Finally some release news!

Northaunt & Svartsinn - "The Borrowed World" CD digifile now released, LP/CP-package available for pre-order (Shipping January 3rd). Read info below:


Inspired by Cormac Mc Carthy´s novel 'The Road', the two Norwegian masterminds Haerleif Langas and Jan Roger Petterson joined forces to create this stunning split album. This release brings finally new recordings since Northaunt´s 'Horizon' from 2006 and Svartsinn´s 'Elegies for the End' from 2009 (both CDs released on Cyclic Law).

'The Borrowed World' is the soundtrack for a world in decay, directed by the emotive and grandly melancholic signature of both projects. This is isolationist ambient music that unfolds its meditative atmosphere with majestic and melodic waves of droning sounds, environmental field recordings from the icy landscapes of the deepest North and magnificent Cello recordings of Amund Ulvestad.

The ashes of the late world carried on the bleak and temporal winds to and fro in the void. Carried forth and scattered and carried forth again. Everything uncoupled from it's shoring. Unsupported in the ashen air. Sustained by a breath, trembling and brief. If only my heart were stone.

This is the gatefold vinyl version that includes the CD as well in slip case. Limited to 300 copies.  CD edition comes in 6-panel digipak


1. 'If Only My Heart Were Stone.' Music by Northaunt.
2. 'Ashes Of The Late World.' Music by Svartsinn.
Cello by Amund Ulvestad.

In other news:

I have been talking to a video artist and we are currently planning a video for the song "Vemod". If you wonder what happened to the competition, well then I can say that I only got 1 contribution by the deadline. Not much of a competition :) I will post the link as soon as it is done.

Still working on the split LP with Northaunt, where we have taken inspiration from Cormac McCarthy's book The Road. Svartsinn will be accompanied by some guests on this release, the only one I can confirm right now is Amund Ulvestad, who will contribute with some very nice can hear a short snippet here:
