Risci Bita Wudu | Album Update

Since there have been a couple of setbacks with the production of the debut Æþelruna album, I thought I would take the time to explain what's going on: My plan was create a short EP of only two tracks totalling about 25 minutes to be followed up next year with a similar release and perhaps shortly thereafter with a third. However, given some thought, this approach would be too time-consuming and perhaps cause undue delay to other projects, so my current plan is to speed up the recording of a third (and possibly fourth) track to add to this release in order to make it a full length album....

Demo Progress Update #1

This is likely the longest time it has taken any person to record a few tracks for a simple demo, however, life is full of distractions and some are more important than others. One huge distraction—a Masters dissertation on Anglo-Saxon heathenry—is now finally out of the way, which has given me more time to focus on Æþelruna and where the project is ultimately heading (although I am also actively seeking a publisher for the dissertation, as well as another). Unfortunately, one of my three original tracks, as well as my cover of Forefather's Wudugast aren't sounding the way I would like....

The New Demo

It has been several years now since the release of On Modranihte in 2011 and since then Æþelruna has only made brief appearances on two compilations; the free-to-download, 27 track Burzum tribute, Forsvunnet Filosofem (Mirkwood/Wodfreca, 2012) and the limited Hwit Wyrm ofer Angelcynne (Wodfreca, 2013). http://youtu.be/z0o_jIp0IAo All four of these tracks are available for free at the Æþelruna Bandcamp page. Work on further releases has been an ongoing process, but many tracks have simply not come together in a way that suited the original intention. The 17 minute epic, Hengist ond Horsa—announced...
