Eihwaz Recordings proudly announces the signing of Minneapolis, MN’s Pestifere!
Forgoing the too-often trod path of categorization, Pestifere’s mélange of black/death/thrash stands out as an audial experience unique and punishing in equal measure. With an eye toward majestic riffing, raw rhythmic performance, and the evocative theme of humanity’s brevity in relation to its converse state of alignment with and aggression toward the natural world, the music of Pestifere will engage your mind while simultaneously coercing your skull into motion. Eihwaz/Bindrune Recordings will release Pestifere’s sophomore effort in early 2016, but for now, be sure to stream/buy their head-turning 2014 debut ‘Liminal’ below!
Like the image of Great Eagle Gwaihir circling slowly above Isengard, the epic blackened doom of Coldfells commands attention and awe from all that are earthbound. Elongated doom riff dirges, serrated with harmonious black metal tenets, sonically mourn the passing of mythical kingdoms once great. Chanted, sorrow-laden clean vocals coalesced with more hellish throatings together retell lost stories of old. These sounds, equally inspired by Appalachian winters and the tales of Tolkein’s ill-fated Numenoreans, form the often slow-marched/always unrelentingly-charged phalanx of Coldfell’s debut album ‘Nimloth the Fair’! Featuring the songwriting skills and guitarwork of conceptualist ATATA, the multi-faceted vocal talents of Aaron Carey (Nechochwen, Infirmary, End), with bass, choirs and drums courtesy über-instrumentalist Andrew D’Cagna (Brimstone Coven, Obsequiae, Unwilling Flesh), Bindrune and Eihwaz Recordings (together as one) will proudly present Coldfells first full-length collection of aural epistles, titled ‘Nimloth the Fair’, for the disseminating extreme metal fan, this Summer, 2015. For now, stream/buy Coldfells’ demo ‘Black Breath’ below!
Eihwaz Recordings (in union with Bindrune) proudly announces the signing of Kentucky’sAD INFINITUM ! With ascendant, astral black metal arias that stitch together matters of mind and universe, the music of Ad Infinitum evokes both celestial and terrestrial sounds of chaos and infinity. Whether it’s a dark ambient piece here or a saturated black voicing, an ever-present, carefully composed atmosphere drapes the soundscape of sole member JGS’s work. Allow Ad Infinitum’s droning, yet deeply layered songwriting style to take root in your mind with its deftly balanced dissonance and melodicism. Eihwaz/Bindrune will release Ad Infinitum’s second album (currently in the writing stages) late 2015, but in the meantime, you can stream/buy the debut Woven Within below, or purchase the cassette version released by Fragile Branch right here!:
Eihwaz Recordings proudly announces the signing of Columbus, Ohio’s Marsh Dweller! With twisting/turning melodies, foliage-enshrouded shrieks and precise percussion, John Kerr (drummer for doomsters Seidr and black metalmen Vit) grinds an intricately-layered axe with an intent that is both inward, cosmic and, most importantly, for all extreme metal fans of taste! Taking compositional cues from Vinterland, Windir, Fall of the Leafe and imbuing them with the dark auras of Dissection and Rotting Christ, Marsh Dweller’s music impacts emotionally and epically upon the ears of the listener. Eihwaz Recordings will release the Marsh Dweller debut this Fall 2015, but for an idea of what’s to come, be sure to stream/buy the 2014 demo here:
