violin, bass, bouzouki, banjo), melodeon, piano, highland bagpipes and Galician gaita, marching percussion, the mysterious Annabel-a-tron, and Bobby BeauSoleil’s growling, prison-vintage guitar eruptions circa 1976. Underpinning the album and propelling much of the music is the traditional Irish drum the bodhrán, recorded here with unprecedented power. Moynihan’s ominous voice is well matched by Annabel Lee’s elfin intonations, just as her violin finds a perfect counterpoint in Robert Ferbrache’s protean guitar parts. A selective cabal of guest musicians from Europe and the USA add tasteful embellishments to these deceptively simple arrangements. Shot through by myth and romance, the expressive lyrics on Born Again have their roots in ancient and modern poetry, archaic invocations, and tragic laments. Alongside modern English and German, songs are sung in medieval 10th-century Old English and 13th-century Middle High German. The end result is both unclassifiable and unforgettable: neither folk nor rock, traditional nor avant-garde, modern nor archaic. It is simply Blood Axis. Born Again was recorded over a span of many years in remote locations ranging from rural Vermont to the catacombs of Absinthe Studios in Denver, Colorado. Engineered and produced by founding Blood Axis member Ferbrache, the dense sonic tapestry of Born Again is simultaneously raw and refined, synergistically more than the sum of its primal parts. Packaged in a beautiful gatefold cover, Born Again includes a 24-page booklet with complete lyrics and translations, striking portraits of the band members, and solemn photographic images from France, Germany, Austria, Portugal, and the USA. To everything there is season. For those who are cursed, a time to die and to be forgotten. And for the blessed, a time to be born again: to live on, beyond death, in the minds of men. Now is the time for Blood Axis to be Born Again.

- "Recorded almost two decades ago this obscure compendium by Aldenon Satorial for years remained a secret now regained to enlighten the pilgrims’ progress. ‘A Collection of Dead Drones and Aborted Soundscapes’ as a subtitle for the album, sums up a gateway to the darker realms reflecting the inherent duality of being.

Death In June - Black angel - Live!  CD  14,00€
- "Black Angel -Live! captures Death In June in one of their first stripped back shows as unannounced opener for Ikon at the Esplanade Hotel, Melbourne from 2000. Unlike the Live In New York DVD, Black Angel - Live! lacks Douglas P.'s asides and revealing insights, instead you're treated to a wonderful selection of tracks culled from Nada! to Take Care and Control. There's an excellent sound quality and a directness and vitality to the performance. Douglas P. is in fine form; his smooth tones laid down with perfect diction over a warm acoustic sound, while John Murphy's accompaniment is particularly powerful with rolling floor toms, alongside chimes, shakers and cymbal crashes."

Det Kätterska Förbund - Lidaverken del I: Att i Vådeld Förgås  CD 10,00€
- "Cold Spring presents two Swedish titans - NORDVARGR (MZ.412) and ᚦᛟᚦ ᚷᛁᚷ (TREPANERINGSRITUALEN) - teaming up for a bludgeoning dose of Death Industrial majesty. Det Kätterska Förbund, consisting of the two giants dominating the Death Industrial world - Thomas Ekelund (Trepaneringsritualen, Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words) + Henrik Nordvargr Björkk (MZ.412, Pouppée Fabrikk, Folkstorm etc) - has been slowly and methodically working for almost 5 years to finish the first album of this double-headed abomination. Patience richly rewarded. You can instantly feel the presence of lurking unease as the album slowly opens up a distorted world of familiar sounds and voices, but there is something special about these recordings; the menacing aura that has been created adds new elements to the otherwise rigid tropes of the genre. Punishingly heavy rhythmic tracks, with savage incantations from both Thomas and Nordvargr, gratifyingly familiar to fans of the artists' main projects, are flanked by these death-scarred lamentations."

Mäkelä and has been active since 1997. ‘Halki lumisen metsän’ material is minimalist alike Mortiis, ranging from deep, cloud-like drones to almost oppressive militaristic percussion and harmonies, while ‘Kauan Koskematon’ is majestic yet mournful, a forever milestone in dungeon synth winter epic tradition of the 1990s’. Calm and tranquil yet bewitching and mesmerizing winter ambient. A 6-panel gloss-laminated Digipak with original images including the front cover by Aslak Tolonen (Nest) limited to 300 copies."

