Woodland Denizens…Unite!

News


A Northern Union…

Big news in the Bindrune camp!

nordvis-logofinal svartIn an effort to battle the mounting shipping costs and to reconnect with each of our overseas followers, Bindrune Recordings and Nordvis have forged an international union! Both entities maintain a close relationship with nature and tend to align with bands who share similar values. This union aesthetically, spiritually and conceptually makes perfect sense.

Nordvis… surrounded by the rich environs of Northern Sweden, this label has built an impressive roster of bands and catalog of artistic releases that span both the moving atmospheres of black metal (Stilla, Lustre, Grift, Skogen, Lik), into more neo folk territories with Ebon Lore. Not afraid to take chances and holding artistic pursuits above all, this is a label that has been cutting out an impressive name and we are honored to be working with them/looking forward to bring their music to these shores for all of you.

So what does this mean? Bindrune Recordings will be the exclusive distributor for Nordvis titles in North America and Nordvis will be doing the same for Bindrune titles in Scandinavia and Europe. This includes past and in some cases each of us manufacturing each others future releases in our respective territories in the future. This benefits all of you who have been missing out on each of these creative and forward thinking labels releases due to insane postage costs. As we work to finalize/execute a large shifting of our back catalogs to each other, Bindrune is working to prepare the Webshop for the Nordvis arrival and that should be completed next week.

More info will be announced as it becomes available, like the arrival of the impending SKOGEN – I Döden, CD (Nordvis) which will be released on 04/07/14.

More info on Skogen and song samples for I Döden will be added to this site soon!

In the meantime, here is the full list of titles that will be arriving to the webshop in the coming week(s).

Until next update…. Woodland Denizen unite! Indeed.

SKOGEN – I Döden, CD (04/07/14 Release Date)
Stilla - Ensamhetens Andar CD
Stilla – Till Stilla Falla CD
Grift – Fyra elegier MCD
Ebon Lore – Wisdom of the Owl MCD
Lustre – Of Strength and Solace MCD
The Crevices Below – Below the Crevices CD
Lik – The Second Wind CD
Fen/de arma – Towards the Shores of the End CD

Until next update…. Woodland Denizen unite! Indeed.

Falls of Rauros/Panopticon – Split 12″ PRE-ORDERS now accepted!

pan-falls splitWe are thrilled to announce that the Falls of Rauros/Panopticon split 12” has gone off to the pressing plant and we are now accepting Pre-Orders!

New material from Panopticon and Falls of Rauros, 2 of the US’s most prominent and prolific black/forest/heathen metal bands, will be unleashed by Bindrune in the form of a split 12”. Limited to 500 copies (with a download card), this split features exclusive to vinyl only material that was inspired by both bands time spent together in Norway.

Track listing:
Falls of Rauros side
- Unavailing 11:53
-The Purity of Isolation 6:45

Panopticon side
-Through Mountains I Wander This Evening 4:33
-Can you Loan me a Raven? 7:29
-Gods of Flame 4:26
-One Cold Night 7:56

Panopticon: The mountains, landscapes, and memories of living and studying in Norway have crept into Austin/Panopticon’s ever evolving and vital sound to embody more of a stripped down and dark Norwegian BM influenced atmosphere for this release which harkens back to Panopticon’s more aggressive and raw S/T album. This is in no way indicative of the genre bending and highly evolved impending full-length, Roads to the North, in which Austin has pulled out all the stops to create his most personal and technically amazing material yet that finds melodic death metal elements entering an already rich color pallet of sound. The 4 songs on this split embrace the pure essence and influence of the 90′s Norwegian black metal movement in all of its driving, chilling and endlessly atmospheric grimness. Panopticon is passion for creating music in all it’s empowering forms, to arrive at something pure and with deep meaning. It’s hard not to be overtaken by the strength and conviction of this material as it sparks at the air like a live wire…

Falls of Rauros: For their side of this split, Falls of Rauros embrace more of a noticeable evolution that opens up with expansive musical exploration. Such an exciting growth musically has become further realized on the bands upcoming, awe-inspiring 4th full-length album, “Believe in No Coming Shore”. While maintaining a ferocity that was felt on “The Light that Dwells in Rotten Wood”, Falls of Rauros skillfully reach outward with free flowing and at times tranquil guitar work that truly brings even more life in to co-exist within their already impressive songwriting skills. Falls achieve evolution without forsaking their past. The result is endlessly vibrant and fulfilling to the core as only this band can be. Unavailing and The Purity of Isolation were both recorded by the band and stand to introduce the listener to the amazing musical works that will be coming from them in several months time. Trust us friends… it is well worth the wait…

This unique sense of self and overall vision set forth by both musical entities is a refreshing breath of fresh air as black metal as a whole struggles with it’s worldwide popularity and fleeting muse.

