Stirring from the slumber

Posted in News, Thoughts with tags , on December 25, 2014 by fossbrenna

It’s been quiet around here for a long while. A range of other activities and duties has left little time for the glories of the DIY tape life. That is about to change, although just for a brief moment.

There will be one more release on Fossbrenna Creations. It is a Vemod tape release, and as the plans are now, it looks like it will be the last, at least in the main line of releases, as they have traditionally been done (dubbed, cut, and distributed by yours truly, that is). It seems fitting to the end it here – it is both Fossbrenna release number ten, and by now it is approximately ten years since I started working with this little label. To end with Vemod, my own band, strikes me as equally suitable, since it is in many ways the reason I founded Fossbrenna Creations, and also an important part of the reason for now putting it to sleep.

More news to come of FBM010 closer to its release.

There are loose plans of other related projects, and even some sort of continuation, but knowing my slow self, I see no reason to present these visions before I know for certain that they will materialize. I would surely love to do some modest and low key label work in the future, but time will have to tell.

Midwinter is upon us – time to center oneself once more. Be well!

…until further notice. Waiting for the storms.

Askeregn/Vordr split 7″ EP

Posted in Related with tags , , on August 22, 2012 by fossbrenna

If you haven’t already heard the news: Tour de Garde has just released a brand new split 7″ EP between the Finnish Vordr and the Norwegian Askeregn, and as you know the latter previously released their first demo tape through Fossbrenna Creations:

They both play raw, primitive and natural black metal, and will not disappoint any fans of the style. This piece of wax is a must! Do not miss out. Highly recommended.

Waiting

“The winds within unchained, the wild waters unleashed, the fiery innermost set alight, to work the fertile soil of the primeval soul once more. Thunderous hearts giving birth to new suns, ablaze in the whirling heavens. Behold – their silence shall sing! The keys in our hands, the path before us, the portals within wide open. This is where gods die and we rise anew, again, and again, and again.”

 

All details done for ‘Venter på stormene’. It’s coming.

Vemodian tidings

Posted in News, Related with tags , , on June 25, 2012 by fossbrenna

Vemod is moving. After endless delays (once again) the twofold full length opus ‘Venter på stormene’ is soon ready to be sent to press. We are finishing the last remaining details as this is written. Those interested in hearing the title track of this album can visit our bandcamp HERE.

‘Venter på stormene’ will be released as CD and MC through Terratur Possessions and as LP through Blut & Eisen Productions.

Furthermore, some might have noticed that Vemod was announced to perform our first live concert ever at the upcoming Nidrosian Black Mass IV in Brussels, Belgium, february next year. We are very excited to take Vemod into this new dimension, and honoured to take part in this event.

More news to come. Onwards to Vemodia!

 

Old interview

Posted in Related with tags , , on June 10, 2012 by fossbrenna

An old Fossbrenna Creations interview from Kaleidoscope #6 has just been dug up and published on the Kaleidoscope blog. The questions were answered in 2007. A few fresh words on the current situation are to be read as well.

Things (and attitudes) have changed since those days, but some things remain the same. Again: Always different, always the same.

A quick fix of nostalgia for the cassette cultists and the underground dwellers. Thanks to A. Klemi and Kaleidoscope.

A breather

As we have actually run out of tapes here, I will not take any more orders before the new batch arrives. We will be up and running again soon enough. Thanks and a thousand mighty hails to those who have supported Fossbrenna Creations by buying the new releases! All the great feedback is also very much appreciated.

We are already planning new efforts. The future looks bright!

Oh, and, in the meantime, listen to one of the most underrated atmospheric metal bands I know of, the magnificent ORRERY:

Their only album – ‘Nine Odes to Oblivion’ – is an obscure masterpiece from start to finish. Seek it out, hunt it down, you will not regret it.
