Wilt and Bindrune unite!

wilt_logoWe are thrilled to announce that Winnipeg, Manitoba’s own Wilt has joined the Bindrune family of bands!

Beginning as a 2 piece, but evolving into a full touring band, Wilt struck a chord in 2012 with their endlessly atmospheric and emotive 4 song self titled EP. Deeply melancholic, the bands sound is a dense and melodic decent into the depressive black metal realm, but the band inject their own spirit into the genre by way of heavy and unique doom elements to keep their sound diverse and draped in a mournful

wilt_bandHaving been toiling over new material for some time now, Wilt are currently in the studio recording their 1st full-length effort, Moving Monoliths, which Bindrune shall be releasing in September/October on CD and a limited 2LP set. From the 2 new demo tracks we have heard representing this upcoming release, expect an even more oppressive weight upon your soul by way of hypnotic dirges into the black. Wilt are planning a mini US tour in support of Moving Monoliths. More info on all of that as it becomes realized!

In the meantime, we will be getting in copies of the MLP soon for sale! Enjoy a live clip and get ready for more news later this weekened!

Ahamkara – The Embers of the Stars PRE-ORDER!!



Ahamkara – The Embers of the Stars Digipak CD

Stunningly atmospheric black metal from england, Ahamkara envelops the wonder of the stars and rekindles a majesty rarely touched upon by bands from these modern times!

Here’s what the critics are saying….

This two-man UK project succeeds in distilling an outsized amount of talent into only four songs (though since none of them is under ten minutes long,there is plenty of space to fill, and the result is a complex and emotional work that lesser atmospheric black metal bands often aspire to without success.

This sweeping music is perfect for Black Metal that’s inspired by nature and seeks to channel it via a darkened Metal route. Each of these songs is extremely well composed and gives the feeling of really being in the raw, dangerous outdoors. -Wonderbox Metal

To pre-order this fantastic album, follow the portal which suits your location best…

«draumr ást» out now with full album stream available via decibel magazine!!

IMG_20141129_020042Today, on December 1st, the long wait for BHLEG’s debut “Draumr Ást” is finally over, and the digipak with its beautiful 12-page booklet should already be in the hands of a few fortunate people. The reviews have begun arriving with large publications such as Norways Scream Magazine granting it a 6 out of 6, The Metal Observer a 9 out of 10 and German sites and thought it deserved 8/10 and 6.5/7 respectively.

“…There are many nice touches on the album, in fact, too many to individually acknowledge, but taken as a whole, Draumr Ást should cement itself as a modern black metal classic, comfortable in its old school skin but confident to try a few new things as well. Most bands can only dream to release a debut as refined and sophisticated as Draumr Ást, but Bhleg has obviously proven they are that rare and exceptional talent.” – The Metal Observer

To celebrate this occasion we have teamed up with DECIBEL MAGAZINE to provide you with a full-album stream and an interview.

Simply follow this link:

**NOTE** If you have ordered this CD along with any other of our current pre-orders, the disc will be shipped when all items are in from the pressing plant and processed!

Obsidian Tongue join the Bindrune Family!




Bindrune Recordings is proud and honored to announce the recent arrival of Boston, MA’s innovative and mystical duo, Obsidian Tongue to unite with our growing brotherhood of artists.

Upon hearing and connecting with the stunning A Nest of Ravens in the Throat of Time CD released this past year by the excellent Hypnotic Dirge Records, we were inspired to work with this passionate and powerful band.

As the band continues to work on material that will become their third full-length slated for a 2015 release, the band recently entered the studio to record the lengthy track, “Lakeside Redemption” that will find its way on a 4 way split cassette release with fellow statesmen and Bindrune artist Infera Bruo along with 2 other local bands. The song demonstrates an even more fierce delivery and layered atmosphere as the band continues to evolve and tighten up their already multifaceted sound.

More news will surface in the coming days regarding that split, live events and of course studio tid-bits as the band begins work on the follow-up for “Ravens” for Bindrune Recordings.

