Pre-Order:
AJNA
“Lucid Intrusion” CD
(116th Cycle)
We gladly welcome US based AJNA to the fold. A lucid dream turned nightmare as vast amounts of images haunt the subconscious. Is this all an act of subconscious? Can this be all lodged into the psyche? Or perhaps it’s a sign of mental illness. Or are spirits a true phenomena? This kind of experience is entirely surreal and subjective, however, one may never know if spirits truly exist. Deep, slow drifting isolationist soundscapes. The album as a whole explores the questionable existence of spirits.
Edition of 300 copies in 4 panel Digisleeve. 9 Tracks. Running Time 58:46
BONINI BULGA
“Sealed” CD
(117th Cycle)
Sweden’s enigmatic and highly productive Pär Boström of KAMMARHEIT, CITIES LAST BROADCAST and ALTARMANG presents yet another singular project under the name BONINI BULGA. His debut “Sealed” was originally recorded and released in 2017 as a limited edition cassette on Boström’s own label Hypnagoga Press. We gladly present a remastered and extended version of this release. In recent years Boström has been exploring new sonic territories through his various projects, and with BONINI BULGA he’s chosen a more lo-fi loop based approach to his musical creations, bleak and minimalistic, we journey through a careful blend of processed analog synth layers and poignant revolving passages. This expanded edition includes three new tracks, which further exposes Boström’s unique vision and creative pact with the unknown, giving listeners the complete scope of his contemplative sonic magick.
Edition of 500 copies in a special 10 panel, cross fold out Digipak. 8 Tracks. Running Time 49:02
Latest Titles:
VORTEX
“As Gods Fall” 2CD
(126th Cycle)
“As Gods Fall” celebrates the 10th year of existence for the German ritual cinematic ambient project by Marcus Stiglegger. It is the final part of the mythical trilogy that began with “Kali Yuga” (2013) and “Moloch” (2015). Inspired by the Nordic mythology of the Edda, this album revives the realm of the Old Gods in their final conflict. As before this musical reflection on mythology is used as a metaphor for a portrait of the present world out of balance. The tracks were composed after a intense journey to the ancient viking relics of Scandinavia in 2015: “Breathing the air of history I felt ultimately connected to the past and heritage of the old Germanic tribes and their mythology, also understanding what this all means for what happens in the world today. “As Gods Fall” is a cycle of music invoking forgotten energies and lost wisdom…” For this album Marcus S. joined forces with many guest (including Michael De Victor of While Angels Watch), providing unique instrumental and vocal contributions. From pounding martial rhythms and hypnotic ritual chants via brooding drones to stunning and fragile melodic elements this album captures the essence of what Vortex stands for: ritual music. The album was recorded from the summer of 2015 to the winter of 2017 and finally mastered by Frederic Arbour in 2018. Stunning artwork was created by Nihil.
This release also contains a bonus-disc “Helstrom” featuring 2 unreleased Vortex tracks as well as remixes by Apoptose, Empusae, Phelios, Visions, Operation Cleansweep and more…

ARCANA
“Dark Age Of Reason” CD/LP
(122nd Cycle)
Now 22 years since it’s original release, we present ARCANA’s first album in it’s original length, remastered and with new artwork on both CD and Vinyl. Very few bands evoke such awe and inspiration than this Swedish act driven by the now legendary talent of Peter Bjärgö. ARCANA have been pillars and always at the forefront of the so called Neo Classical / Heavenly Voices movement with their poignant, ethereal and medieval inspired music. Sorrowful strings, doomsday horns and trumpets, massive percussion and snares, bells, dulcimer all interlaced with exquisite Male and Female voices create a quite singular atmosphere of grandeur and of melancholy for times long gone… Rejoice once again, or for the first time, in this timeless recording.
