baudelagon Pas lu Le Silmarillion, je ne connais rien de l'histoire de Gondolin. Une histoire bien sombre apparemment. Le violon finit d'étouffer une atmosphère musicale déjà très oppressante avec ses riffs lents et lourds. Les profondeurs de la Terre du Milieu ? En tout cas, il s'agit bien là d'un voyage, et on est tout surpris de voir de la lumière en sortant de la caverne. Ame vagabonde: entrez sans crainte, et bonne rêverie !

jscotts Volur are something special, each new record a journey into new amalgams of sound, yet with the ever-blowing folk melodies and saga-keeled doom you love to luff your sails and set your ships adrift. The addition of pedal steel here was inspired. Looking forward to the new full-length and what it augurs.

about

Recorded between 2017-2019, this EP was inspired by the story of the fall of Gondolin from the Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien.

This is the second entry in our collaboration series "Die Sprachen der Vögel," or "The Languages of Birds." The first was our tape single "Psychopomp" featuring Toronto Singer Ivy Mairi. Each subsequent edition will feature an artist from our community.

This entry features the immensely talented Michael Eckert on pedal steel guitar. While mostly used for country music, Michael's driving musical curiosity has taken him and his beautiful instrument to the far reaches of jazz, psychedelia and world music. And now to weirdo sludge metal about Middle Earth. Please check out his project "The Neon Eagle."

We are releasing this for free in the time of the pandemic, it was supposed to have a physical release but that has been delayed until the apocalypse ends. Feel free to pay if you so desire, otherwise, if the quarantine has effected you, please enjoy it for free. So please enjoy some new music from us. We have an album in the can and one more of these EPs to release as well. This will be released physically in the future.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone.

about

Völur Toronto, Ontario

Drawing from folk melodies, heathen spirituality and trance-inducing doom, Völur weave a hypnotic web of chthonic noise on the yawning gap of silence. A deep sound that moves through melodies, riffs and timbres slowly as a seeress chants rites for souls long past. Would you know more?

Lucas Gadke - Bass and voice
Laura C. Bates - Violin and voice