**The First 100 pre-orders of this 12” in any color combination, will receive screen printed logo patches from BOTH Falls of Rauros and Panopticon**

Meine Fesseln is a stirring album that embraces a woodland black metal aesthetic, while implementing folk and emotive atmospheres to encourage the listeners thoughts to wander through landscapes where the mist holds court over the land. With a full-arsenal of guest musicians that did guest spots on this album, Meine Fesseln is a very eclectic and mature work of art that yearns for a wider reach and Bindrune is thrilled to bring this opus to North America.

For Meine Fesseln, Winterherz worked with high-profile guest musicians and longtime friends:

Drums: Tobias Schuler of ‚Der Weg einer Freiheit‘ and ‚Fuck You and Die‘
Solo guitar, mandolin and vocals: A.Lunn of ‚Panopticon‘ and ‚Seidr‘
Violin: Johann Becker of ‚Austaras‘ and ‚Vukari‘
Kantele: Janne Väätäinen of ‚Haive‘
Piano: Lukas Danninger of ‚The Course is Black‘
Additional Vocals: Arvagr of ‚Dagnir en Gwann‘
Electronics: Aimo Fuchs

Tracklist ‚Meine Fesseln‘
01. Der Nebel
02. Karhunkierros
03. Wie eine Weide im Wind
04. Trauerweide Teil I
05. Wenn die Morgensonn…
06. Mit welchen Fesseln
07. Trauerweide Teil II

And the critics preach praise for Meine Fesseln!

Waldgeflüster’s rich, organic sound manages to come across as passionate and emotive without ever missing the mark and descending into schmaltzy melodrama, and exudes a warm, heartfelt atmosphere that’ll have you reaching for that play button again and again. At times, it’s strongly reminiscent of early Negură Bunget, or perhaps a more overtly melancholy Panopticon (fitting then, that ‘Meine Fesseln’ features a guest appearance from Panopticon’s Austin Lunn himself, contributing mandolin, vocals, and guitar solos to several of its tracks). -Terrorizer

Unless you speak German (I do not), you might have to do some translation in order to understand what’s being said, but there’s no emotional barrier when it comes to the music. It’s righteously heavy when it needs to be, positively beautiful in spots, and perfect for this time of year in North America. Waldgeflüster is a project that helps you appreciate these days and see them as glorious and freeing, and “Meine Fesseln” is a magnificent way to spend these days. I can’t stop listening to the damn thing, and if you’re in the same mindframe as I am, you’ll be in the same frost-encrusted boat. -Meat Mead Metal

Meine Fesseln easily surpasses 2011′s Femundsmarka – Eine Reise in drei Kapiteln, and ranks among Bindrune’s best releases to date, as evidenced by the fact I’m nearing my tenth play-through and the album has yet to show any wear. This is a deeply personal work that reminds one of extreme music’s potential to be art. Don’t let these ‘forest whispers’ pass you by. -Worm Gear Zine

The album as a whole interminably focuses on creating triumphant melodies which burst with vitality, enrapturing with the force of nature behind it. Imagine forestland as far as the eye can see, laden with trickling streams, birdsong and sunbeams breaking through the breezy canopy, before torrential rainfall begins battering the idyllic scene, bringing inexorable electrical storms of fire and brimstone to cleanse the landscape of all life. Yet two of the many untameable and unpredictable faces of nature captured and distilled into aural form for your listening pleasure. The starkness and simplicity of light and dark, laid bare and combined in musical matrimony. -Ave Noctum

Waldgeflüster weaves together black metal and pastoral neo-folk in an unexpectedly organic way. There may still be screaming and blast beats, but it’s also beautiful in its depressive glory. -Decibel

Meine Fesseln will be up later this weekend on our Bandcamp page as well for streaming and digital purchase!

$24.00

**FREE Shipping in the U.S.!**
Order Vex – Memorious 2LP HERE!

The wait is finally over!! The debut release from Eihwaz Recordings, the death metal sub-label of Bindrune Recordings is now available!

