Today, Iron Bonehead Productions announces January 24th, 2020 as the international release date for Jordablod's highly anticipated second album, The Cabinet of Numinous Song, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

It was but 2017 when Jordablod burst from the void, fully formed, with their bold 'n' visionary debut album, Upon My Creation Pyre, courtesy of Iron Bonehead. A seemingly simple goal, the Swedish trio aimed to assemble the finest fragments of music and noise from all corners of the world, resulting in a grand diversity, but always maintaining the deepest awe for the core elements of black metal and death metal in its thematic and lyrical aspects. And indeed did Upon My Creation Pyre accomplish that, and then some: a work written in fire and ash, delivered with innermost devotion and passion. It was the documentation of a journey through mystical experience, from the initial touch by the divine, through ritual and meditations, to the ultimate initiation that is the cremation pyre.

Thus, if their debut was the death of the flesh but the liberation of the spirit, Jordablod find further resolution and wisdom within the spectral expanses of The Cabinet of Numinous Song. Duly titled, The Cabinet of Numinous Song weaves together fanciful-yet-frazzled threads of seemingly disparate frequencies, from hypnotically hovering black metal to sensually shimmering post-punk, from gnarled 'n' gnashing death metal to plaintive 'n' pastoral loner-folk. Far from a schizophrenic mess, Jordablod wield an elusive and profuse sort of magick - a sonic alchemy, if you will - that allows them to firmly/gently guide the listener across alien terrain, the album's seven songs each a landscape unto itself but comingling and coalescing into a grand tapestry that's truly Numinous Song. In fact, the album's 42-minute runtime reaches so deeply into the soul that you'd mistake this Cabinet for being both far shorter and far longer than that...

From the opening "A Grand Unveiling" to the closing "To Bleed Gold," from "The Two Wings of Becoming" to "The Beauty of Every Wound," Jordablod successively expand the consciousness and celebrate the renewing powers of transformation. More impossibly dazzling than ever, eclipsing the definition of "bold" and going beyond it, here resides The Cabinet of Numinous Song.

(Description by J. Campbell)⁣⁣
Active from 2001-2005, the highly revered side project of Leviathan’s Jef Whitehead, Lurker of Chalice, is mostly known for the 2005 self-titled full-length. Prior to that album, however, Wrest recorded two CD-R demos under the Lurker of Chalice name, each of which was limited to approximately 50 copies or less and sold at a single record store in San Francisco, near where he was living at the time. Like the full-length, both demos were eponymous, though the first demo was identified only by the initials “L.O.C.” written in runes. While a few of the songs from the demo era bear indicia of black metal, the material from that period is generally far more experimental, defying any effort to be neatly categorized. For “Tellurian Slaked Forest,” Wrest has distilled the best material from the early period of the project and edited, collaged, and compiled it, weaving together something more coherent and album-like. In this way, there seems to be something of his current artistic sensibility projected onto these recordings from nearly two decades earlier. In keeping with the confusing taxonomy of the project, the tracks on this LP are unnamed. The album opens with a song previously called “Lurker of Chalice” on the 2002 demo but is untitled on this release. The song showcases the haunting minimalism of Lurker of Chalice as slow acoustic guitars revolve around one another, arpeggiated chords ringing out above percussive accents. With the second track, a more sinister energy emerges, advanced by the first and only appearance of Wrest’s seething vocals. Over the full, 70-minute duration of this album, the music, almost completely instrumental, expands and contracts, evolves and disintegrates. Delicate ambient passages and labyrinthine excursions give way to electronic dirges of lumbering percussion with guitar shimmering transcendent above a melancholic lake of atmospheric sound and cascading sheets of electronics dissolving into lush acoustic melodies.

Ja das kommt schon jetzt. Das Album hat sich ja auch extrem verzögert, das ist eigentlich schon seit Jahren fertig.
Der Song ist gut, klingt bisschen mehr wie alte Membaris und entlockt von mal zu mal Hören mehr Details.

OPERA IX "The Call of the Wood" gatefold Double LP was just sent to press today.
There was no way to play around the original release layout wise so I tried to keep it as minimal as possible. First ever vinyl release.
Audio was mastered for vinyl by the up and coming Toxic Basement studios (he does all FOAD stuff and he knows his shit. Also very reliable), this should be out in february maximum.
400x black vinyl
100x vivid aquamarine/greenish vinyl
Digipack CD also is scheduled in time for this album's 25th anniversary in 2020

Sehr fein.
