Absava – “Kaikkiallinen – Kosminen – Tajunta” LP

Long awaited vinyl version of the debut album by Finnish supergroup Absava. Following a triumphant demo, the duo of Antti Klemi (Absolute Key, Circle Of Ouroborous etc…) and Harri Kuokkanen (Hail Conjurer, Ride For Revenge etc…) deliver eleven tracks of haunting experimental Black Metal with an up-front dark industrial influence colliding in a maelstrom of unhinged vocals, buried organic riffs and swirling electronics. As sombre as it is terrifying. 100 copies on black vinyl with printed labels in thick PVC sleeves with sticker and insert.

Wapentake – “Madrigals” LP

Legion Blotan is proud to present the beautiful 2021 album from Hampshire’s Wapentake. The principle musical outlet of one Hreodbeorht, Wapentake delivers seven tracks of Black Metal influenced Folk with an emphasis on the acoustic. At times both sobering and haunting, yet at others reminding of the gentle quiet of spring time in the pastures of rural England. The musicality of Wapentake evolves ever further with time, incorporating more percussive elements than previous releases which make for a dynamic listen. “Madrigals” is a glowing rarity in the annals of modern British music in general but even more so within our rigid underground scenes; Hreodbeorht’s ability to take the listener on a journey and tell a cohesive story throughout this instrumental work is astounding in our over-literal world. 100 copies on black vinyl with black labels in thick PVC sleeves with full colour insert.

Celtic Rainforest – “Ty’n’y’coedcae” Tape

The elusive and un-classifiable Celtic Rainforest returns with five new tracks of unadulterated underground music with a pro-Welsh message. Classical acoustic instrumentation merges with working class acapella folk-song rendition stuck between claustrophobic electronics under a blanket of defiant Black Metal aesthetics. Call it what you want, Cadwyr has a unique vision for his music and a tale to tell. Dedicated to Welsh Pagan fanatic William Price. Pro-printed glossy insert.

Listen: https://legion-blotan.bandcamp.com/album/tynycoedcae

Eoforan – “Demo I” Tape

New trio formed from the ashes of Eofor present their first demo, featuring members of Sump and other Legion Blotan stalwarts. Five tracks of raw Black Metal sewage with a post-punk feel. Pro-printed glossy insert.

Listen: https://legion-blotan.bandcamp.com/album/demo-i-2

Fangfoss/Ruin Trajectory – “Split” Tape

Short and sharp split tape of Black Metal Punk with all new tracks by Yorkshire’s Fangfoss and Wapentake side-project Ruin Trajectory. For fanatics of the sound. Pro-printed glossy insert.

Listen: https://legion-blotan.bandcamp.com/album/split-7

Ride For Revenge – “Feed The Infamy” Tape

Tape version of 2021 Ride For Revenge album “Feed The Infamy”. Heavy and occult black metal from Finland. Horrible, slimy and fucked up. The unique sound of Ride For Revenge is truly like no other and can never be replicated. Essential underground music. Red tapes with stickers and pro-printed double sided glossy insert with lyrics.

Listen: https://rideforrevenge.bandcamp.com/album/feed-the-infamy

Ruin Trajectory – “Hostile Environment” Tape

The second demo by Wapentake side-project Ruin Trajectory. In stark contrast to the beautiful calming sounds of Wapentake, here we have five tracks of Raw Black Metal with Punk influences. Killer vocals on top a simple and effective foundation of buzzing guitars and stomping 4/4 drums. For fans of Aad Sleck and Sump etc… Pro-printed glossy insert.

V/A – “Declaration Of Yorkist Anti-Modernist Belief” Tape + Zine

A four-way primitive declaration encompassing some of the more recent Yorkshire-based projects under the Legion Blotan banner; the bleak Black-Doom of Jorvik, the classic Black Metal sound of Ivar’s Burial, the post-punk influenced raw power of Sarig and the Blackened Punk Stomp of Fangfoss. A truly eclectic compilation tied together by the independent spirit of Yorkshire. A line in the sand and a fist in the face of the weak modern world. Tape with stickers complete with a 16 page A6 booklet with information and artwork by each band.

Void Of Autumn/Hylster – “Split” Tape

A meeting of Northern minds, from Denmark and Finland respectively, all of whom are not afraid to push the boundaries of their musical spheres. While rooted in Black Metal, the Void Of Autumn tracks deliver their audial assault with an almost No-Wave edge. Likewise, the Hylster tracks are rooted in the dark frozen sound of fellow Scandinavian acts but have exchanged the buzzsaw guitars for lush synth work and to great effect. Pro-printed A5 double-sided glossy insert with lyrics by each band.

Wælcwealrn – “Ancient Pain & Agony” Tape

The unholy Northern alliance of the Hotchin Pit / Legion Blotan freudenschaft keeps moving ever forward with this reissue of the first two ultra-limited tapes (“Angrislic Pains In The North-Eastern Lands” 2020 & “Razored Cartilage” 2021) by Northumberland Raw Black Metal project Wælcwealrn. Black tapes with stickers and pro-printed double-sided glossy insert.

Wulvyr – “MMXXI” Tape

We are proud to present the Legion Blotan version of the first demo by new Southern English band Wulvyr. A full length opus of first offering delivering a boiling torrent of raw blackened death poured over a propulsive core of primitive rhythms. Drawn with a malevolently cold impiety from the ancient soils of the British Isles, Wulvyr is a band to keep your eyes and ears on.  Black tapes with stickers and full colour pro-printed glossy insert.