This package is a 2LP black vinyl set containing an insert/lyric sheet housed in a heavy jacket (not gatefold) with a 5MM spine. The vinyl is cut at 45 RPM. Limited to 250 copies.

Memorious is utterly unique and bloated with atypical melodies/harmonies. The 2nd full-length from the Texas born Vex is an eye opener of an album with superior songwriting and a style so skillfully enveloped by the olden years of melodic death metal. Memorious first of all benefits from a super tight performance. Secondly, the riffs are downright inspired and colorized by what sound like effortlessly flowing melodies, but the way they are draped over the chord progressions, it feels so alive yet complex, like an easy moving river cutting through a dense woodland.

Originally released on CD by HPGD Productions, Eihwaz has given this excellent release the vinyl treatment for those of you out there addicted to the warm analog tones! The pressing is limited, so act fast!

Panopticon and Waldgeflüster join with Bindrune!

Having gone through 2013 relatively dormant, Bindrune is ending with a bang with Seidr’s Ginnungagap and the impending Falls of Rauros/Panopticon split LP….

But there is more exciting news now ready for unveiling and a look at the releases in the works for the remainder of 2013, and well into 2014. This is by far Bindrune’s most ambitious time ever and what could be a make or break year…

NEW BAND PHOTOWe are honored to announce the signing of the statement making, genre expanding and emotion stirring Panopticon!

Austin Lunn, sole visionary and talented multi-instrumentalist has chosen to relocate this highly personal and genre defying musical entity to join the growing Bindrune family.

Kentucky was a groundbreaking and highly revered album for Panopticon and with Panopticon’s impending 6th full-length, Roads to the North, Austin has stated that this is his most personal work yet.

Panopticon is a band that has earned the respect of a wide fan base and Bindrune is thrilled to have been given the chance to bring Austin’s vision to the masses. More info will be shared as it becomes realized…

2013-06-05-Waldgefluester-008_WEB
We are also proud to announce the impending union between Germany’s Waldgeflüster and Bindrune Recordings!

If you have never heard this band before, expect sweeping and endlessly atmospheric black metal full of passion and a deeply emotional tie to nature. We shall be releasing the bands 3rd full-length album here in N. America while their label Black Blood Productions handles the European pressing. The band has been working hard to crack into the states and make it easier for their fans here to obtain their music and we are honored to help promote and bring their stunning work to a wider audience. The CD will be released in January as well, but we shall offer more news once it is available!

To hear Ginnungagap in its entirety, our friends at The Gauntlet were kind enough to stream the release here: http://www.thegauntlet.com/music/259/Seidr-Ginnungagap-full-album

Behold… the fires grow and release sparks skyward to join with the cosmos where infinity invites the energy to rest within her solar womb. Ginnungagap has built upon the endlessly impressive foundation constructed on the debut with more elements of drone, folk and an even deeper glimpse into the emotions and spiritual conflict of the trio behind Seidr as they glimpse with wonder to the heavens to ponder the age old questions, “why am I here and how do I use the star stuff coursing through my veins to make sense of it all?” Difficult questions sure to cross the minds of all of us, but this band truly poured their souls into the creation of this release, so that the outcome shines with an endlessly crushing and hauntingly beautiful answer… the beginning and ending is irrelevant… the universe has always existed, and will always exist.

With an organic and dense sound field captured by the band and further realized/mixed/mastered by Colin Marston, Ginnungagap is an endlessly deep well of sound textures that sculpt these songs with reverence and envelope them with waves of sincerity. With hearty contributions to this album by Chet Scott (Blood of the Black Owl/Cycle of the Raven Talons), Jack Hannert (Kolga/Giant Kind) and Kyle (Lake of Blood), Ginnungagap is a product of close friends and spiritual family coming together to create one of the best albums you will hear in 2013, if not in recent memory and Bindrune is thankful to bring this labor of love home to all of you.

“each moment of motion reveals that there’s a ghost clearly in this machine, some engrained idiosyncrasy tearing the track apart from the inside. The rhythm slides wildly against the riff, and ghoulish harmonies conjure an outward, near-astral projection.” -Pitchfork

“The songwriting is simultaneously more ambitious and focused, with a strong sense of travel and change throughout the album. This is a vital quality for a band writing songs as long as 25 minutes (!!!) long, and Seidr shows an excellent sense for reining in these massive tracks with only the most essential riffs and constant variation from ominous dirges, triumphant ascents from the darkness, cold and unearthly electronics, and even a rousing, beautiful folk track.” -Worm Gear Zine
