Heimdalls Wacht EP + shirts out now

Out now: Heimdalls Wacht “Ursprung” MCD. In 2009, Heimdalls Wacht did a split with Heervader and Winterlieke. The split CD sold out instantly and the lengthy track “Threnos” became a favourite song for many people. Except on a limited compilation tape, the track was not reissued due to various reasons. The song marked a part of what was to be come three pieces of a puzzle that should be seen as a whole, with the two other parts released on later albums. Now the circle is complete and it’s time to bring them together. These songs are very important and even quintessential pieces of art for Heimdalls Wacht. After years of requests, we decided to unite the three “Ursprung” songs together on one release. The listener may know the other two parts appeared on “Ut de graute olle Tied – Deel II” and “Mystagogie”. All tracks are now compiled and united on this “Ursprung” EP.

Also available again on t-shirt and girlie: the Logo/Rune in dark grey on black.

Drevorod and Drunemeton new albums out now!

Some of my favourite pagan black metal albums released last year are Gromoverzh, Theudho, Rites Of Tara, Slavland, Wojnar, Diabolical Fullmoon. Let’s continue those standards and start 2024 with two anticipated full lengths in the genre. Two albums that can both be described as pagan black metal though they do not sound alike at all.

Drunemeton – “Tir Nan Og“. Highly recommended to fans of Graveland, Bathory and Ancestors Blood. OUT NOW!

Drevorod – “Anthems of Soil and Stars“. Highly recommended to fans of Drudkh, Temnozor and Nokturnal Mortum. OUT NOW!