Proscriptor - The Venus Bellona  CD + poster  10,00€
- "The occultic and atmospheric solo project of Proscriptor McGovern (of ABSU fame) smears an avant-garde style of Pagan music with ‘The Venus Bellona’ – an invigorating and magic(k)al listen to reveal ‘the inner domains of immortality’. Awareness factor: the planet Venus is the sphere closest to the Earth and its longitude is based upon the actual epoch of time. With Venus’ perihelion passage, it is known for a fabulous role as an adulate goddess in Greek mythology. Venus also represents the alchemic(k)al metal of copper, (the fourth “Dalkhu” of fire) whereas “Bellona”, on the other hand, is the Latin term for “war goddess” to complete the bewilderment of the album title. Proscriptor comes to you with ‘The Venus Bellona’ – a collection of deathless fables gathered from a wide variety sources: from his ancestral attributions of Scottish heritage to superstitions and the Dominion folklore of Thoth. Handed down to his shadow from generation to generation, and once told in musky crofters’ cottages and draughty castles, these spellbinding tales of ‘The Venus Bellona’ will thrill and possess followers of all durations. Lightlessness of sound, which is sometimes motionless, is essential in occultic and atmospheric music. Recorded by Proscriptor McGovern in Texas (Autumn Equinox: 1995). First released by Cold Meat Industry’s subsidiary label Cruel Moon International (1995). Re-mastered by Equitant in Texas (Summer Solstice: 2018). Reproduced by Old Captain’s subsidiary label Faust (2018). Limited edition of 300 copies printed in a lavish, full-color glossy 4-panel digipak with an 12-page booklet."

Sonne Hagal - Jordansfrost  CD  12,00€
SONNE HAGAL’s second full-time album once more bestows the listener with a journey into the unknown realms of poetry, mysteries and enthralling melodies. Closely connected to Europa’s folk-music tradition and the Northern mysteries, the band develops song structures that reach from simple traditional arrangements to complex compositions. The songs, performed in German and English, reveal rediscovered poems as well as self-written lyrics. The atmosphere of the songs varies from intimate, quiet parts to fresher, light-hearted and lively sounds up to heavy distorted parts supported by real or electronic drums. Each song unfolds its own universe, interconnected by the central idea of “Jordansfrost”: the constant changing between light and darkness, the seasons or even life and death themselves. A number of well-known international artists supports the band in their intention to create more than just music: a whole philosophy. Amongst others you’ll find: Of The Wand And The Moon (DK), In Gowan Ring (US) Waldteufel (US), Ernte (GER), Lux Interna (US), Darkwood (GER) and Black Sun Productions (CH) The cover artwork uses exclusive paintings by Fabrice/Divine Comedy Records (FR) and underlines the depth and beauty of these 45 minutes of German Darkfolk. Special Digipak comes in three different artworks.

Sonne Hagal - Ockerwasser  CD  12,00€
We are honoured to announce Sonne Hagal's new, long awaited album "OCKERWASSER - A Symphony of Sorrowful songs." There is every indication that OCKERWASSER will be considered Sonne Hagal's masterwork. For six years, after releasing their widely acclaimed album Jordansfrost (2008), Sonne Hagal retreated into themselves, concentrating on realising their visions for that which was to become OCKERWASSER. While there were compilation appearances, a collaboration with FIRE + ICE, and a number of live performances, the majority of their artistic efforts were devoted to OCKERWASSER. OCKERWASSER is the quintessence of what makes music good music. OCKERWASSER is characterised by daedal music compositions, interwoven melodies, and enchanting harmonies. There is a kind of dance between folk, jazz, and experimental music, creating sonic dreamscapes that beckon spirits. Soundscapes that open a wideness inside you to let in (and out!) your dreams, your fears and all the spirits that like to cross the border between consciousness and subconsciousness. OCKERWASSER is founded upon Sonne Hagal's unmistakable acoustic guitar, and is enhanced with violin, trumpet, percussion, bass, and intelligently placed electronics. Rhythms shape-shift between the delicate and doomful, beginning from the first track on the album, "The Shapes of Things to Come," which presents both the Etherworld and the Netherworld, ever reminding us of the ancient, unspoken axiom: "As above, so below." Music, directly from the ether in search for the essence of life. From there you may follow SONNE HAGAL into deeper realms of sleep, into subconsciousness, and "Silence" begets the dreamless fields of "Black Spring," and beyond. With each and every listening, we emerge transfigured from OCKERWASSER as from a journey. The lyrics of OCKERWASSER are simultaneously prophetic, Hermetic, all-encompassing and yet profoundly personal. With Sonne Hagal we are invited to exploring our dreams, our consciousness, our very existence, and the nature of human psyche. OCKERWASSER transforms universes into dreams, dreams into words, words into ideas. For six years Sonne Hagal has worked to create an expression of these ideas, and the results are overwhelming. With OCKERWASSER Sonne Hagal has achieved the finest expression of their artistic voice through their inimitable vocals. It is a collective voice that wrenches beauty and sadness, tragedy and hope, bitterness and strength. This is the voice that is not only a voice but an instrument, a medium, a vehicle. The voice of Sonne Hagal is both singular and collective, and the voices in our head join a choir of the inner self; a choir of the unknown; a choir of lost dreams and new fantasies. On OCKERWASSER, Sonne Hagal has engaged guest appearances from an international array of artists, including such artists as Kim Larsen (Of the Wand and the Moon), Ericah Hagle (Unto Ashes), Leithana (Ordo Equitum Solis), Bo Rande, Matthias Krause (Vurgart). Ultimately, OCKERWASSER is unmistakable Sonne Hagal, rendering their own unique vision of music which transcends any genre. For years we have been longing for a new full-length album by Sonne Hagal; suffice is to say that OCKERWASSER is Sonne Hagal's masterwork that we never allowed ourselves to hope for.
