2017-03-17       17 Mar / 2017

We are now taking pre-orders for the following title:

New offering from Russia’s shamanic ritualists PHURPA. Channeling the void with their eerie and engulfing overtone ritual chants rooted in the BON tradition of Tibet, their mesmerising rituals are used as a tool of transmogrification. The chanting meditations are accentuated by the use nga drums, rolmo cymbals, gyaling oboes, as well as telescopic dunchen horns, dunkar shells and short wandun horns. Their performances are meant as exercises in aural power, channeled primordial sounds aimed to alter ones consciousness, otherworldly prayer mantras pulsating through the chakras.  This exhaustive Double album was recorded in Moscow, Russia in March 2016. Let go and touch the emptiness…
Edition of 500 Copies in Gatefold A5 sleeve. 4 Tracks on 2 CDs. Running Time 2:03:36

PETER BJÄRGÖ “Animus Retinentia" CD (90th Cycle)

2017-03-01       01 Mar / 2017

-Out Now -

New full lenght by PETER BJÄRGÖ "Animus Retinentia" CD (90th Cycle)

3rd full length album by ARCANA / SOPHIA mastermind Peter Bjärgö. On his solo works we hear the perfect blend of his previous incarnations where dreamy piano parts, rhythmic percussions and his now trade mark acoustic guitar, all blended into perfection. Solemn vocals filled with lyrics of distress and mournfulness lull us into the nether. Filled with nostalgia and longing of a lost world, "Animus Retinentia" forms a threshold into another world where glimpses of light always shine through. A splendid follow up to his previous solo works and dare we say, his best yet. 

Edition of 500 copies in 6 panel Digipack. 11 Tracks. Running Time 45:55

DESIDERII MARGINIS "Songs Over Ruins" CD/LP (89th Cycle)

2017-01-07       07 Jan / 2017

Pre-Orders now taken for the re-issue of the long out of print debut by DESIDERII MARGINIS.
Available January 27 2017

DESIDERII MARGINIS long out of print debut album from 1997 “Songs Over Ruins” is given a proper re-issue, carefully remastered by Johan Levin himself and with new artworks as CD and limited edition LP. A landmark in the genre, with it’s desolate, minimalistic and grief stricken odes to religious and spiritual burdens. A foray through abandoned ruins and a reflection on the passing of time and the impermanence of all things physical. Outstanding in quality and production skills, this mesmerizing and foreboding journey is at times tranquil and melodic and also dives into more martial like percussive elements and industrial atmospheres. Classics like these definitely need to be discovered still and also rediscovered, and it’s with great pleasure that we make it available once again.

CD Edition of 500 Copies in 6 panels Digipack with Matt finish.
LP Edition of 250 Copies with printed inner sleeve and Matt finish cover.

SHRINE "Ordeal 26.04.86" CD (88th Cycle) Out Now!

2016-10-26       26 Oct / 2016

The new full length by SHRINE is dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster that happened on April 26th, 1986. Composed during a post-operative convalescence period in 2015 Hristo Gospodinov says of the process: “To me the Chernobyl theme has always been very special not only because I witnessed the nuclear sunburn effects myself back in 1986 when I was a kid, but also because I find it to be the closest glimpse of a pending apocalypse we have seen so far. I find it terrifying not only because of the devastating effect of the ionizing radiation itself, but also because it was a man-made event. To me, the parallel with the biblical book of Revelation is inescapable.” Laced with emotional distress and SHRINE’s superbly crafted soundscapes and notable sound design skills, “Ordeal 26.04.86” serves as a tribute to those that suffered, and still suffer from the irreparable. Events like this one have happened again since, the most recent being in Japan’s Fukushima, and there’s definite signs that in the future we’ll unfortunately witness more of these man made catastrophes, in that eventuality, “Ordeal” will serve as the perfect soundtrack. Artwork by Dehn Sora and Hristo Gospodinov.
Edition of 500 copies in 4 panel Digipack. 6 Tracks, 50:00