In the mean time, be sure to check out the newly added Obsidian Tongue link to our ‘Bands” portal for more pics and a very in-depth bio to further introduce you to this excellent band.

Pre-Orders for Falls of Rauros and Unwilling Flesh announced!

We are pleased to offer Pre-orders for the following titles:

Falls_Believe_coverFalls of Rauros – Believe in no Coming Shore Digipak CD  Pre-Order (pre-order comes with a free logo patch!)

Believe in no Coming Shore, Falls of Rauros’ much anticipated 3rd album, is a masterwork of emotive and passionate black metal influenced music, that finds this Maine quartet evolving even deeper into their art and love for their instruments.

Thoughts on the album run wild, for this opus finds Falls really coming in to their own special and vibrant sound. The harsh/desperately screamed vocals are still in full force, as are the fundamentals of their atmospherically charged form of black metal, but Believe in no Coming Shore unlocks a brilliant web of passionate guitar work that seizes the spirit of Americana, rock, folk and most importantly… freedom. The very thought of it spills out of this amazing work. Such careful integration feels like an extension of this bands spiritual core and the music takes on a hypnotic wanderlust to carry the listener deeper into the aether.
Due to insane delays at the pressing plant, the LP version of this release will not be available until December. Pre-orders will be announced when the gap is filled a bit.

“This album is a real success, because it’s typically what everybody expected from the band after their last efforts. After some demos and a first album which didn’t convince me, Falls of Rauros are now building a coherent and strong discography. Be it their musicianship, the feelings their songs carry or the maturity of their whole work, they’re surely one of the best american black metal acts we’ve got today.” -Ethereal Soundscapes

“Some of the heavy hitters in the world of woodsy atmospheric black metal (Agalloch, Wolves In The Throne Room) are going to have to make room for a new oak in their forest. Falls Of Rauros, from the other Portland, were always really good, but with their upcoming LP, Believe In No Coming Shore, they’re officially great.” – Stereogum

US/Canada customers order direct from Bindrune here:

For the European customers, Nordvis have also launched their pre-order campaign today as well for Falls of Rauros and are also offering free logo patches with your pre-order!  Go here and stake your claim!


unwilling flesh cover_smaller2Unwilling Flesh – Between the Living and the Dead Digi-wallet CD Pre-Order (Pre-order comes with a free logo patch!)

Carnage. Eucharist. Excretion. The sounds of these early ’90s Swedeath bands inspired multi-instrumentalist Andrew D’Cagna (Brimstone Coven, Obsequiae, Nechochwen, Infirmary) to mine his prodigious talents for the purpose of the ‘blatant, shameless’ Swedish Death Metal devotion of Unwilling Flesh. Handling vocals and all instruments (with co-conspirator Aaron Carey, also of Nechochwen & Infimary, graciously providing skilled and memorable leadwork), D’Cagna has willfully allowed the rusted-chainsaw guitars and lacerated roars of an OSDM muse to guide his hand toward developing this heathen hallelujah meant to honor those once and always Full of Hell: Eihwaz Recordings next release, the debut of Unwilling Flesh, Between the Living and the Dead. Friends, if you scoff at über-clean, ‘modern’ death metal, if you hold scorn at the homogenization of what once was, then the hearkening back of Unwilling Flesh is for you.

“But guitar tone and even riff mastery do not alone make for an album as fine and faithful as this one. D’Cagna has also written actual songs, with distinctive melodies of the kind that still make the songs on Slaughter of the Soul command such strong allegiance almost 20 years after its debut. They’re more ghoulish and morbid than they are pretty, that’s for sure, but they’re very effective at digging their hooks into your head and holding fast.” - No Clean Singing

“That patented Sunlight sound is out in full force here – the band buzzing and grinding their way through nine tracks of unadulterated old school worship that exhumes, re-animates and prostitutes the bile-soaked sounds of Eucharist, Desultory, Entombed and Unanimated to the fullest. They’re quite melodically inclined though, with numbers like “Fathoms Unfound” and “At One with the Earth” spliced with a batch of melodies that run the gamut from breezy (the former) to creepy (the latter).” - The Metal Observer
