HERNE has contribued the exclusive track 'Flames of Divination' for FolkMetalUK's compilation 'Tales From the Dark Isle'

 

24th APRIL 2016

Label news! 

SYMBEL new album due by end of year!! Listen to 2013 'Gyddigg' here.

ASTRAL RUNE BASTARDS are holing up in a caravan in Evesham over the summer to finish their second release of uneasy electronic lunacy - using only two android devices, a stack of conspiracy theory material, a 12v solar panel supply, several bottles of single malt whiskey, and a chemical toilet.

HERNE is recording in October, when M.B visits England, for a 2017 release. The track 'Flames of Divination', recorded last autumn for a UK compilation, should be available once the release is finalised, but that is out of our hands. 

Defying all business sense and reason, we are beginning to restock the distro.

More details in coming days...

NOV 10TH 2014

Two previously unreleased SYMBEL tracks have been added to the digital Hammerwych EP. Both songs were recorded for a 2004 album that was lost in a hard-drive catastrophe, struck down by the hammer of Thor no doubt for the band's use of triggered drums and an 'under 25s production sound'. Thanks to the miracle of modern technology, a pcb board, and lots of time, the tracks have been rescued, mixed and mastered. Free download with SYMBEL 'Wyrdwolf' shirt purchase ( scroll down for order button ). Customers who already have the EP should be able to access the new tracks. If not, get in touch.

 

 

Lots bubbling under the surface so check back often or email us. Cheers!

SEPTEMBER 26th 2014

You all ok we hope? September has been a ridiculously busy month here, so apologies for slow updates.

SYMBEL 'Wyrdwolf' shirts were posted out at the end of August - thanks again for your orders. We now have S and L left in ice grey for those who missed one, including free download of new Hammerwych single!

At the moment King Penda's Dungeon ( or perhaps more accurately for the period, a grim wooden and earth structure guarded by fierce, bristly hogs ) is being rebuilt in order to improve the quality and speed at which releases come to you. More news on coming Bretwaldas shirts, and imminent recordings from the label, in coming days. Cheers!

AUGUST 18TH 2014

Thanks to all of you who have ordered SYMBEL 'Wyrdwolf' shirts which have gone to the manufacturers today. Also SYMBEL 2013 'Gyddigg' CD is now sold out...forever. Work has however already started on the next full length with a wealth of nature- influenced black heathen metal demo material recorded.

Wartooth has intimated that this winter will see BRETWALDAS begin assembling some dirty heathen doom for album number four! We are also printing some chrome logo shirts in coming weeks to celebrate.

 

After the success of 2010 'Face of the Hunter' HERNE is also working on their second release which continues the theme of pagan death black forest folk metal dealing with Germanic myth and Anglosaxon magic.

 

Stay strong and well! Until next time!

These new songs are developed from the Gyddigg recordings from 2013 so feature once again live drums with delicious natural room reverb, alongside choral and filthy vocals and a wall of noisy guitars. Tracks are 'Folded Cross' - an exploration of the English Staffordshire Hoard mystery, and 'Surrounded by Orcs', a dedication to land-locked tribes everywhere. Download includes bonus track tenor and bass vocal score arrangement of 'Hammerwych', with pdf score for you to sing from at your drunken winter symbels!

Hails from Middle England! This month we have a British metal special in our trades section.

BALSAGOTH (UK) 'Apocryphal Tales' CD featuring previously unreleased demo tracks destined for the monumental thrash-black-death-fantasy-doom of ' A Black Moon Broods over Lemuria' LP of 1993, plus some bonus material. A nostalgic glimpse into early 90s British underground metal. Great sound! Support!

WOLVES OF AVALON (UK) - 'Carrion Crows Over Camlan' showcases twelve disciples of the British underground scene in an instrumental assault of folk metal lunacy.

SYMBEL (UK) 'Gyddigg...Possessed by the Rage of Wod' is down to the last few copies, and this pagan black metal rant will not be repressed. As a lot of material was recorded, and only the darkest tracks were chosen for 'Gyddigg...' fans can expect a new and uplifting release in the spring of 2014!

Professor Karl Spracklen can be seen here wearing one of the last SYMBEL 'Heathen Drinking Metal' shirts whilst he explains his new metal studies project looking specifically at black metal and the pagan/folk English scene. Scroll down to order the last shirts in size L.

 

GRENDEL'S SLEEP is recording new tracks over the next month and we hope to have news of a release in January. In the meantime enjoy this wintry track from the first EP from earlier this year. We have only a handful of these very striking digipacks left. Scroll down to order.

 

All CDs are sealed and ready to ship by first class post in the UK within 24 hours of your payment. Thanks for looking. Stay fit and well, and enjoy your Yule!

Ahoy comrades! Welcome to November 2013 in drizzly and depressed Europe. Here you could find some escape through our pagan metal, doom, folk and black metal products. Feel free to check the store and bandcamp links below.

Our latest release comes from the anarchic heathen world of Symbel.

PEND13CD SYMBEL - 'GYDDIGG...POSSESSED BY THE RAGE OF WOD' 2013

SYMBEL - GYDDIGG...Symbel Gyddigg and shirt

Release date 18th October 2013

Limited to 100 copies. UK £8 Eur £10 World £11

The third album by Symbel. 39 minutes of dark, grumpy heathen crust-metal. Six compositions concerning: contested pagan identities at ancient sites, the fall of the warrior cult in late dark-age organised warfare, eco-fascism, English bonded serfdom and the enclosure acts, a setting of Robert E Howards' poem 'Marching Song Of Connacht', and the practice of hilltop self-euthanasia. Drums recorded in an empty wooden brewery hall for a true natural reverb sound. Harsh vocals, occasional clean choral singing, electric and acoustic guitars. No copies being sent out for review, and never to be repressed.
