Panopticon “Kentucky” Pre-Orders now being accepted!!

kentucky_bannerPanopticon – Kentucky CD/2LP/Shirt Pre-orders now be accepted!

Release date – June 2nd

With Panopticon’s 5th full-length album, Kentucky, Austin Lunn pushed the boundaries and blurred the lines between melodic US black metal and folk driven Americana. Bluegrass, with its high and lonesome sound and cultural and emotional significance, provided the perfect backdrop for Austin’s lyrical exploration of the Kentucky’s rich cultural heritage and unique environment as well as coal miner’s plight to stand up against the cruelty of a greed driven fossil fuel industry as they struggled to organize a union to fight against horrific working conditions. The album is about more than just coal mining history…it is a love letter to the ” blue grass state” and the beautiful people and places contained within its borders.

The intensity unleashed by Austin’s black metal roots acted as a contrast alongside beautiful acoustic numbers that intermingled with the distortion to further empower the message upheld by this album. Pointing out the corruption and mistreatment of people and the envrionment by those in power isn’t a new concept, in fact it’s even more important now than it ever was, but let us not forget those who came before us who suffered and died fighting back for better pay, preservation of the environment and safer working conditions.

To this day, Kentucky stands as Panopticon’s break thru album, filled with passion and fire for the subject matter it describes. The album presents a stark change from the preceding full lengths, “Social Disservices” and “On the Subject Of Mortality” as is leaves some of the darker, more traditional “Black” metal elements behind, in favor of more melodic and harmonious territory, opting instead to sit comfortably as “North American Folk Metal”.

The folks behind Bindrune Recordings and Nordvis Produktion are proud to bring this album to the masses once again on LP and CD. As with each pressing of this record it features a variant of the original art, the cover being graced with a different beautiful and natural place in Kentucky. The CD comes with an expanded booklet featuring lyrics and liner notes accidentally omitted from the original release.

VAiya – Remnant Light NOW AVAILABLE!

coverVAIYAremnantlightVaiya – Remnant Light CD/LP RELEASED TODAY!!
Vaiya’s third album ‘Remnant Light’ is an aggressive ritual banishment of the darkest aspects of the ego. A progression upward toward the light and away from that which drags us down. Told through three thirteen minute tracks, ‘Remnant Light’ seeks to exalt the journey toward bliss and repel the darkness that aims to destroy true being.
This album is a more straight forward Black Metal record than the two previous Vaiya releases, which were written specifically for live ritual performance, thus, there is more emphasis put on dense atmosphere and layered instrumentation.
1. Confrontation
2. Banishment
3. Transformation
With limited quantities here in the US, it would be wise to act fast on this deep and ritually moving piece of atmospheric/black influenced music.

Obsidian Tongue news!

NEWS: Obsidian Tongue


It has been some time since we announced the signing of Obsidian Tongue, but life, changes and hard work have been at the forefront of this innovative band’s existence. You’re all about to experience the re-awakening!

Obsidian Tongue has relocated to Portland, Maine, and with the departure of original drummer, Greg Murphy, Brendan Hayter has enlisted the supreme talents of Ray Capizzo (Falls of Rauros, Panopticon) to assume the drum throne. Ray’s ability and creativity has further edged the new Obsidian Tongue material to mind blowing and progressive heights as this 2 piece has finished the material for their impending, yet untitled follow-up to the impressive “A Nest of Ravens in the Throat of Time”.

Regarding the new album and material, Brendan had this to say, “We’re about to start recording the third full length, which doesn’t have a confirmed title at the moment but it will very soon. The new stuff is our most progressive to date – 3 of the songs are 14+ minutes long, and is a continuation of the style introduced on The Lakeside Redemption, expanding to include our most crushingly heavy and heartbreakingly melodic moments alike…emotional and epic while still remaining raw and stripped down.”

Along with writing the material for what will likely be a double album, Obsidian Tongue has been busy staying in the public eye with live performances opening for the likes of Abbath, Wolves in the Throne Room and Negura Bunget. Having been named by Metal Injection as the “Best black metal band in Massachusets”, Obsidian Tongue continues to grow creatively and are currently preparing for an east coast trek with their brothers in Falls of Rauros (Tour dates listed Below).

We shall be offering more information regarding the new album and merchandise as it becomes available. In the meantime, we shall leave you with a rehearsal video that demonstrates the direction and power soon to be unveiled by Obsidian Tongue and Bindrune in the months to come! Enjoy and spread the word!

Eneferens Join with Bindrune/Nordvis!

eneferens1Bindrune Recordings and Nordvis Produktion are pleased to announce the signing of Montana’s Eneferens!

The realm of doom metal has it’s own life and special place in the pantheon of musicians who feel at home embracing the dark/downtrodden themes and sounds unleashed by this colorful musical medium. Eneferens planted its flag so to speak with 2 impressive releases last year that caught our ear thanks to sole innovator, Jori Apedaile’s, brilliant take on the genre. “In The Hours Beneath and “The Inward Cold” were both released independently and feature a form of doom that is empowered by deep death and black metal stylistic traits that weave in superior harmonies and unshakable moments of melancholy which bring to mind the olden years of Katatonia and other doom influenced innovators found lurking in the early 90′s. With varying vocal styles and a touch of folk instrumentation, Eneferens has unveiled a well of inspiration and indication of the quality yet to come.

Bindrune and Nordvis shall be giving Eneferens most recent opus, In The Hours Beneath, a worldwide release on CD/LP/Digital in the coming months as Jori continues to prepare his follow-up release slated for late fall/early winter.

Eneferens is a powerful force upcoming in the underground and we are honored to help bring this music to the woodland masses!

Stay tuned for more news as it becomes available!

Australia’s Vaiya join with the Bindrune and Nordvis family!

VAIYA PROMO smallerWe’d like to welcome R. Allen, the sole member of the ritualistic musical outlet VAIYA, to the Nordvis as well as the Bindrune family.

VAIYA, sprung out of a wilderness lifestyle based in the back-lands of Australia, definitely shares similar visions as we do, both in terms of musical expressions and ways of living deeply rooted to the wild. We’re very much looking forward to this collaboration and we believe this will turn out most interesting for you who appreciate what we’re doing and been doing in the past.

We will bring you VAIYA’s previously self-released 2nd album ”Remnant Light” in late spring. The album will come as a new CD edition with revised artwork as well as a limited Vinyl edition.

Followers of Wolves in the Throne Room and Panopticon will feel at home within the music of VAIYA.

Stay tuned for more information.

Here’s a video teaser previewing what is to come….

Coldfells news!

coldfells_bandWe are proud to announce, that as of Monday January 9th, Coldfells album is off to press. We have decided to limit this release to an EXTREMELY LIMITED edition of 100 hand numbered copies worldwide on vinyl only (digital download will also be available). No exact release date is set. This album will NOT be re-pressed when it sells out. The album will be a dual release with Bindrune Recordings and Eihwaz Records. In addition to the limited release, Coldfells will be performing the album in its entirety at a location and date tba.

You will be able to purchase the limited edition vinyl records as part of a package at this performance before the label(s) release.

For those of you that haven’t heard of this project, Coldfells is the brainchild of Johnny Doyle (Plagueweilder, Horse Drawn). Joined by Aaron Carey and Andrew D’Cagna from Nechochwen, what started out as a Middle Earth inspired black doom project, has developed to embrace their own vibrant and original sound. We will be sharing more information about the impending album soon!

Paths join with Bindrune!

Paths-band-logoWe are excited to share with all of you, the signing of Victoria, British Columbia’s Paths!

Formed in 2013, Paths have evolved from psychedelic laced black metal beginnings, to embrace more of a grand in scope atmosphere, more properly upholding and defining the beauty of their surroundings through the dense music they create.

With Paths impending 3rd full-length album, “In Lands Thought Lost”, sole songwriter Michael Taylor has perfected his emotion and dream inducing wave of sound/songwriting to embrace the building blocks of black metal by way of a mild Scandinavian influence, mixed with a powerful Pacific Northwest bite. The results are powerful/world building and we are thrilled to bring this creative entity into the Bindrune family.

“In Lands Thought Lost” is a gripping statement and even in it’s early recorded form, grabbed the ear of Austin Lunn (Panopticon) who volunteered to re-record drums for the album to replace Michael’s carefully constructed synthetic drums, for more of an organic result.

As the duo strive to put the finishing touches on the album, look for a vinyl (first) and CD (Later) release this spring.

More information (Album art and track listing) regarding “In Lands Thought Lost” will be shared as it becomes available.

Thank you one and all for your attention and support. Please spread the news!

2017 Eihwaz Recordings news and sale!!


Three and a half years ago, Eihwaz Recordings arrived on the scene as an extension of Bindrune Recordings. Constructed as a means to release extreme sounds not necessarily fitting within the carefully-cultivated Bindrune aesthetic, Eihwaz has since that time developed its own identity and increased in scale to the point where the time is right for the label to begin a new journey.

From this point forward, Eihwaz Recordings is now a separate entity managed by Jim Clifton, but collaborations between the two labels will continue. More on that later, but for now, visit the entirely new Eihwaz Recordings distro ( , with sigil art courtesy of the great Nate Burns), and enjoy 25% off any orders until January 25th!

Simply type in NEWIN2017 at checkout. Thanks to all who have and will continue to support Eihwaz in the future, and please share this news with all in the underground!
